2017 Sepang Moto2 QP: An Eye On The Prize

Franco Morbidelli moved a step closer to the 2017 Moto2 World Championship with a pole position at the Sepang circuit Saturday in Malaysia. Morbidelli's 2'06.406 almost eclipsed the existing pole record and put the points leader in perfect position to clinch the championship Sunday. The Italian rider, who crashed at Turn 7 during the session, leads Thomas Luthi by 29 points with two races remaining.

Miguel Oliveira, two tenths back, grabbed the second spot on the front row. Next to Oliveira was the new kid on the grid, Fabio Quartararo. The young Frenchman had the best qualifying session of his rookie Moto2 season with the final front-row position. This pushed Alex Marquez (4th) into the top slot on the second row. And next to him is championship contender Thomas Luthi. 

But Luthi's status for the race remained unclear late Saturday. On a fast lap late in the session, Luthi suffered a brutal highside at Turn 3 that shattered his facesheld when his head hit the track. While the Swiss rider initially was stretchered off, cameras later caught him standing up and talking to the trackside medical staff before heading to the clinic for evaluation.

Luthi, who holds the Sepang Moto2 pole record, must finish at least five points in front of Morbidelli on Sunday to keep the championship leader from clinching the Moto2 title this weekend. Francesco Bagnaia (6th) completed the second row.

2017 Sepang MotoGP QP: Recalling Old Records

Dani Pedrosa swiped pole position with his last flying lap at the Sepang Circuit in Malaysia Saturday relegating Johann Zarco to second on the grid by less that two-hundredths of a second. Pedrosa's fast lap of 1'59.212 pushed within two-tenths of a second of his own pole record from two years ago.

Johann Zarco (2nd) continued a strong weekend and completed the 15-minute Q2 as the top Yamaha. Andrea Dovizioso grabbed the final spot on the front row with his Ducati, a little more than two hundredths from the top spot. Valentino Rossi, who had set the top qualifying time with less than two minutes remaining, was pushed from first to fourth in the session's final minute. 

Next to Rossi (4th) on the second row of the grid is his Yamaha teammate Maverick Vinales. Completing the second row is Jorge Lorenzo (6th) who led the session early on.

And leading the third row? Marc Marquez (7th) with one of his worst qualifying sessions of his MotoGP career.  Marquez crashed at tight Turn 15 early on his first fast lap. After returning to the pits, he set his best lap on his backup bike but could not improve on his position when he switched to primary Honda at the session's end.

Alex Rins, the fastest rider from Q1, improved his lot with eighth and top-Suzuki time. Rins was the final of the top eight riders to dip into the 1'59s. His Suzuki teammate Andrea Iannone grabbed ninth, completing the third row. Cal Crutchlow, who crashed during qualifying, rounded out the top 10.

2017 Sepang MotoGP FP4: Marquez Finds His Race Pace

Finding both tires and a setup he liked more than in FP3, championship leader Marc Marquez set the fastest time of the fourth practice as riders began working on race settings before the afternoon's qualifying session. Marquez's 2'00.438 put him two-tenths ahead of leading rival Andrea Dovizioso (2nd). 

Suzuki's Alex Rins, who had one of his best races of the season at the recent Philip Island contest, finished the fourth practice in a surprising third place. Johann Zarco took the top Yamaha spot in fourth, just barely in front of Dani Pedrosa (5th).

2017 Sepang Moto3 QP: A Lap For The Ages

In a historic performance, newly crowned world champion Joan Mir grabbed pole position in the Moto3 qualifying practice Saturday in Sepang with a 2’12.078 that shattered the former record lap by more than three-tenths of a second.

Mir's record, set on his final lap of qualifying , left him three-tenths of a second clear of his closest challenger, Jorge Martin (2nd) who seemed to have pole locked up with a near-record performance of his own. John McPhee made a late fast run to seize the final spot on the front row.

Jack Miller, now in MotoGP, previously held the Moto3 pole record which he set in 2014 with a 2'12.450. Martin, on his second fast lap with 31 minutes left in the session, climbed within seven-thousandth of that time, leaving the rest of the field seemingly fighting for second, at best. And for most of the session, that seemed to be the case with only two riders getting within a second of Martin's lap.

Mir, however, was one of those two, evenutally climbing to within eight-tenths of Martin's push for his ninth pole of the season with less than a minute remaining.  Then with time nearly expired, Mir pushed for a final fast lap, catching slipstreams in two crucial places and breaking the record with no time remaining.

2017 Sepang Moto2 FP3: Morbidelli Dominates

Franco Morbidelli, Moto2 championship points leader, dominated the final practice before Saturday afternoon's qualifying session with a 2'06.605 at the Sepang circuit in Malaysia. While Morbidelli's time was a mere seven-hundredths of a second clear of Francesco Bagnaia (2nd), it was his consistency that should worry rivals. Morbidelli, who sits 29 points ahead of Thomas Luthi with one race remaining, spent much of the session in the 2'06s -- an indication of a relentless race pace.

