SHILLONG, March 19: For the first time since the 2021 Catalan GP, Fabio Quartararo will start a MotoGP race from pole position after an incredibly dramatic Pertamina Grand Prix of Indonesia plays out.
Jorge Martin and Pramac Racing teammate Johann Zarco will start from P2 and P3, but eight-time World Champion Marc Marquez, Repsol Honda teammate Pol Espargaro and Joan Mir (Team Suzuki Ecstar) failed to make it out of a spectacular Q1.
There was late movement on the timesheets. Zarco, Brad Binder (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) and Bastianini all put in their personal best times on the last lap to go P3, P4, and P5 respectively, pushing Pecco down to P6. No one was able to beat Quartararo though, the Frenchman took his first pole since the 2021 Catalan GP.
MotoGP 2022 of Indonesia Main Race will be live on EuroSport and EuroSport HD from 9:15 am IST onwards on Sunday.
