Czech rider Lukas Pesek topped the leaderboard in the 125cc category's first qualifying session of the season, with a fastest lap of 1'48.710 in the opening GP betandwin.com de España session. The Derbi Racing man finished ahead of Alvaro Bautista and the morning sessions fastest rider Julian Simon. Tomoyoshi Koyama completes the potential front row.

"I am very happy with this current position, but I'm well aware that it is only provisional and that nothing can be celebrated right now. The results of the previous tests have given me a lot of confidence and useful information, the bike and team are at a good level and I can concentrate on getting the best out of my riding," explained Pesek.

Mattia Pasini, fastest at the final test of the preseason at the Andalusian track, headed a host of title contenders. Mika Kallio, Gabor Talmacsi, Sergio Gadea and Aleix Espargaro were all in the top ten, with reigning World Champion Thomas Luthi completing the top ten.
