Andrea Migno takes pole position in Moto3 as the lightweight class play games again.
Andrea Migno takes just his second career pole position in the Moto3 class at a hectic Portimao, having the fastest time in the session absolutely was not enough for Migno who decided to improve on this to consolidate his pole position in the class, starting tomorrow’s race from the front in his third ever Honda race.
These results are subject to change as it is more than likely we are going to see a stewards review of the session after Romano Fenati’s hot lap was completely destroyed by slow riders dawdling on the racing line yet again, the Moto3 class still are playing games on track and it is only a matter of time before there is a massive crash with a fast rider colliding into a pack of slow riders. There is every chance we are going to see many Moto3 riders joining McPhee and Alcoba starting from the pit lane, the duo starting from the pits after fighting on the outside of turn 1 at Qatar.
Dennis Foggia joins his compatriot Andrea Migno on the front row, Foggia taking a podium here last year and knows he has enough in him to battle for the race win. Jeremy Alcoba is the third rider on the front row, obviously he will start from pit lane as previously mentioned meaning every rider behind him will be promoted by one place.
Heading the second row is Sergio Garcia, Garcia has massively enjoyed the change to the Gas Gas this season and has impressed many with his P2 start in Doha and a P4 here in Portimao, he is absolutely in with a chance of the win tomorrow, joining him is Gabriel Rodrigo who suffered a late crash after colliding with Filip Salac. John McPhee also has qualified on the second row but will start from the pit lane meaning every rider behind him gains two places.
It is a great start for Deniz Oncu in P7, he has struggled this year with various unnecessary crashes and needless mistakes and will be desperately hoping he can cut these out and bring home a solid result, joining him on the second row is Darryn Binder and Xavier Artigas who was the fastest rookie in qualifying, Artigas had a bad Qatar taking a DNF in both races but is a proven competitor following his debut podium at Valencia 2019.
It’s a Red Bull KTM trio on row 3 with Ayumu Sasaki on the Tech3 heading the two Ajo boys as championship leader Pedro Acosta starts from P12.
