#SpanishGP: Moto3™ Sunday Guide

Lightweight class geekery ahead of the race

- Jorge Martín (Del Conca Gresini Moto3) has qualified on pole position for the second time in his career. This is the 34th pole position for a Spanish rider in Moto3™ and he will be aiming to win his first race.

- Arón Canet (Estrella Galicia 0,0) will start from second on the grid and after his pole in Austin he has scored back-to-back front row starts for the first time.

- Romano Fenati (Marinelli Rivacold Snipers) is in third place on the grid, which equals his best qualifying result this year. He has won two times in the past in Jerez (2012 and 2014) and can also become the first Moto3™ rider to win three races on the same track. With eight wins, he can tie Luis Salom’s record of nine victories.

- For the second race in succession, Honda has taken all the places on the front row of the grid. It is the first the Japanese manufacturer has achieved this in the Moto3™ class.

- Heading the second row is Nicolò Bulega (Sky Racing Team VR46), who was on pole last year and crossed the line in second, which is his best result so far in his GP career.

- Marcos Ramirez (Platinum Bay Real Estate) will start from fifth, which is his best qualifying result in 14 starts.

- Tatsuki Suzuki (SIC58 Squadra Corse) will head the third row, which is his best qualifying result and the best for a Japanese rider since Hiroki Ono qualified in third at Valencia last year.

- John McPhee (British Talent Team) has qualified in 26th (and will start from 25th as Südmetall Schedl GP Racing's Philipp Öttl is unfit), which is his worst qualifying result since Misano last year.
