MotoGP Czech Republic 2012: Maverick Viñales, Jorge Lorenzo and Pol Espargaró get the poles in Brno

We already have the three drivers who will start tomorrow from the most privileged position in the races of Brno. We are already in appointment number twelve on the calendar, and things are beginning to take on very definite tints, but in the end those who are at the top are the usual ones, the ones we have been looking at all year for those positions. Thus, in the Grand Prix of the Czech Republic, Maverick Viñales will go out with pole in Moto3, Jorge Lorenzo on MotoGP and Pol Espargaro on Moto2. The three fighting for titles that one has much better than the other two.

Fortunately, the weather has not been the protagonist of today. And that when they connected this morning, and seeing the black clouds that hung over Brno, we expected the worst. Last night it was when it rained very hard, but throughout all the training sessions, and except for a few isolated drops, it has remained. Returning to what interests us, we have seen a little of everything as almost always: the fight of the candidates for the title, some fall with injury included or the announcement of signings and future plans. So let's not waste time and start with Moto3.

Moto3: Maverick Viñales leaves the skin in the fight with Sandro Cortese

Maverick Viñales in Brno

It is true that the Moto3 category is tremendously spectacular, in fact for me it is the one that is giving us the best races this year, which does not mean that the championship is clearly a matter of two: Sandro Cortese and Maverick Viñales. Well, seeing how strong the German is, our Maverick is going to have to sweat a lot if he wants to get the title. And that's just what he did today. After Sandro was the fastest this morning in FP3, Viñales has marked an impressive time to get pole, he specifically stopped the clock at 2'08.075. However, right in the last second, Cortese was about to steal his wallet, something that luckily he has not achieved for only 33 thousandths. Maverick will come out first and Sandro second, with a Zulfahmi Khairuddin who will complete the first line with his third square.

Already in the second row we find Niccolo Antonelli in fourth position, fifth Luis Salom, who surely wants to continue on the path of triumph that began last week in Indianapolis, and a surprising Hector Faubel in the sixth. Incredible position that this boy has achieved considering that a week ago he was in a hospital after the very hard fall that gave us all the creeps. There is no choice but to repeat that these guys are of a different kind. The local driver will start seventh in the third row Jakub Kornfeil, followed by an excellent Alex Rins eighth and Danny Kent nineth. Close the top ten Jonas Folger, something more subdued than last week and yesterday.

In the falls section, it is true that we have seen a good handful of them between FP3 and QP, although without a doubt the worst stopped in the category has been Isaac Viñales, that he has suffered a broken ankle that will cause him to miss the race. Also they have gone through the floor in the present day Rins, Alex Marquez (2 times), Alberto moncayo or Romano Fenati. While the one that has left us the worst body has been that of Brad binder and Giulian Pedone, fortunately without serious consequences finally.
