MotoGP Assen: Bagnaia fastest in extremely close Moto2 qualifying

Pecco Bagnaia claimed his second pole position of the season after the session was red flagged in the final minutes after a nasty crash that left Nikki Tuuli injured in the middle of the track.

Bagnaia’s early lap time of a 1:37.608 was good enough to earn him his pole position with nobody improving to get ahead of the World Championship leader on his Sky Racing VR46 Kalex bike.

Marcel Schrotter fresh on the back of his new two-year deal with the Dynavolt team will start from second position and Luca Marini on the second Sky Racing VR46 bike rounding out the front row.


Alex Marquez will have to brush off a fast crash through turn seven in the final stages of the session after losing the front end of his Estrella Galicia 0,0 bike to start from fourth position, just 0.160 off of Bagnaia’s time after an impressive long run early in the session.

Xavi Vierge will start from the middle of the second row with Sam Lowes on the outside of the second row in sixth position. The Brit has looked fast and consistent all weekend and should stay with the leaders in tomorrows race.

Barcelona Moto2 winner Fabio Quartararo will start from seventh position. The Frenchman will be joined on the second row by Andrea Locatelli and Jorge Navarro who will start in eighth and ninth respectively with the Spaniard suffering a nasty crash himself. 

MotoGP bound Joan Mir will head the fourth row from Mattia Pasini and Khairul Pawi with the top twelve all within 0.332 seconds of Bagnaia's fastest time of the session.

The red flags were bought out after Tuuli lost the front end and came off of his SIC Racing Kalex and was down injured in the middle of the track at turn five. After being helped off the circuit the session resumed with Tuuli looking relatively okay.
