Moto Gp, super Bagnaia on pole at the Aragon Grand Prix: three Ducati in front

Cars News

The Ducati red wall will open the starting grid again tomorrow at Aragon. Bagnaia, Miller and Bastianini the terrible trio that dominated the qualifications of the Spanish gp.
The masterpiece was made by Pecco, who stopping the clock at a time of 1’46 ”069 not only conquered the pole position, but also demolished the track record (which already belonged to him). It will be the fifth time for the Piedmontese to start in front of everyone this season: «I knew it would be essential to set the time on the first lap – he explained -. I risked in the second corner, but now I’m really happy ».

At the start, Bagnaia will have at his side his current teammate Miller and Bastianini, who will be from next year. «I’m happy, we did a good job – said Enea satisfied -. Pecco did a really good lap and I made a few mistakes too many, however I improved in qualifying and I was what I wanted ».

For Quartararo, seeing so many Ducatis in front is a problem for the race. The Yamaha Frenchman, as always, gave everything and more but the limits of his bike did not allow him to go beyond 6th place and will therefore start behind Aleix Espargaró on the Aprilia and Zarco, on another Red ( there are 4 in the top 5, 6 in the top 8). Good performance also for the rookie Marco Bezzecchi, 7th ahead of Martin, Rins, Brad Binder, Oliveira and Nakagami.

Marc Marquez, in his first GP after the arm surgery in June, was instead unlucky because a yellow flag took away the possibility of improving and he was unable to pass in Q2. Tomorrow he will start from the 13th box, in the fifth row, ahead of Luca Marini and Fabio Di Giannantonio. A crash, on the other hand, forced Maverick Viñales to 16th place, while Franco Morbidelli is 20th, behind Cal Crutchlow, who returned to racing to replace Dovizioso who retired at Misano.

Joan Mir left Aragon instead. The Suzuki rider was the victim of an accident in the Austrian gp, injuring his ankle. He tried to return to the home race, but his lack of sensitivity and pain forced him to forfeit. He will also miss the Japanese GP next Sunday, to try to get back on the saddle in Thailand.
