2017 Mugello Moto2 Qualifying Result: Early Risks VS Late Laps

old_url: 

On a track hotter than a cup of tea when you’re most thirsty, it only took three laps for Alex Marquez to beat the best time of the weekend and last year’s pole time. Taking the risk early on seemed to be the right decision, his rivals struggling to match his time as the temperature went up. But never say never with Franco Morbidelli, the championship leader snatching pole position from his teammate after the checked flag came out waving.

Alex Marquez will have to settle for second on the grid for only three hundredths of a second, after struggling on the second tyre. Mattia Pasini probably owes Morbidelli a few beers after following him along on several occasions throughout the weekend, but the Italtrans rider can take full credit for his fastest lap, which secured him the final grid spot on the front row.

Tom Luthi looked to have made a step up after struggling in practice, the Swiss rider qualifying fourth. Takaaki Nakagami couldn’t quite equal what he showed in FP3 but a second row start still puts him in a good position in the fight for the podium. Luca Marini overcame his practice crash and will show off his brand new livery from sixth grid spot.

The third row will include two major improvers in Jorge Navarro and Lorenzo Baldassarri, as was as the KTM of Miguel Oliveira. After an impressive FP3, Simone Corsi could not do any better than tenth. Due to an early crash, Pecco Bagnaia did not get much track time to challenge for a top position and will have to start sixteenth.

2017 Mugello MotoGP Qualifying Result: Picking Up Where We Left Off

old_url: 

Despite the twenty-eight degrees, the MotoGP qualifying session took its time to heat up and give us a show. The final two minutes were when the timing sheets lighted up like a Christmas tree and gave us a rather predictable poleman in championship leader Maverick Viñales.

Home favourite Valentino Rossi did not seem very disappointed while pulling a wheelie after qualifying second, two tenths behind his young teammate and picking up the fight where we left off in Le Mans. The front row was completed by Andrea Dovizioso, bringing Ducati a front row start at their beloved circuit.

The second row brings more joy to the Italian factory, with Michelle Pirro in fourth position, in front of the two factory Hondas of Dani Pedrosa and Marc Marquez, the world champion getting a little stuck behind Johann Zarco and only saving a sixth grid position.

Jorge Lorenzo had tried a two-stop strategy which did not prove particularly good or bad, the Spaniard qualifying seventh and sharing the third row of the grid with an excellent Alvaro Bautista. Danilo Petrucci started the session strong by topping the timesheets and challenging everyone who briefly dared to take over the lead. He looked to be on for a front row start before his best time was cancelled for exceeding track limits – still, ninth place after crashing both his bikes in the morning and getting through Q1 isn’t too bad.

After a tow à la Marc Marquez to assist him in his Q2 bid, Tito Rabat helped himself with a lap behind Dani Pedrosa to get an honourable tenth grid position. With the confidence of a man who had just topped FP4, Zarco only did one single run to get out of Q1 successfully and save a tyre for Q2. The plan didn’t work out great in the end, the Frenchmen stuck in the middle of the fourth row. Aleix Espargaro crashed early into the session and qualified twelfth.

Cal Crutchlow missed Q2 by less than a tenth of a second and will start the race from thirteenth grid position, on the fifth row.

2017 Mugello MotoGP FP4 Result: Zarco Leads Rossi

old_url: 

While the fans were heating up like a piece of toast, from both the temperatures and seeing Valentino Rossi on top, the riders were trying on some interesting tyre combinations – from Zarco on his beloved soft front to Marquez, unusually, on the medium and Pedrosa, Rossi and Vinales on the hard.

With all the focus on race pace, it was Rossi who stayed on top up until the very last minute when Zarco blasted past to grab the limelight. Just as the Frenchman took over his lead, Rossi crashed out harmlessly in turn twelve.

Marc Marquez’s weekend was going a bit too calm for his liking as well, so he opened FP4 with two big saves and an equally noteworthy display of his dirt track talents through the gravel trap. That meant he did not post a significant time until the second half of the session and, once he switched to a hard front tyre, the world champion climbed into third.

Alvaro Bautista was once again mixing it with the factory boys in fourth position, followed by Michelle Pirro as the top factory Ducati and Jonas Folger’s Yamaha in sixth.

Andrea Dovizioso, Maverick Vinales and Jorge Lorenzo completed the top nine, although all three men were less than three tenths of a second down on Zarco, while the top seventeen was covered by one second.

2017 Mugello Moto3 Qualifying Result: Always Down To The Last Lap

old_url: 

While the temperatures were up from the morning practice session, qualifying started with a long wait for a slipstream and some heavy crashes early on. The story repeated in the final few minutes, when many riders were on the lookout for a fast man to tag to the back of, which left them with only one lap to make their case for pole position.

After trailing his teammate for much of the session, Jorge Martin had the best proposition and grabbed pole on a dramatic last lap. With plenty of penalties waiting to be applied to the current grid, as it stands, the Spaniard will share the front row with John McPhee, the Scotsman’s final lap saving him from the claws of the bottom half of the timesheets.

Morning leader Joan Mir had an eventful afternoon, the Spaniard high-siding in turn one and sliding down the tarmac towards turn two with bikes riding past. With his bike stuck on the wrong side of the track and no time posted, Mir was only able to rejoin in the final ten minutes. His last lap saw him make the jump from twenty-second to third, the world championship leader completing the front row of the grid.

