2016 Jerez Moto2 Qualifying Result: Leave The Best To Last

Jonas Folger set an early fast lap, the fastest of the weekend so far, of 1'42.436 with over 30 minutes remaining in the session, but it dodn't take long for Sandro Cortese, Franco Morbidelli, Sam Lowes and Thomas Luthi to get within a tenth of a second. This stayed the same until there was less than five minutes left and Sam Lowes, sliding spectacularly through the last sector, pulled a 1'42.433 out followed by an equally slippery 1'42.408. Jonas Folger, charging to the flag, looked on the pace to challenge Lowes, but nobody could match the Englishman in the last sector. 

Sam Lowes took pole position in a session where the top twenty riders were covered by less than a second. Jonas Folger and Sandro Cortese rounded out the front row.
