Johann Zarco, a Pramac Racing Ducati rider in MotoGP, will start at the front in the German GP. The Frenchman took pole by just 0.011s off second place, Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP).
With Zarco’s 1:20.236s time, it is the first pole of a Ducati motorcycle at the Sachsenring since 2008 with Casey Stoner. Next to him, in the front row, starts Quartararo in second and, surprisingly, Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing Team Gresini) in third.
Aleix secured his first row since Assen in 2015 and gave Aprilia the first row since Jeremy McWilliams at Phillip Island in 2000.
Jack Miller (Ducati Lenovo Team) opens the second row in fourth, with Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) in fifth and Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) in sixth.
The third row starts with Jorge Martin (Pramac Racing Ducati) in seventh, with Pol Espargaro (Repsol Honda Team) in eighth and Takaaki Nakagami (LCR Honda IDEMITSU) in ninth.
Who disappointed was Joan Mir (Team SUZUKI ECSTAR), who starts from 17th position, and, above all, Maverick Viñales (Monster Energy Yamaha), who is second to last (only managed to be ahead of Lorenzo Savadori).
Anyway, the German GP race for MotoGP takes place this Sunday, June 20, at 2pm local time (GMT+2).
