MotoGP: Quartararo Takes Jerez Pole Position Ahead Of Morbidelli

Fabio Quartararo recorded his second pole position of the season after setting the fastest time in Jerez ahead of former teammate Franco Morbidelli.

The 21-year-old continued his quest for his third win of the season after dominating the last two race in Qatar and Portimao.

Now leading the championship with 61 points, Quartararo set the best lap of the weekend with 1 minute 36.755s improving his already impressive 1m 36.8s earlier in Q2.

It was an exciting battle for pole as Quartararo had to battle it out with Morbidelli, who advanced from Q1.

Ducati’s Jack Miller complete the front row after edging out teammate Francesco Bagnaia.

This is the Australian first front-row start of the season in an effort to grab his first podium after three rounds despite showing amazing speed during the pre-season test.

Takaaki Nakagami was the surprise package this weekend after clinching P5, making him the fastest Honda rider on the RC213V ahead of Marc Marquez and Alex Marquez, who will start at P13 and P14, respectively.
