- Rodrigo will be aiming to become the first Argentinean rider to stand on the podium in the lightweight class since Willy Perez finished third at Spa in 1986. No rider from Argentina has ever won a race in the lightweightclass of Grand Prix racing.

- This is the first pole position from a KTM rider this year and the first since Brad Binder in Sepang 2016.

- Marinelli Rivacold Snipers rider Romano Fenati qualified in second, his fifth front row start of the season and his best qualifying result since he was on pole in Mugello last year.