Fabio Di Giannantonio looked set for pole after leading most of the session but a mistake on the vital last lap saw him drop to the second row of the grid. Just a few minutes after Mir, Nicolo Bulega had an even scarier crash in turn twelve while running third, the Italian having to stop for a medical check as he was already struggling with a back injury. He was deemed fit and the Sky VR6 team fixed the bike in time for one final push with three minutes remaining. The Italian didn’t improve on his time but it proved good enough for fifth. The second row was completed by a still impressive Juanfran Guevara.

Romano Fenati was slightly better placed before the final run but could only manage seventh place in the end, with Marcos Ramirez and Bo Bendsneyder adding some more KTMs to the mix in third row.

Aron Canet will start the race in fourteenth position, with Darryn Binder behind him, Enea Bastianini in seventeenth and, despite a good showing during the weekend, Tony Arbolino in twenty-second. At least until the penalties hit.

2017 Mugello Moto2 FP3 Result: Pasini Tastes Home Glory

old_url: 

The contenders that announced themselves on Friday were still on top on Saturday morning but with some other names than the EG 0,0 duo making the headlines. As the riders focused on race settings, there were very few changes throughout the top ten during the session.

Simone Corsi enjoyed some more time in the limelight by leading the session after the first run, with Takaaki Nakagami taking over mid-session. Italy got one back with Mattia Pasini following Franco Morbidelli around the track to grab top spot. Pasini improved even further on his own, being the first and only rider to break into the 1:51s and post the fastest time of the weekend.

Nakagami and Corsi kept second and third positions, followed by Franco Morbidelli almost three tenths down on Pasini. Alex Marquez was one of the few riders to not improve on his Friday benchmark, the Spaniard finishing fifth and half a second off the leader.

Xavi Vierge made a late jump into sixth, pushing back Axel Pons and Miguel Oliveira – both failing to improve as their rivals put it a quali run in the final minutes. The top ten was completed by Luca Marini and Tom Luthi, with Pecco Bagnaia close behind and over seven tenths off Pasini’s top time.

2017 Mugello MotoGP FP3 Result: Rossi Turns The Volume Up

old_url: 

Slightly lower temperatures on Saturday morning meant a tricky start for the MotoGP class, with Cal Crutchlow and Danilo Petrucci  tumbling in the gravel on their outlaps. It was a busy morning for Michelin as well, with riders putting on several different tyre combinations in search of the perfect race tyre.

In the cooler conditions, Aleix Espargaro only needed five laps to improve on Dovizioso’s best time from Friday, the Spaniard showing off Aprilia’s new engine on top of the timesheets for most of the session. But the last ten minutes were reserved, as usual, for a final try at top ten glory, which meant the end of Aleix’s reign.

Valentino Rossi was the first to mount a challenge but coming in two hundredths of a second short. The Italian veteran had another go after putting in a brand new rear for the final three minutes - this time the mission was successful, Rossi taking the lead by over three tenths of a second.

After not posting a fast lap on Friday, Marc Marquez was eager to ensure his top ten position and it briefly looked like he would top the timesheets. It wasn’t to be but the world champion secured second place, just ahead of the top Ducati – this time being Jorge Lorenzo’s turn to claim that honour, less than five hundredths of a second behind Marquez.

Alvaro Bautista showed good speed over one lap, the Spaniard grabbing fourth spot with a fast lap late into the session. Maverick Viñales also secured his Q2 presence, after an irritated nod directed at his teammate for getting in his way.

Sixth position went to an impressive Tito Rabat, who was also helped by a little tow from his pal Marc Marquez. Michelle Pirro is a more usual sight in Q2 on his wildcard outings so seventh place isn’t at all surprising. He led his teammate Andrea Dovizioso by a mere hundredth of a second.

Dani Pedrosa spent his morning outside of the top ten while working on race pace, firing in several red sectors to climb up the charts. He finished the session ninth and gesticulating at Karel Abraham, which might suggest he expected better.

Aleix Espargaro did not improve on his early time but it proved good enough to secure him the final Q2 ticket. Johann Zarco was the first under the line and will have to fight his way through Q1 with the likes of Crutchlow and Petrucci, who managed to crash both his bikes before the end of the session.

2017 Mugello Moto3 FP3 Result: Mir Leads The Usual Contenders

old_url: 

A clear blue sky and some fewer degrees were in store for Saturday morning, as the Moto3 class started the proceedings for qualifying day. The conditions meant that many riders took their time before improving on their Friday benchmarks.

Joan Mir’s position at the top of the standings was only challenged briefly by Jorge Martin but a healthy tow every now and again meant that he quickly recovered to top the session by little over a tenth. Nicolo Bulega appears to be a serious challenger this weekend, the Italian finishing the session second, with compatriot and FP1 leader Romano Fenati right in the mix in third.

John McPhee made a very late jump into fourth position, three tenths down on the leader, with Philipp Oettl just four hundredths of a second behind him.

Jorge Martin was the first rider of the day into the 1:57s but some soft tyres and lucky slipstreams meant that his advantage of over six tenths was quickly negated by his main rivals. He failed to improve on sixth position while waving away wishful slipstreamers late in the session but the Spaniard showed solid race pace in his first runs.

Friday leader Fabio Di Giannantonio had an anonymous morning until the very last laps, when he jumped into eighth position and right behind an improved Darryn Binder, who was much closer to what we expected from him after the last few races.
