#ValenciaGP: Moto2™ Warm Up

Sunday Guide

-.Alex Marquez (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) is on pole for the third time in 2017, all of which have been achieved at Spanish tracks, following poles in Jerez and Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. He won both of those races.

- Franco Morbidelli (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) starts from second place on the grid, which is his 14th front row start of the year. He is going for his ninth win of the year, which will equal the record for most wins in a single season in the Moto2™ class. That was achieved by Marc Marquez in 2012.

- Mattia Pasini (Italtrans Racing Team) starts from the front row for the 10th time in 2017. Pasini’s only podium finish in Valencia is in the 125cc class back in 2005 when he finished third.

- Heading the second row is Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM Ajo), who is aiming to win his third successive Moto2™ race. The last time a non-Kalex rider won three successive Moto2™ races was Marc Marquez on a Suter in 2012.

- Brad Binder (Red Bull KTM Ajo), who won the Moto3™ race at Valencia last year, starts from fifth place on the grid.

- Completing the second row is Dominique Aegerter (Kiefer Racing), who finished third in the Moto2™ race in Valencia back in 2011, which was his first podium finish in Grand Prix racing.
