Marc Márquez was second in FP3 this morning and fastest in FP4.
In the qualifying session he used a two-stop strategy, although he was not able to improve on the time set on his first flying lap: 1:36.970.
Lorenzo was tenth in FP3 and 14th in FP4. In Q2, a crash at Turn 2 prevented him from lowering his lap time and he would place eleventh.
Spanish GP 2019 - Q2 - Marc Márquez and Jorge Lorenzo statements
Well prepared. I’m very happy for the front row, normally here we struggle a bit more to put one fast lap together. The most important part is that we have prepared well for the race and tomorrow we can understand our level compared to everyone else’s. We have to wait a little bit to see what the temperature does tomorrow.
Good race. Congratulations to Fabio Quartararo who took the record of youngest pole setter from me, he did a really good job today. Tomorrow it will be a good race with a mix of names at the front.
Potential The session was going quite well, I pushed quite a lot in the first run and then in the second run I tried to be more aggressive in braking. Unfortunately I closed the front and then crashed, luckily I am not hurt. Starting in the fourth row isn’t ideal but it is where we will start.
Ready for tomorrow.The launch from the line will be important to keep our position, as everyone is very fast. Here we are closer than ever to the front.
