Anonim

Concluded the timed training of the Australian Grand Prix of the MotoGP World Championship, we already know who will start tomorrow from the front row in each of the categories. How could it be otherwise, in MotoGP Casey stoner (Repsol Honda Team) has once again set the best time and everything seems to indicate that it will win. In Moto3, Sandro Cortese (Red Bull KTM Ajo) seems willing to make true his words after taking the championship in which he said he planned to win the next two races. Finally in Moto2, Pol Espargaro he has taken the third consecutive pole.

Moto3: Sandro Cortese and Jonas Folger, duel of Germans

Sandro Cortese

Like yesterday the Moto2 practice, today the Moto3 timed have been a bit lackluster after the rain made an appearance in the absence of 15 minutes from the end and gave us a closer battle to get pole. Until that moment the fastest had been Sandro Cortese with a time of 1'38.334, achieved a little before the rain and that improved Jonas folger (Mapfre Aspar Team Moto3), first until then.

Efren Vazquez (JHK t-shirt Laglisse) achieved the third best time but already eight tenths behind the German while the following Spaniard has been Maverick Viñales (Blusens Avintia) but already more than a second apart. Luis Salom (RW Racing GP), ninth, has been very close to his compatriot ready to fight for the runner-up tomorrow.

MotoGP: Casey Stoner ready to reign for the sixth time

Interview

Pole for the australian Casey stoner that although he has had a mid-session crash, it has not prevented him from marking a beastly record of 1'29,623 that left more than half a second to Jorge Lorenzo (Yamaha Factory Racing) and almost a second to his teammate Dani pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team), affected by the fine rain that fell at the end of the session.

The fall of Casey Stoner was caused by an excess of retention in the rear tire and according to what he was telling Dani Pedrosa in the parc fermé a somewhat tense situation arose with Marcos Rocha, who directly plugged in the microphone and he turned around saying that it had been a rude gesture (not polite according to his words). The truth is that it is not to defend Casey far from it but his answer was a bit abrupt, I imagine he understood that he was cutting off his conversation with Dani to ask him the question.

On the other hand, I don't know if it was necessary to put the microphone in the middle since the conversation could be heard perfectly and that is how Keko was able to translate it from the booth. Of course, Mela took the opportunity to drop a pair of Australian pearls that were irrelevant, the account so that then wonder why Casey is sometimes rougher than a scouring pad with journalists.

Several groups close behind, for example Cal Crutchlow and Stefan Bradl. Although the best is Randy de Puniet what did he get best result for a CRT in classification, ninth, beating Nicky Hayden, Karel Abrahan and Héctor Barberá and remaining six thousandths behind Valentino Rossi. He almost ate all four Ducati.

Kris mclaren (Avintia Blusens), wild car in this race, has hit a good stick at the beginning of the session although she is out of 107% and she only has tomorrow's warp up to try to qualify.

Moto2: Pol Espargaró wants to hold the title until Valencia

Pol Espargaro

And it's going to be difficult but Pol Espargaro He is trying by all means and this is attested by the fact that with this he already has three consecutive poles. The time of 1'33.705 was more than half a second better than that of Scott redding, very active all workouts while Marc Márquez closes the first line to seven tenths of Pol.

Again the rain appeared for the third time that day at the end of training sessions to annoy those who had not done their homework and left everything to the last minute. Tito Rabat has been the third best classified in tenth place while Áxel Pons It seems that he has been putting the batteries lately and will come out thirteenth.
