Quartararo secures pole for Le Mans Moto3™

 Quartararo secures pole for Le Mans Moto3™

The Estrella Galicia 0,0 rider’s 1:44.763 lap was enough to secure him the first position on the grid for this weekend’s Moto3 battle.

Joining Fabio on the front row are Jorge Navarro (Estrella Galicia 0,0) & Francesco Bagnaia (Mapfre Mahindra Aspar).

Brit rider Danny Kent, arguably one of the favourites for pole after wining the last 3 consecutive races & setting good pace in free Practice, had issues in the QP that will see him starting from 30th on the grid. Kent said that he left the box late in the session to avoid anybody getting a tow from him & in order to get a clean lap. Unfortunately his box exit coincided with it starting to rain and he was unable to post a competitive time.

Jakub Kornfeil (Drive M7 SIC) will start from fourth, with Romano Fenati (SKY Racing Team VR46) starting in fifth. Jules Danilo (Ongetta-Rivacold), Niccolò Antonelli (Ongetta-Rivacold), Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM Ajo), Isaac Viñales (Husqvarna Factory LaGlisse) & Tatsuki Suzuki (CIP) complete the top 10.

Karel Hanika (Red Bull KTM Ajo) qualified in 24th place, but he will be starting from the pit lane as a penalty for his actions at the Jerez GP.

The Moto3 action continues on May 17 at 08:40 local time with the warm up session, with the race to start at 11:00.
