At the end of a fantastic last flying lap with Marc Marquez and Valentino Rossi, Jack Miller conquers his third “front row” of the season and tomorrow will start from P3. The Australian, that qualified directly to Q2, has put in place a perfect strategy and found himself fighting for pole position with Marquez and Rossi closing the third sector with the hypothetical P2.
It was a difficult Saturday for Francesco Bagnaia who, after the encouraging sensations of the FP4, didn’t manage to find the right feeling with the soft tyre in Q1 and tomorrow will start from 18th position.
P18 – Pecco Bagnaia
The feelings were positive. Also in FP4 I was able to lap strong with the hard tyre at the rear. In the Q1 with the soft tyre, however, I had no feeling at all. I pushed to the limit but I risked to crash at least three times. We have to work with the data to understand what happened.
P3 – Jack Miller
That was a really good qualifying. I am very satisfied with this result. It was a nice duel with Valentino and Marc. I probably had the best position to try and get pole position but I made a couple of small mistakes. I think we can have a good race tomorrow even though the competition is big.
