2022 Barcelona Moto2 Qualifying Result: Back In Business

Intermediate class qualifying in the heat of Barcelona was starting to seem a little anticlimactic, with Aron Canet setting camp at the top of the pile early in Q2 and not many patches of red gracing the timing screens throughout the 15-minute session. However, Celestino Vietti added some spice to proceedings, the championship leader going under the radar after escaping Q1 and leaving it until the final lap of Q2 to threaten Canet’s position. The Italian’s late speed placed him eight thousandths of a second ahead and back in business with a second pole position of the season – the first since the opening race of the year. Canet resigned himself to starting second, while practice leader Joe Roberts makes a return to the front row in third position.

Jake Dixon came four hundredths of a second short of the front row, sharing row two with teammate Albert Arenas and compatriot Sam Lowes. Bo Bendsneyder followed up on a good showing in practice with a third row start, ahead of Augusto Fernandez and Marcel Schrotter, while Ai Ogura ended the day six tenths off pole – the joint championship leaders bookending the top 10. Alonso Lopez was the star of Q1 before securing a fourth row start, joined by compatriot Pedro Acosta, who spent most of Q1 in last place before jumping half a dozen places with his last flying lap.

Filip Salac, Manuel Gonzalez and Lorenzo Dalla Porta make up row five, with Q1 graduates Jorge Navarro and Tony Arbolino sandwiching Barry Baltus on the sixth row of the grid. Somkiat Chantra and Fermín Aldeguer were the big names to miss out on Q2 and settle with a seventh row start, while Cameron Beaubier was also unusually low in 23rd place.

2022 Barcelona MotoGP Qualifying Result: Who Could Have Seen That Coming

Not even the boiling 58°C tarmac could prevent threats to the all-time lap record around the Barcelona-Catalunya circuit and it was the local boy who stole the show to secure a dream pole position on his favourite playground. His speed throughout practice made him the clear favourite for pole but Aleix Espargaro kindly allowed Fabio Quartararo and Pecco Bagnaia some time in the limelight, before retrieving top spot in the final minute of Q2 and improving his own lap record set in the morning session. Although the gap to Bagnaia was only three hundredths of a second, it was too much for the Italian to overcome and he had to admit defeat and settle for second on the grid. Quartararo had no response to the Spaniard’s speed either but will join his main rivals on the front row of the grid.

If the front row was a more diverse affair, Ducati machines locked out row two, with the purple-tinted threats of Johann Zarco and Jorge Martin sandwiching another excellent performance from Fabio Di Giannantonio, the rookie only three tenths off pole. Alex Rins saved the day for Suzuki with seventh position, opening third row ahead of Q1 leader Maverick Viñales. The Spaniard had to fight his way through a very competitive Q1 session and fully earned his third row start, ahead of Luca Marini. The first Honda could be found on fourth row, where Pol Espargaro led the way from Jack Miller and Takaaki Nakagami – the Japanese rider serving a surprise in Q1 to deny some other fast men a place in Q2.

The first of those men was Marco Bezzecchi, the fine rookie spending much of the session in the top two positions but eventually missing out by one hundredth of a second. An even bigger name to miss out was Enea Bastianini, the most prolific victor of the season being denied passage to Q2 by three hundredths of a second and stuck with a fifth row start. The KTMs came out to play – if only briefly – with both Brad Binder and Miguel Oliveira threatening the top positions halfway through Q1, before settling for 15th and 16th on the grid, just ahead of a perpetually struggling Joan Mir. A notable absence from qualifying was Alex Marquez, who needed a trip to the medical centre after a fast tumble at turn 14 in FP4.

2022 Barcelona MotoGP FP4 Result: Aleix Espargaro Asserts His Dominance

The final practice session of the premier class was a good opportunity for some tyre experiments, with all the options getting an outing during the 30-minute session. Aleix Espargaro’s experiment was running full race distance on a set of mediums and it seemed to be a very successful one, the Spaniard boasting impeccable consistency and topping the session by a tenth of a second. In a familiar flashback from last weekend, Marco Bezzecchi was in close proximity, together with Fabio Quartararo – the reigning world champion two tenths off top spot.

Johann Zarco and Luca Marini joined them in the top five, while Maverick Viñales’ sixth place suggested that FP3 was more of a blip and he posted a solid run of laps on a soft rear tyre – the only rider to be tempted by it. Jorge Martin and Franco Morbidelli also posted times within half a second of the leader, with Enea Bastianini recovering some ground to ninth place. Pecco Bagnaia’s used rubber runs dropped him to the bottom of the top 10, while Joan Mir held onto 11th position despite some hairy moments at turn 10.

Miguel Oliveira was the top KTM in 12th position, six tenths off the fastest time, while teammate Brad Binder added a second crash of the day to his scorecard. Although not featuring in the top 10, the likes of Alex Rins, Pol Espargaro and Jack Miller were within eight tenths of a second of the leader.

