Malaysian Qualifying results

Pole and circuit record for Bagnaia, crash for Martín.

The reigning World Champion set the fastest time of the day on his final lap of the qualifying session, beating the circuit record. He did so by 58 thousandths of a second faster than Jorge Martín, his main rival in the fight for the title, who had been the fastest until a crash at turn four in the closing stages of the session prevented him from improving further. Third on the front row of the grid will be Enea Bastianini.

The second row will be occupied by three other Ducati riders: Álex Márquez, Luca Marini and Marco Bezzecchi. Behind them, Brad Binder, Fabio Quartararo, Maverick Viñales and Jack Miller completed the top ten positions in today’s Q2.

Difficult day for Mir, sixteenth, and Márquez, twentieth after a fall

The second day of practice for the Malaysian Grand Prix started with Marc Márquez making a step forward in FP2, finishing eighth, with Joan Mir nineteenth.

In Q1, Joan Mir finished sixth and will occupy sixteenth position on the grid for both today’s sprint race and tomorrow’s long race. On the other side of the Repsol Honda pit box, Marc Márquez was unable to finish higher than twentieth. A crash while trying to overtake a rival at turn 7 on what was his last attempt at a hot lap, prevented him from improving his lap times and he finished the session tenth, twentieth on the starting grid.

The sprint race in Malaysia will start in just a few hours: at 8:00 (CET) – 15:00 (local time).
