Yet again, Sam Lowes starts from pole position in Moto2, taking back to back pole positions at the Teruel track.
Sam Lowes takes pole position and the all-time lap record at the Teruel round following back-to-back race wins at Le Mans and Aragon last weekend, his consistency in 2020 has been outstanding and has put on a real title challenge this season, he starts from pole whilst the title leader Enea Bastianini starts in P6.
Jorge Navarro was the second-placed man, finding form on the Speed Up, following his teammates’ footsteps with the Speed Up boys massively struggling in the first half of the season before turning it around with podiums from ‘Diggia’. Navarro crashed during the session is slowly gaining a reputation for being a crasher but crashed trying to get pole.
Remy Gardner takes yet another front row start, last time he did this was at Misano and crashed in the warm-up, taking him out of the race. If he can stay on it tomorrow morning, Gardner has a fight for the win on his hands that is a fact.
Fabio Di Giannantonio is incredibly fast around Aragon, he proved that last weekend leading the race before crashing due to missing his braking point by just 30cm, he is after his first Moto2 win, we are expecting a great race tomorrow, he starts ahead of Marcos Ramirez who is making huge strides each week, he takes P5 in qualifying and has adapted to Moto2 incredibly fast, not forgetting he did the CEV Moto2 class a few years ago also.
Title leader Enea Bastianini starts in sixth and will need a good few opening laps to be able to make some places up and stop Lowes getting away, Lowes just needs to outscore the Italian by just 2 points to take the title lead, therefore it will be imperative for Enea to start well.
Jake Dixon once again impresses starting in P7 ahead of rookie Hector Garzo, the pair also improving each round, it won’t be long until the pair are fighting for podiums.
Augusto Fernandez and Bo Bendsneyder finish the session in P9 and P10 with Bendsneyder coming from Q1 on the Japanese NTS machine to take P10, 0.650 from pole position.
Luca Marini needs to wake up from his nightmare and fast, from the title leader to P11 in qualifying, he will be desperate for a good start tomorrow to try and make up some points following from last weekends DNF.
