Incredible classification that we have experienced in the Grand Prix of the Czech Republic of MotoGP. Yes, the Ducati are doing well in Brno, but not what we expected. Johann Zarco will start from pole position with a time of 1: 55.687. The Frenchman surprised with a great lap that Fabio Quartararo was unable to beat.
The World Cup leader has tried everything. He wanted to stay with third pole but he crashed on the last lap. Quartararo was already a little slower than Zarco's time, so has forced more than necessary and has fallen. In any case, Quartararo will start second, completing the French double in Brno.
Andrea Dovizioso failed in Q1 and will start eighteenth
The first row of the grid is completed by Franco Morbidelli, the other pilot of the Petronas, completing the triplet of satellite motorcycles. Attention to the Italian, because he is having a very strong rhythm all weekend. Brno could be the scene of his first podium as a MotoGP rider and who knows what else.
And if the positive side are Zarco and Petronas, shadows loom over Andrea Dovizioso. World runner-up conveys alarming apathy. Not only is it that he was unable to go to Q2, but he finished eighth in Q1, which will make him start eighteenth, out of 21, in tomorrow's race. An absurdity, even more so when there is a Ducati on pole.
Dovizioso was only ahead of three drivers. Bradley Smith, the Aprilia tester, who crashed in the early stages of Q1, and the two Repsol Hondas. The official team of the brand with the golden wing has bottomed out in the Brno standings, with Stefan Bradl penultimate and Álex Márquez in last position.
But the surprises do not finish here, Because leading the second row, and As the first motorcycle that is not a satellite, there is Aleix Espargaró with the Aprilia. The Spanish rider has come to dream of his third pole in MotoGP, although he did the slipstream lap of Quartararo. Still, Noale's bike in Brno is quite strong.
Maverick Viñales will leave fifth, a bit disappointing, and just behind Pol Espargaró, who was invalidated at the last minute by a lap that would have put him in the front row. The KTM rider will have options to fight for the podium, because his race pace is quite good. Valentino Rossi will start tenth.
Quite disappointing again the role of the Suzuki. Although they have rhythm, after one lap they are unable to get performance, something that also happened to them in 2019. Joan Mir will start ninth and Álex Rins eleventh, so it will be time to come back again. The best Honda, Cal Crutchlow, will start twelfth. Also in Q2 were Brad Binder, seventh, and Danilo Petrucci, eighth.
The Marquez have done it again. The youngest of the saga has traced the strategy of his brother and has taken pole position getting the fastest lap
