Francesco Bagnaia took pole position for tomorrow’s San Marino Grand Prix after an impressive qualifying.
Qualifying 1 saw Enea Bastianini take the best time with a 1:31.876, four-tenths faster than Morbidelli in the first run.
Just before the end of the first run, Rossi crashed in turn 15 at high speed. However, nothing serious happened to the old master, and his Yamaha was taken away by the stewards. Binder also crashed shortly later in turn 2.
The second qualifying session saw Fabio Quartararo as the first fastest rider, setting P1 with a time of 1:31.367 minutes. He was three-tenths of a second ahead of Bagnaia. Martin sorted himself into third place in the meantime.
After that, there were some incidents in the final runs. Marc Marquez and Aleix Espargaro crashed almost one after the other, followed by Quartararo who crashed in second and had to stop his last lap.
Just before that, Bagnaia set a best new time of 1:31.065, and his teammate Jack Miller took second. Quartararo thus finished qualifying “only” in P3.
