MotoGP – Johann Zarco takes pole, Fabio Quartararo fourth ahead of Bagnaia and A. Espargaro

Johann Zarco seized the opportunity. While Aleix Espargaro suffered a violent fall during the last practice session and Fabio Quartararo will have to perform a “long lap” in the race, whoever follows these two drivers in the championship has taken pole position in the Grand Great Britain Prize, this Saturday at Silverstone. The Frenchman was ahead of Maverick Vinales (Aprilia) and Jack Miller (Ducati).

Quartararo, who absolutely had to pass his qualification so as not to end up in traffic when serving his penalty on Sunday, had to settle for fourth place, 171 thousandths from the reference established by his compatriot, in 1’57 “767 , a new track record. The reigning world champion had chosen to start relatively early for his second stint, in order to escape the opportunists. He was therefore unable to take advantage of the improvement in the track.

Small consolation for the leader of the World Cup: he is ahead on the second row of two of his main rivals for the crown, namely Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati), relegated to 0″194, but also Aleix Espargaro. The Aprilia rider, sixth to 0″ 199, managed a heroic performance by riding with very severe pain since he suffered a violent highside during the previous session. Before the truce, in Assen, the Spaniard had already demonstrated that he had resources.
