Grid statistics for lightweight class

These are the key facts for the leading riders on the Moto3™ grid at the Gran Premio d'Italia TIM.

- Jakub Kornfeil is in third place on the grid – his first front row start in what will be his 79th Grand Prix. This is the best qualifying result in any class of GP racing for a Czech rider since Lukas Pesek was in third place on the grid for the 125cc race at Phillip Island in 2007.

- Karel Hanika heads the third row of the grid – his best qualifying result so far in his debut season in Grand Prix racing. This is the first time that two Czech riders have qualified in the top seven places on the grid for a grand prix race since full records began in 1974.
