2015 Barcelona MotoGP Qualifying Result: Facing Fresh Faces With Strategy

Results and summary of qualifying for the MotoGP class at Barcelona:

Aleix Espargaro has translated the pace he had in practice into a pole position at Barcelona, his second ever in MotoGP, and the first earned purely on merit. The Suzuki rider used the uprated GSX-RR and the soft tire to maximum effect, fending off a fast and smart challenge from Jorge Lorenzo to take top spot in qualifying.

Jorge Lorenzo had been saving tires during practice for a three-run strategy at Barcelona, knowing that he had to try to face down a lot of riders with soft tires. He went out early, came in after a single lap, swapped bikes, went out again, and repeated the entire process a second time after that. The strategy nearly paid off, but not quite: Lorenzo found himself a tenth short of pole position, despite lapping under the pole record. Lorenzo finds himself with two Suzukis ahead of him, Maverick Viñales posting an impressive last lap to grab second on the grid, and putting the two Suzukis in the top two slots.

Marc Marquez will head up the second row of the grid. The Repsol Honda rider was the first man to break the old pole record, but was unable to hold off the Suzuki onslaught. Andrea Dovizioso also tried and came up short, ending qualifying in 5th, ahead of Dani Pedrosa. Pedrosa looked capable of improving, but on his second run he ran into Yonny Hernandez, and had to pull up short.

Valentino Rossi will once again be forced to start from the third row, the Movistar Yamaha rider qualifying in 7th, ahead of the Tech 3 bike of Bradley Smith. Cal Crutchlow sits in 9th on the LCR Honda, the Englishman coming close to a front row start, but crashing in Turn 10 when he was on his last very fast lap, just a few hundredths off the time of Espargaro.

2015 Barcelona Moto3 Qualifying Practice Result: Pole Sitter Blasts Past Waiting Masses

Results and summary of Moto3 qualifying:

Enea Bastianini has taken his debut pole in Grand Prix, putting in a scorching lap to blast his way to the front of the grid. Bastianini took advantage of the general Moto3 malaise as almost everyone was looking around searching for a tow, then threaded his way through the pack to put nearly eight tenths of a second between himself and the rest of the grid at that point in the session. Danny Kent then followed suit, closing to within two tenths of Bastianini to grab 2nd spot on the grid, and a strong front row start. Jorge Navarro put in a good late charge to take 3rd, at the head of a close group consisting of Niccolo Antonelli, Miguel Oliveira, Efren Vazquez and Fabio Quartararo. Teammate Navarro in 3rd and Quaratararo in 7th are separated by just 0.056 of a second.

Race Direction are likely to be handing out a veritable points bonanza for Moto3 QP, as the behavior of riders waiting for tows at Barcelona became ever more egregious. Almost the entire grid went out at the same time, with twenty or more riders hanging around on the racing line looking for a tow, and blocking the progress of much faster riders. At Barcelona, a tow is said to be worth six tenths of a second, but too many riders wasted their opportunity of a fast lap waiting for other riders, and endangering others in the process.

2015 Barcelona Moto2 FP3 Result: Corsi Edges Zarco

Simone Corsi was the fastest man in the final session of free practice for the Moto2 class, the Italian taking over from Johann Zarco in the final minutes of practice. Championship leader Zarco was quickest for most of the session, clearly in command of Moto2 and doing well in every session at every track. Luis Salom took 3rd, outshining his HP Pons teammate, Alex Rins down in lowly 12th spot. Reigning champion Tito Rabat was close to the pace of Corsi and Zarco, less than two tenths behind the top two, and fractionally faster than Jonas Folger. Rabat's Marc VDS teammate Alex Marquez is having his strongest weekend of the season so far, ending FP3 in 6th, a third of a second behind Corsi.

2015 Barcelona MotoGP FP3 Result: Viñales Fastest As Suzukis Shine

Maverick Viñales has taken top spot in the final session of free practice, in a session where both Suzukis showed strong pace throughout. Viñales put in a set of soft tires at the end of FP3 to blast to the fastest lap of the weekend so far, deposing Jorge Lorenzo from top spot.

It was Lorenzo who was most impressive, however, the Movistar Yamaha rider equalling Aleix Espargaro's best lap of the weekend early in the session in a long run of ten laps in the 1'41s. Espargaro ended the session in 3rd, putting two Suzukis in the top ten, and finishing ahead of Andrea Dovizioso on the Ducati. Pol Espargaro was the next fastest Yamaha, the Tech 3 rider pushing hard to get straight through to Q2 at the end of FP3, with Valentino Rossi also ensuring he was into Q2 by bagging 6th spot. Marc Marquez was 7th on the Repsol Honda, but the reigning world champion was concentrating on race pace, doing a long run which was close to the pace of Lorenzo's.

Cal Crutchlow ended within a tenth of Marc Marquez in 8th, and ahead of Yonny Hernandez on the Pramac Ducati. Hernandez looked to be on an even faster lap, but ran into traffic in the shape of Jorge Lorenzo. Bradley Smith was the last rider to make it straight to Q2, the Monster Tech 3 Yamaha man bumping Dani Pedrosa into 11th. He will now have to make it to Q2 via the Q1 session.

2015 Barcelona MotoGP FP2 Result: Aleix Espargaro Puts Suzuki On Top

The updates Suzuki have brought to Barcelona are starting to pay dividends. After getting both riders in the top five during the morning session of free practice for MotoGP, they have repeated that achievement again in FP2, with Aleix Espargaro topping the second session by nearly three tenths of a second. The Repsol Hondas are fast, especially for just a single lap, with both Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa pushing to the top of the order at the end of the session, Marquez taking 2nd, Pedrosa grabbing 3rd.

Andrea Dovizioso was the first of the Ducatis home in 4th place, just ahead of the second Suzuki of Maverick Viñales. Andrea Iannone took 6th, just ahead of Jorge Lorenzo, who was the first Yamaha home in 7th. Cal Crutchlow put the LCR Honda into 8th spot, with Pol Espargaro the next best Yamaha, the Tech 3 rider over a second slower than his brother on the Suzuki. Scott Redding put in a quick lap to grab 10th, and the final spot in Q2, a good recovery after a big crash earlier in the session.

2015 Barcelona Moto2 FP1 Result: Zarco Leads Lowes And Folger

Johann Zarco was the fastest of the Moto2 riders on Friday morning at Barcelona, the championship leader setting the pace from the very beginning of the session. Sam Lowes translated a successful test into speed during FP1, the Speed Up rider taking 2nd spot a quarter of a second behind Zarco. It was only by the very narrowest of margins, however: Lowes was just one thousandth of a second faster than Jonas Folger in third, while Tito Rabat ended the session in 4th, a further six thousandths behind Folger.
