2019 Jerez Moto2 Qualifying Result: One For The Audience

old_url: 

The final session of the day was an almost sunny affair and no one shone brighter than Jorge Navarro, the Spaniard proving that Friday’s excellent results were in no way a fluke. Navarro took over the lead on his fourth lap and it was good enough to put his Speed Up machine on the front row with a first pole position in the class for the Spaniard. And if the other classes failed to get this achievement and repay the packed stands, Moto2 made the local audience proud with a Spanish front row lockout. Alex Marquez was a tenth off pole after topping the session early on and settled for second on the grid, while Augusto Fernandez had an excellent afternoon to join the front row of the grid on his return from injury.

Remy Gardner would have preferred to replicate his top FP3 result but first on the second row doesn’t sound so bad, one place ahead of Nicolo Bulega, who also made a respectable comeback from arm pump surgery. Lorenzo Baldassarri held on to the final spot on row two after a challenging couple of days around the Spanish track. Fabio Di Giannantonio showed up to the party when it mattered and secured seventh grid spot ahead of veteran Tom Luthi and Tetsuta Nagashima.

Brad Binder rounded out the top ten after escaping Q1 in lead position and the KTM man opens row four ahead of Sam Lowes and another Q1 participant, Xavi Vierge. After an excellent start to his season, Marcel Schrotter stumbled a little through qualifying and got stuck on row five, in between Luca Marini and Andrea Locatelli.

2019 Jerez MotoGP Qualifying Result: New Is Always Better

old_url: 

Considering the pleasingly small gaps separating riders in practice, there were plenty of them eager to get some early brownie points (and/or birthday presents) in qualifying. None more so than Marc Marquez, the world champion already down into the 1:36s on his first lap, nudging the all time lap record but not quite getting there. While the Honda man’s trademark two-stop strategy was unfolding, Franco Morbidelli became his closest threat, the Petronas rider coming as close as four hundredths of a second from pole. Meanwhile, teammate Fabio Quartararo went stealth at the start of the session only to attack the lap record on his final run, snatching an extraordinary first pole position in the premier class as the youngest rider to do so, robbing Marquez in more ways than one.

Just as outstanding was Petronas Yamaha’s one-two on the front row once Morbidelli also got the best of Marquez at the checkered flag, an amazing achievement for a young satellite team on only its fourth race. The reigning world champion had a tame few slides by his standards that hindered his final charge but Marquez stayed on the front row, nine hundredths of a second slower than the Yamaha duo. Andrea Dovizioso will be opening row two ahead of Maverick Viñales as top factory Yamaha and top Q1 escapee, followed by LCR’s Cal Crutchlow.

Danilo Petrucci could not repeat his practice performance and had to settle for seventh after a late tip-off in turn one. Takaaki Nakagami’s Honda and Alex Rins’ Suzuki filled in a diverse row three while one row behind, Pecco Bagnaia showed the way after being the one to push Valentino Rossi out of Q2. Jorge Lorenzo’s birthday present was one of those that distant relatives get you rather than what you actually want: an 11th grid position after a fall at turn 2 in the final three minutes. Joan Mir will be closing row four, while Rossi will have to pull off another excellent comeback from fifth row.

2019 Jerez MotoGP FP4 Result: Marquez Back On Top

old_url: 

One final practice prancing for the premier class before things get fast and furious for qualifying and durable hard rubber was out in force. Marc Marquez took it on a couple of runs and got it to post a set of high 1:37s and low 1:38s on his way to top position. Perhaps surprisingly given practice results, his main challenger on the timesheets was Maverick Viñales, the Yamaha man swapping roles with his teammate and taking his turn at the business end of proceedings, only one hundredth of a second slower than the reigning world champion.

Cal Crutchlow made a late move up the timesheets to join the top three, while Fabio Quartararo was taking his role as lead Frenchman very seriously, impressing once again in fourth position and consistently at the top end throughout the session. Andrea Dovizioso rode his top Ducati to fifth position, about four tenths slower than Marquez and looking decent on race pace too. Takaaki Nakagami and Pecco Baganaia were a welcome sight in sixth and seventh positions, ahead of the likes of FP3 record breaker Danilo Petrucci. Franco Morbidelli and Alex Rins completed the top ten, while Valentino Rossi warmed up for Q1 with a 13th place.

2019 Jerez Moto3 Qualifying Result: A First Time For Everything

old_url: 

A few extra degrees were added to the thermometer reading by the time the first qualifying session of the day unfolded but the lightly grey clouds were here to stay. The lightweight class opened proceedings with Niccolo Antonelli getting a taste for top spot without the familiar additional off-roading and proclaiming himself the early leader of Q2. Compatriot Celestino Vietti soon demoted him and the young Italian was leading as the calm before the storm set in.

