Infamous classification of MotoGP it was lived at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia. Weather conditions were critical to the performance of the pilots. The qualifying test started very early after a torrential rain in which the different configurations of the bikes were affected by the complicated Spanish line. Pol Espargaró he was the one who best took advantage of the poor performance of the majority.
Surprisingly, Pol Espargaró took the fastest lap of the morning and took the pole position. The changing track conditions helped the Spaniard manage to secure pole position for KTM and the top of the grid. Espargaró was the one who best took advantage of the different settings and tightened at the right time.
To the joy of the championship leader, Alex Rins had a great day and left Suzuki with the second place of the classification. The difference between first and second was minimal. Rin was less than a tenth of Espargaró and tomorrow will have the chance to help Joan Mir in the championship. However, they have already clarified that there will be no team orders for the drivers.
To close the first row of the race grid, third place was Takaaki nakagami. The Japanese once again showed that he is up for great things. After the pole in Aragon, today he was very close to the fastest. Like Rins, Nakagami was less than a tenth of the poleman, and tomorrow he will seek his first victory in the category.
