Quartararo added to his tally of front-row qualifying positions to take his total up to eight at the end of the session, setting a lap in the final seconds of Q2 to jump up the grid for tomorrow’s 23-lap race. Securing a strong position in the starting order means Quartararo is confident that he can add to his tally of four podium finishes tomorrow.
Morbidelli also had a strong qualifying at Aragon despite having to progress through Q1. The #21 rider was able to top the first session to secure his passage through to Q2 and go on to set the eighth-fastest time. Still hoping to find a little more from the Yamaha YZR-M1 in tomorrow morning’s warm-up, Morbidelli is confident that he can get stuck into the battle for the top five again.
The action at MotorLand Aragon concludes tomorrow, with Sunday’s 23-lap race at the Gran Premio de Aragon getting underway at 1300 local time (1900 Malaysian time).