Once the final time attack kicked off, Aron Canet’s machine was the first to blink and the Spaniard had to pull off with a mechanical and miss his shot at the second time attack. Meanwhile, his rivals were demoting him down the timesheets, with Antonelli looking set to take pole until a mistake in the final turn slowed him down. However, pole position on Spanish ground stayed with Italy, Lorenzo Dalla Porta scoring his very first pole and will hope to break the jinx of no winners from pole in Jerez. Tatsuki Suzuki was unlucky to miss out on top honours by only four thousandths of a second, while fellow Q1 qualifier Vietti completed the front row line-up.

Antonelli was forced to settle for fourth, starting ahead of compatriot Dennis Foggia and FP3 leader Gabriel Rodrigo. Despite the poorly timed mechanical, Canet got to keep seventh position and will share third row with home favourite Marcos Ramirez and Albert Arenas, whose return to action after missing two rounds due to injury was rewarded with ninth position on the grid.

Romano Fenati failed to dazzle this time around and could only round out the top ten, ahead of Ayumu Sasaki and Jakub Kornfeil. Andrea Migno survived Q1 to line up 13th on the grid, showing the way to John McPhee and championship leader Jaume Masia. Some casualties of Q1 were Tony Arbolino, Alonso Lopez and Darryn Binder, who will have to rely on an excellent start to bring them back into contention.

2019 Jerez Moto2 FP3 Result: Gardner Takes Centre Stage

old_url: 

After another delay caused by yet another red flag in the premier class, Moto2 riders took their turn to ensure a Q2 place and finish whatever work they had left on setup. Finding time was not an issue in the cooler conditions and a handful of riders beat Friday’s benchmark from the off, led by early leader Alex Marquez. The Spaniard showed good pace in his long runs but did not get to keep top position to the checkered flag because of a rapid Remy Gardner. The Australian took over the lead in the final third of the session to show the way by one tenth of a second and under the lap record. Marquez settled for second, with Sam Lowes completing the top three.

Friday leader Jorge Navarro had a decent session in fourth place while Nicolo Bulega made a big step in the cooler conditions to join the top five. Tetsuta Nagashima, Fabio Di Giannantonio, Augusto Fernandez and Marcel Schrotter closely followed the Italian, the entire group only three tenths off the leader. Championship leader Lorenzo Baldassarri rounded out the top ten despite a late crash at turn two which added to an already difficult weekend for the Italian.

The final men to secure a Q2 position were Tom Luthi, Enea Bastianini, Luca Marini and Simone Corsi, while Brad Binder was the first to miss the cut by failing to improve on his best time from Friday. Despite missing on a top 14 position, the KTM rider was less than half a second off the leader and the top 24 ended the session covered by one second.

2019 Jerez MotoGP FP3 Result: Petrucci Blasts Lap Record

old_url: 

Overcast and cooler conditions offered the perfect conditions for the premier class to fight for Q2 honours and some were more eager to get going than others. Alex Rins put in a banker lap on softs early on to join the provisional top ten while Valentino Rossi’s Yamaha thrived in the conditions to also take a massive step on the timesheets, from 14th to 6th. However, Marc Marquez was keen to keep the spotlight on himself and immediately took over at the top on a medium-hard tyre combination. With those the only early changes in the timesheets, riders turned their focus back on race setup, despite conditions not being particularly relevant for race time.

Things were going to plan until Cal Crutchlow went down quite rapidly at turn 9 and the session was red flagged to fix the air fence with 17 minutes left on the clock. The British rider was unharmed and did not miss too much track time as he could restart with the rest of his colleagues. With most of the grid on soft rubber in preparation for a time attack, the battle started early and the initial exchanges were between Fabio Quartararo and Danilo Petrucci, who traded lap records.

However, there was enough time for one final time attack that unleashed chaos, the top 10 changing names every other second. Petrucci was the biggest winner, the Italian setting the first ever lap in the 1:36s on a MotoGP bike in Jerez. Marquez came up short by half a tenth, while Quartararo kept a very dignified top three position. Andrea Dovizioso and Joan Mir posted identical times in fourth and fifth, with Rins dropping to sixth but only three tenths off the leader. The Suzukis were followed by the Hondas of Takaaki Nakagami and Cal Crutchlow, while Franco Morbidelli and Jorge Lorenzo snatched the final top ten positions.

Birthday boy Lorenzo was one of the first out the gates and he scored a rodeo moment at newly named Pedrosa Corner, a brief stint at the top and eventually just about held on to a Q2 place ahead of unlucky Valentino Rossi. The Italian missed out by only four hundredths of a second and will have to battle Jack Miller, The Espargaro duo and an anonymous Maverick Vinales in Q1.

