MotoE E-Pole: Another qualifying
We are not through with the qualifying sessions of this day, because the E-pole is still pending. In this class too, we have to complain about an injured person with Niki Tuuli. That is why only 17 drivers are fighting for pole here.
The training results are started in reverse order. Everyone has an outlap, a flying lap and an inlap. MotoE rookie Jakub Kornfeil was the first driver to complete his qualifying round.
Bezzecchi, who is still suffering from an ankle injury due to a motocross fall, shows himself emotionally after his pole in the Parc Ferme. He recalls his difficult time last year when he was still piloting a KTM and was not getting along at all. Now, in the team of Valentino Rossi, he has found his way to old strength. “You saved me,” says Bezzecchi.

Moto2 Q2: Premiere pole for Bezzecchi
The checkered flag is out and nothing changes in the top 3. Marco Bezzecchi from the VR46 team celebrates his first Moto2 pole with a time of 1: 41.728 minutes. He set the best time in his third lap. Lowes and Bastianini complete the first row, which Kalex claims.
Jorge Navarro’s speed-up improves to fourth place. Jorge Martin, fastest in the morning, is fifth, followed by Aron Canet at the Speed-up. Nicolo Bulega and the IntactGP duo Lüthi and Schrötter are on the third row.
Moto2 Q2: Lüthi with improvement
Lüthi has now increased to seventh place. Sam Lowes has also jumped forward and is now second. But we still see some personal improvements on the time monitor. The session is not over yet …
Moto2 Q2: Where is IntactGP?
Marcel Schrötter is eighth with five minutes to go, but still has to struggle with his Kalex. Fortunately, the German can intercept a ride into the gravel bed. However, we will probably no longer see him at the top of the classification today.
Meanwhile, Tom Lüthi is only in twelfth place. His gap to the top is a good half a second.
Moto2 Q2: Nagashima back again
After his violent fall in third free practice, Tetsuta Nagashima has struggled again and can compete in qualifying. He goes right back to the limit, but initially doesn’t matter in the top field. Here Marco Bezzecchi sets the tone in front of Enea Bastianini and Luca Marini.
Moto2 Q1: Schrötter makes it in Q2
Stefano Manzi can reduce the gap to Schrötter, but cannot displace him from P4. Nevertheless, the German looks anything but happy in the IntactGP box. With him, Bastianini, Vierge and Corsi move into the next round.
Manzi will start with his MV Agusta tomorrow from 19th on the grid. Somkiat Chantra, Jake Dixon and Hafizh Syharin line up behind him. Even further back are Moto3 world champions Lorenzo Dalla Porta (25th) and Joe Roberts (26th). The bottom of the list is Jesko Raffin, who is again two seconds behind with his NTS.
Moto2 Q1: The clock is ticking
There are only five minutes left in this session. The ranking is led by Enea Bastianini ahead of Xavi Vierge, Simone Corsi and Marcel Schrötter. These four are within 0.438 seconds. However, a final attack could upset the order again.
Moto2 Q1: Schrötter has to deliver
The first 15 minutes of Moto2 qualifying run and Marcel Schrötter is under pressure. He did not make it straight into Q2 as 20th overall. After the first flying laps, the German is in fourth place, so he is in the ejection seat.
MotoGP Q2: Rossi in row two
Valentino Rossi has created a good starting position with fourth on the grid. Miguel Oliveira is the fifth best KTM rider. Franco Morbidelli rounds off the second row.
Third row places go to Jack Miller, Takaaki Nakagami and Brad Binder.
MotoGP Q2: Pole for Quartararo
Fabio Quartararo is now also in the best starting position in the second Jerez race. The Frenchman clocked 1: 37.007 minutes, 0.095 seconds faster than Maverick Vinales.
Francesco Bagnaia follows in third behind the two Yamaha. For the first time in his MotoGP career, the Italian will attack from the front row.
MotoGP Q2: Pole lap for Vinales canceled
At the very last moment, Vinales pulls the fastest lap out of his hat, but because he comes out too far over the curb in turn 7, this lap time is canceled immediately.
MotoGP Q2: Rossi fourth
The “old master” accelerates and moves to fourth place in the second row. Oliveira is also attacking and is now the fifth best KTM rider.
MotoGP Q2: Pol Espargaro crash
The KTM rider follows Quartararo around the track, but turns 2 go wrong. Pol Espargaro falls and his qualifying is over. This is a disaster because it will start from outside the top 10.
MotoGP Q2: fastest lap Quartararo
After the pit stops, the second attempts run and Quartararo takes the lead with 1: 37.007 minutes.
