MotoGp in Austria: pole and track record for Jorge Martin, then Quartararo and Bagnaia

by admin

Perfection may not exist, but Jorge Martin today came very close to achieving it today. The Spaniard of the Pramac team managed to get his second consecutive pole position at the Red Bull Ring, where he had won last Sunday, and also to touch up the circuit record. Now the new record is 1’22 ”643 and bears his signature. «I always work well under pressure and today it was like that – explained the Spaniard, who had even had to pass from Q1 -. Today I was able to regain a confidence in braking that I had lost. I was also impressed with this lap: I love this bike and I’m happy ».

Thus the pole escaped Fabio Quartararo (also under the previous record) who, however, can be happy, but not entirely, to have put his Yamaha in front of the Ducati favorites on this circuit. «It was a shame, because I found some riders waiting in the middle of the track – the Frenchman complained -. I am a bit disappointed, even if I am starting from an excellent position for tomorrow’s race ».

In third place is Pecco Bagnaia, on the flying lap the Piedmontese was not at the level of the two rivals: «pole position would have been better, but I had problems with the rear tire once again – he recalled the troubles encountered on Sunday last – The good news is to be on the front row, but my pace in anticipation of the race is fast ». The good news for Ducati continues with Zarco’s 4th place and Miller’s 6th place, while Marquez is among them thanks to the 5th fastest time.

Opening the third row, on the other hand, will be Miri on the Suzuki, ahead of Aleix Espargaró’s Aprilia and Oliveira’s KTM, which in turn preceded his teammate Binder and the Hondas of Pol Espargaró and Nakagami. Further back (in 15th position) Bastianini, while Marini is 17th and precedes his brother Valentino Rossi and Danilo Petrucci.