Luthi, who is trying to prevent the Italian from clinching the championship this weekend, ended FP3 as fourth-fastest, just a shade slower than Miguel Oliveira (3rd.) Brad Binder had his best practice of the weekend by far with fifth, just two-tenths from the top. Alex Marquez set his best time late to take sixth. Mattia Passini joined Marquez in ther 2'07s for seventh just in front of mid-session crasher, Takaaki Nakagami (8th).

2017 Sepang MotoGP FP3: Rossi Is One By Undercutting Two

Valentino Rossi seized the top spot in FP3 when he became the only rider to drop into a sub, two-minute laptime at the Sepang circuit Saturday morning. Rossi's set his 1'59.947 -- the weekend's fastest time by any rider -- with no time left in the third practice. Johann Zarco, who led the session late, was bumped into second by the Italian's final lap. Dani Pedrosa jumped from 11th into third near the end of practice as riders began switching to the soft-option rear tire in an attempt to ensure a top-10 finish.

Andrea Dovizioso grabbed fourth, the Ducati rider's first Sepang practice shy of the top spot. Teammate Jorge Lorenzo, who led FP3 briefly, continued his good form from the previous day's wet FP2 with a fifth. Jack Miller took advantage of the heat -- the track reached 45 degrees celcius (113 farenheit) by the end of the morning session -- to take sixth.  Cal Crutchlow (7th) finished just clear of Andrea Iannone (8th). 

Championship leader Marc Marquez never threatened FP3's top times to take ninth. Rossi's Yamaha teammate Maverick Vinales just squeaked into the top ten by five-hundredths of a second. The top 10 riders go directly into Q2 later in the day along with the top two finishers from Q1.

Most riders spent much of the early FP3 session working on setup with the hard-option rear tire -- the likely Sunday choice for the race in sweltering conditions on the 5.5 km track. But with 11 minutes to go, teams began fitting the bikes with the softer rear tire in order to push the lap times down and ensure a trip straight to Q2.

Miller struck first with a 2'00.406 to take the top spot. But five minutes later, Rossi briefly seized the top of the timesheet only to be bumped by Jorge Lorenzo with a 2'00.163. Then Pedrosa, who has been circulating in 11th spot, shot to the front with a 2'00.124. He soon was bumped to second by Johann Zarco.

Then Rossi struck last and best, dipping once into the 1'59s after much of the field had taken the checkered flag.

2017 Sepang Moto3 FP3: Martin, Weather Both Heat Up

Jorge Martin took advantage of a rapidly drying track to take the top time in FP3 Saturday at the Sepang circuit Sunday as rider set their fastest times of the weekend. Martin's 2'15.606 put him four-tenths of a second ahead of the number two finisher Juanfran Guevara.  Newly crowned World Champion Joan Mir seized third as the day began heating up. 

Jules Danilo (4th) just pipped Romano Fenati (5th) who led FP3 before the end-of session, dry-track shootout. Hometown favorite Adam Norrodin continued a strong weekdend with sixth closely tracked by Enea Bastianini (7th). Aron Canet lost his wet-track pace from Friday to settled into eighth. Gabriel Rodrigo (9th) and John McPhee rounded out the top 10.

2017 Sepang Moto2 FP2: Marquez Masters Mixed Conditions

Alex Marquez appears ready to prove that his recent win in the wet at Motegi was no fluke. On a damp Sepang track with intermittent rainfall, the Spaniard topped the timesheet and ran consistently fast times throughout the second Friday session. Lorenzo Baldasarri (2nd) finished his day just two-hundredths behind with FP1 leader Miguel Oliveira taking third.

Thomas Luthi kept his championship fight alive with a fourth-fastest time, nearly four-tenths of a second ahead of points leader and title rival Franco Morbidelli (6th). The pair bracked fifth-fastest Xavi Vierge. Luca Marini (7th) leads a pack of riders who were a full second off the pace in the wet including Sandro Cortese (8th), Marcet Schrotter (9th) and Mattia Pasini (10th).

2017 Sepang MotoGP FP2: Dovizioso fastest, wet or dry

Andrea Dovizioso again led practice at the Sepang circuit in Malaysia Friday with a dominant showing on the wet, 5.5 km track. Dovizioso's 2'11.640 lap left him a half a second clear of championship rival and points leader Marc Marquez (2nd). Jorge Lorenzo seized the third-fastest time -- a mark that still left him a full second off his Ducati teammate's pace.

Dovizioso, who was fastest in three of the four sectors in FP2, must finish the race a minimum of nine points clear of Marquez to keep the championship fight going for the season's final round in three weeks. Maverick Vinales returned from an early-session collision with Hector Barbera to climb into fourth. Danilo Petrucci, typically fast in the wet, improved his postition to fifth, just two-hundredths of a second in front of Valentinio Rossi (6th). 

Alvaro Bautista continued a strong Friday practice with a seventh on his satellite Ducati after a third in FP1. Alex Rins (8th) ended his day as the top factory Suzuki, just in front of teammate Andrea Iannone (9th). Sam Lowes -- on the only Aprilia in the field after teammate Aleix Espargaro's injuries at Philip Island -- completed the top 10.
