Romano Fenati takes his first Moto3 pole in four years in Austria.
Romano Fenati stormed his way to pole position in Moto3, robbing the P1 from the hands of a helpless Tatsuki Suzuki who was forced to watch from the sidelines following another reckless move from Gabriel Rodrigo which could now see him suspended from the Austrian Grand Prix. Suzuki was on a lap which would’ve improved his fastest lap and could’ve handed him pole position before Rodrigo clattered into him, fortunately for Suzuki his banker lap was quick enough to give him second place on the grid for tomorrow’s race behind Romano Fenati.
In third place was Jeremy Alcoba who picks up yet another front row start on the Gresini Honda, the Spanish rider hugely linked to a move up to Moto2 for 2022 now and it’s not surprising given his results and his height and build.
From fourth place to seventh we saw a Red Bull KTM quad with all four Red Bull KTM riders starting from the second row and the front of row three, Jaume Masia was the fastest of them all leading the Tech3 duo of Deniz Oncu then Ayumu Sasaki, Oncu benefitting from some support this weekend with both Kenan Sofuglu and Toprak Razgatlioglu watching from the sidelines.
Pedro Acosta opened up row three ahead of the potentially disqualified Gabriel Rodrigo then Dennis Foggia as Stefano Nepa took P10 despite coming from Q1.
FP3’s fastest rider Izan Guevara will start from row four, a strong result from the rookie rider leading Riccardo Rossi.
