MotoGP – Czech Republic GP – Qualifying
After a long summer break, MotoGP is back to our screens with the second part of this exciting championship. The Brno Autodrom was the first race after this summer break and we just enjoyed the qualifying session.
Bautista and Miller were the first riders to finish on top after the first lap at Brno during the Q1. Bautista, Folger and Petrucci were the favorites to finish on top after this session but only two of them will go to Q2. Sam Lowes was the first rider to crash on turn 12. Half of the session done and now we have Folger and Petrucci on the first two positions, but everything can change on the last minutes. Bautista improved and reach the 2nd position while Pol Espargaro crashed, the chequered flag was shown and the riders were crossing the finish line. Petrucci and Bautista will go to Q2 with the lowest part of the grid completed with Rins, Folger, Miller, Barbera, Abraham, Pol Espargaro, Bradley Smith, Andrea Iannone, Tito Rabat, Sam Lowes and Scott Redding.
Time now for the big names. Q2 started and we after the first lap Pedrosa and Lorenzo finished on top while Marquez saved a possible crash with his shoulder, but in his second lap hw could make a lap between the two spaniards on top. With all the riders now on boxes, Lorenzo’s time was cancelled for exceeding track limits at turn 14, but the spaniard could take again the 3rd position but this will be hard because everyone was improving.
With the final minute to go, Marquez and Rossi finished on the first two positions but everyone had one more lap to go, except Aleix Espargaro who crashed his bike. Chequered flag and the pole will be for Marc Marquez.
Pole position for Marc Marquez who will have on the first row Valentino Rossi and Dani Pedrosa. The Q1 grid will be completed with Dovizioso, Crutchlow, Lorenzo, Viñales, Petrucci, Bautista, Zarco, Aleix and Baz.
Tomorrow we have a rain prediction and if this happen, the race can change completely. Stay tuned to know who will be the first winner for the second part of the championship.
