MotoGP | Last race of the season and for Rossi: Jorge Martin takes pole for the Valencia GP
Pramac Racing rider Jorge Martin will start at the front at the Valencia GP, for MotoGP, in what is the last race of the season, and for Valentino Rossi, who is retiring.
With a time of 1:29,936, Martin was just 0.064s faster than second-placed Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo Team), but enough to score his fourth pole in his rookie season. The first row was all from Ducati, as Jack Miller took third.
The second row has two Suzuki, separated by another Ducati: Joan Mir (Team Suzuki Ecstar) is fourth, Johann Zarco (Pramac Racing) is fifth and Alex Rins (Team Suzuki Ecstar) is sixth.
Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Brad Binder opens the third row in seventh, with champion Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) at his side in eighth and Takaaki Nakagami (LCR Honda Idemitsu) in ninth.
In his last qualifying of his career, nine-time World Champion Valentino Rossi (Petronas Yamaha SRT) did a great job and took tenth place. At his side, Franco Morbidelli (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) and Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing Team Gresini) complete the top twelve.
Anyway, the Valencia GP race for MotoGP takes place this Sunday, November 13, at 2pm local time (GMT+1).
