San Marino 125cc grid stats

San Marino 125cc grid stats

A close-up look at the 125cc grid at the Gran Premio Cinzano di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini.

- Gabor Talmacsi starts from pole for the third successive race. Talmacsi has only won once from his eight previous career pole positions – at the German Grand Prix last year.

- Bradley Smith starts from the front row for the eighth time in 2008. He will be aiming to finish on the podium for the first time since he was second at the French Grand Prix.

- Pol Espargaro starts from the front row for the third time in 2008. His two podium finishes this year have come from his two previous front row starts.

- The last time that two brothers both started from the front row in two different classes at the same Grand Prix was at the Brazillian Grand Prix in Rio in 1996 when Nobuatsu Aoki was on the front row for the 250cc race and his brother Haruchika was on pole in the 125cc class.

- Scott Redding starts from the front row for the fourth time. Redding could become the youngest ever rider to have two podium finishes in Grand Prix racing.

- Simone Corsi has equalled his qualifying position at Misano last year when he failed to finish in the points after crashing on lap 22 after colliding with Hector Faubel.

- Mike di Meglio's thirteenth place finish last year at the Gran Premio di San Marino e Della Riviera di Rimini was his best result of 2007 in a GP run in fully dry conditions. Di Meglio is the only rider in the 125cc class to have scored points in every race this year.

- Stefan Bradl, who will start from 11th on the grid, had his first Grand Prix win two weeks ago at Brno after qualifying in 13th place.

- Italian wild-card rider Riccardo Moretti will be starting from 16th place on the grid – the best qualifying performance in the 125cc class by a Honda rider this year.
