Miller on pole at the Brickyard

Jack Miller secured top spot in qualifying for the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix ahead of Efren Vazquez and Alex Marquez as Moto3™ builds up to the first race on the new layout.

Miller (Red Bull KTM Ajo) put in a 1’40.727 around the modified Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s Grand Prix layout to secure his sixth pole of the year. Miller came away unscathed from an FP3 crash as he found his limit earlier in the day.

Vazquez (SAXOPRINT RTG) lines up second on the grid having earlier been the fastest rider in FP3. Marquez (Estrella Galicia 0,0) completed row one just 0.001s behind Vazquez who himself was only 0.08s off Miller’s pace.

Romano Fenati (SKY Racing Team VR46) qualified fourth after having a lap cancelled for exceeding the track limits early in QP. Row two will also feature Juanfran Guevara (Mapfre Aspar Team Moto3) and notably Jorge Navarro (Marc VDS Racing Team) as he comes in to replace Livio Loi.

John McPhee (SAXOPRINT RTG), Francesco Bagnaia (SKY Racing Team VR46) and Alessandro Tonucci (CIP Mahindra) complete the third row, whilst Karel Hanika (Red Bull KTM Ajo) was 10th and Alex Rins (Estrella Galicia 0,0) was 12th.

Alexis Masbou (Ongetta-Rivacold) survived an early crash in qualifying after technical problems in FP3 and qualified 11th. Zulfahmi Khairuddin (Ongetta-AirAsia) ended the session with a highside but was not seriously hurt and will line up 15th on the grid.
