Saturday’s Moto2™ QP session at the Gran Premio Movistar de Aragon, saw Maverick Viñales take pole, with Johann Zarco and Mika Kallio also on the front row.

The Moto3™ World Champion Viñales, a rookie in the intermediate class, got his first Moto2 pole with an impressive 1’54.073 lap. The young Spanish talent had also led FP3 earlier in the day and he will go in search of a second victory of 2104 on Sunday.

Behind Viñales the recently improved Zarco (AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing) took second place, with Kallio (Marc VDS Racing Team) in third.

Lining up in fourth place on the grid will be another rookie Franco Morbidelli (Italtrans Racing Team) who qualified 0.11s off pole. World Championship leader Tito Rabat (Marc VDS Racing Team) had provisional pole but crashed on his seventh lap and could not improve after that, ending up fifth on the grid, just ahead of Thomas Luthi (Interwetten Sitag).

Takaaki Nakagami (IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia), Dominique Aegerter (Technomag carXpert) and Sandro Cortese (Dynavolt Intact GP) are set to line up on row three, with Marcel Schrotter (Tech 3) heading the fourth row.

Jordi Torres (Mapfre Aspar Moto2) took an early tumble as he lost the front end of his Suter. Ratthapark Wilairot (Airasia Caterham) also fell but was unhurt and able to rejoin the session.
