Moto3™ race guide for the #SpanishGP

Moto3™ race guide for the #SpanishGP

All of the essential stats and information any fan needs to know ahead of the Gran Premio bwin de España.

The Moto3™ race at the Circuito de Jerez consists of 23 laps around the 4.4 km circuit, and is due to start at 11:00 local time:

  • Fabio Quartararo starts from pole for the first time, in only his fourth grand prix appearance. At the age of 16 years 13 days he is the second youngest rider of all-time to start a grand prix race from pole position, after Marco Melandri who started the 125cc race at the Sachsenring from pole in 1998 at the age of 15 years 346 days. If Quartararo wins the race he will become the youngest rider ever to win a grand prix race from pole position, taking the record from Maverick Viñales.

  • Danny Kent is on the front row for the third successive race. Kent is aiming to become the first British rider in any of the grand prix classes to win three successive races since Barry Sheene in the 500cc class in 1977.

  • In third place on the grid is Miguel Oliveira; his third successive front row start. Oliveira has had four career podium finishes but is still aiming to become the first Portuguese rider to win a grand prix.

  • Brad Binder, who finished 4th at Jerez two years ago, heads the second row of the grid equalling his best qualifying result in grand prix racing.

  • In fifth place on the grid is Phillip Oettl, which is his best qualifying result since the Aragon GP of 2013 when he was 4th fastest qualifier.
