Pecco Bagnaia took pole position in the Japanese GP with a spectacular time of 1: 50.759 achieved when there was still more than half an hour to go to the end of the session and that nobody could overcome. It is the sixth pole of the season for the Italian rider, who arrives 28 points ahead and intends to take another step towards the title.
The first row will be completed by Fabio Quartararo and Iker Lecuona. Two riders who were second and third for practically the entire session, with the Spanish ahead of the French. However, in the last bars Quartararo has surpassed Lecuona's time and has relegated him to third place.
The classifications are not the strong point of Miguel Oliveira
Marcel schrotter that had not been seen by the first positions got the fourth fastest time in the final minutes, which will allow him to lead the second row of the grid where Lorenzo Baldassarri and Álex Márquez will start. The Spaniard comes out sixth and is injured after a shocking fall he suffered yesterday in the rain.
Xavi Vierge, Tetsuta Nagashima and Miguel Oliveira will occupy the third row grill. The standings are still not the stronghold of the Portuguese who is playing the title against Bagnaia and whose bad days of practice are taking their toll in the fight for the Moto2 title.
Oliveira has been going quite far from pole all season, although one of his specialties is the comeback, he has not always succeeded and has taken its toll on the title. In the last four races he has finished behind Bagnaia and already he does not depend on himself to be world champion in 2018.
The only fall of the session was carried out by Augusto Fernández that after the third position in which the day ended on Friday he trusted to be able to fight with the leading group. However, by going to the ground three minutes to go, the plans for the Spaniard, who will finally start 12th, have been complicated.
Iker Lecuona will be the Spaniard who later comes outThe next will be Álex Márquez in 6th position. Joan Mir will be 14th just ahead of Jorge Navarro, Edgar Pons was 22nd and finally Isaac Viñales will start from 29th on the grid.