2019 Jerez Moto3 FP3 Result: Rodrigo Tops Overcast Session

old_url: 

The usually gloriously sunny Jerez had a surprise in store on Saturday morning, when against all forecasts, drops of rain touched the tarmac before the lightweight class started their gallop. However, the cooler cloudier conditions did not seem to impede riders too much in their quest for Q2 and the fight was on at the halfway mark of the session.

Gabriel Rodrigo was the winning party in the end, the Gresini rider three tenths faster than Ayumu Sasaki and with Albert Arenas making a comeback in the top three, only one thousandth of a second behind the Petronas rider. Early leader Niccolo Antonelli was held back in fourth by another minuscule gap his faster rivals, while John McPhee managed to join the top five after a low key start to his session.

Aron Canet got lucky to keep his sixth position after going down in turn 11 on his final flying lap and giving his team a very short lunch break. On the other hand, two excellent performances came from Jakub Kornfeil in seventh place and Makar Yurchenko in eighth. Local boy Marcos Ramirez seems to have saved his weekend after an uncharacteristically slow start on Friday by finishing ninth, ahead of a fine result for Stefano Nepa who rounded out the top ten.

The final men to make it directly to the second qualifying session were Lorenzo Dalla Porta, Raul Fernandez, Dennis Foggia and Romano Fenati. Fenati saved himself at the last minute after suffering from mechanical trouble at the start of the session and running 20th with only three minutes to go, before snatching the final Q2 place. The likes of Tatsuki Suzuki and Tony Arbolino ran out of luck (and track time), dropping to 16th and 18th following fast crashes while running in top positions.

2019 Jerez Moto2 FP2 Result: Schrotter Sneaks Ahead Of Marquez

old_url: 

Despite a small delay with the start due to a late red flag in the MotoGP session, the intermediate class riders were eager to go out and brave the heat. While the FP1 benchmark took some beating, Tetsuta Nagashima was the fastest man on track for much of the session, dethroning FP1 leader Jorge Navarro. Fresh rubber came out of its heaters for the final five minutes and it made a massive difference to the timesheets. Marcel Schrotter was the main beneficiary, the Dynavolt rider leading the way from Alex Marquez, who missed out on top honours by only one hundredth of a second. Meanwhile, Navarro failed to improve due to a crash at turn 11 in the final couple of minutes and dropped to third.

Augusto Fernandez kept spirits up in the Flexbox HP 40 team with a fourth place and less than half a tenth keeping him away from top spot. Nagashima did not manage to go faster than his early benchmark and settled for fifth, while Bo Bendsneyder and Tom Luthi made an appearance in sixth and seventh positions. Fabio Di Giannantonio, Sam Lowes and Remy Gardner added to the list of names that missed out on top positions in FP1 but made a recovery to complete the top ten for the afternoon session.

No such luck for Luca Marini and Brad Binder in 11th and 12th spots, although both riders finished the session barely four tenths away from the leader. Coming from a challenging FP1 session, Lorenzo Baldassarri’s afternoon did not get much better with a fall at turn two in the final 15 minutes. Regardless, the Italian climbed into 13th place, faster than the likes of Enea Bastianini and a very subdued Xavi Vierge.

2019 Jerez MotoGP FP2 Result: Petrucci Makes Ducati Proud

old_url: 

The 50 degrees of track temperature did not seem too inviting for the riders or the Michelins but they got the job done in the second session of the day for the premier class. Marc Marquez picked up where he left off – at the top of the timesheets but the Ducatis didn’t allow him too much breathing space with Danilo Petrucci half a tenth behind for most of the session. However, times were not quite tumbling compared to the morning session until riders threw fresh soft rubber at it for the final five minutes. Petrucci managed to beat FP1’s benchmark with three minutes left on the clock but the red flag waved soon due to strange crashes at turn five for Karel Abraham and Bradley Smith.

With the countdown restarting at 02:42, riders only got one flying lap to make a difference on the timesheets. No one managed to change the top four, Petrucci showing the way to teammate Andrea Dovizioso, while Cal Crutchlow recovered from a slow start to jump into third as top Honda. Marquez did the opposite of his rivals, starting the session on soft rubber and finishing on hard tyres but the Spaniard managed to hang on to fourth position, two tenths off the lead.

Maverick Vinales took advantage of his final flying lap to climb into fifth after an underwhelming session, with fellow Yamaha of Fabio Quartararo trailing him by a tenth of a second. Wildcard Stefan Bradl made Honda proud with an impressive seventh place, ahead of colleagues Takaaki Nakagami and Jorge Lorenzo. Pecco Bagnaia completed the top ten and the apprentice did better than the master in FP2, Valentino Rossi having another low key session in 14th position. Things did not look much brighter at Suzuki, with COTA victor Alex Rins down in 16th, one place ahead of Joan Mir, the rookie ending his Friday with an odd tumble through the gravel trap.