2022 Barcelona Moto3 Qualifying Result: Bouncing Back In Style

Qualifying in Barcelona started with some Moto3 mayhem but ended in rather predictable fashion, with the fastest man in practice picking up top spot at the start of Q2 and leading throughout the session. Dennis Foggia went even quicker in his second run to secure a second career pole position with an advantage of a tenth of a second. Although Izan Guevara seemed to be his main threat, in the end it was Deniz Öncü who went from last on the timing screens to second at the chequered flag, sneaking ahead of the Spaniard on the front row.

If the front row line-up was a pretty familiar one, the second row was more of a surprise, with Lorenzo Fellon headlining it in fourth, less than three tenths of a second off pole. Ryusei Yamanaka’s good run of form continued with a close escape from Q1 and fifth place on the grid, while Riccardo Rossi joined his teammate and Q1 colleague on row two. Sergio Garcia seemed to struggle to match his rivals’ pace and had to settle for a third row start, ahead of the CIP Green Power duo of Kaito Toba and Joel Kelso. Tatsuki Suzuki could not quite match his teammate’s pace and rounded out the top 10 positions instead, opening fourth row from John McPhee and rookie Matteo Bertelle.

The other noteworthy rookie, Scott Ogden, had a roller coaster of an afternoon, topping Q1 but taking a tumble on some paint at turn three, putting his mechanics in a race against time to prepare his machine for Q2. The mission was successful and the British rider climbed as high as 13th, sharing fifth row with class veterans Jaume Masia and Andrea Migno. Masia’s speed promised more than 14th grid position, but a crash at turn 12 on a red-hot final flying lap robbed him of a chance to progress. David Salvador continued his successful cameo in the world championship with a sixth row start ahead of rookie Daniel Holgado and Carlos Tatay, who was last in Q2 after a crash late in the session. Some of the surprises of Q1 included Xavier Artigas struggling to threaten the top four and settling for 21st on the grid and rookie Ivan Ortolá with a pretty baffling back of the grid start.

2022 Barcelona Moto2 FP3 Result: Roberts (Just About) Rules

Bright balmy Barcelona set the scene for fast improvements in the intermediate class, Friday’s hierarchy unrecognisable after the first few minutes of FP3. Joe Roberts took control of the timesheets only three laps into the session and led throughout, holding onto an advantage of only one thousandth of a second over Jake Dixon. Pedro Acosta slipped under the radar until the final few minutes of the session, when he made a late jump into the top three.

Bo Bendsneyder impressed in fourth position, only two hundredths of a second away from top spot, while Albert Arenas rounded out the top five. Barry Baltus in sixth was only six hundredths behind the fastest time of the morning, the theme of insanely small gaps continuing throughout the top 20. Lorenzo Dalla Porta continues his upward trajectory with seventh position in FP3, closely followed by Aron Canet and Filip Salac. Sam Lowes slid down the rankings towards the end of the session, rounding out the top ten but less than two tenths keeping him away from top spot.

Marcel Schrotter was fast on Saturday morning as well but the bigger surprise was Manuel Gonzalez, the VR46 Master Camp rider making a late jump into 12th position and causing Celestino Vietti some trouble, the championship leader pushed out of the combined top 14 places. The final Q2 tickets went to Ai Ogura and Augusto Fernandez, although the Spaniard was one of only two riders who failed to go any quicker than Friday. With Vietti stuck in Q1, he will face stiff competition from the likes of Jorge Navarro, Tony Arbolino, Somkiat Chantra, Fermín Aldeguer and Cameron Beaubier.

2022 Barcelona MotoGP FP3 Result: Aleix Espargaro In A League Of His Own

MotoGP machines were unleashed in another beautiful low grip morning in Barcelona and spent much of their time chasing a precious Q2-worthy flying lap. Despite some early eagerness from the likes of Fabio Quartararo and Maverick Viñales, they were no match for the man of the moment, Aleix Espargaro, who posted the first 1:38 time of the weekend to go over half a second quicker than the opposition. Rivals spent the final third of the session trying to close down that gap and Johann Zarco eventually managed to come within a tenth of the Spaniard, but Espargaro’s new lap record meant he didn’t even have to bother with the final time attack.

Gaps were significantly more modest behind Espargaro and Zarco, with Jorge Martin joining the top three only two thousandths of a second ahead of Pecco Bagnaia, who in turn had only six hundredths in hand over teammate Jack Miller. After leading the way early on, Quartararo dropped to sixth, three tenths off top spot and another tenth ahead of Luca Marini – the Italian’s late pace causing some mixed feelings in the Aprilia garage, as he pushed Viñales out of top 10 contention. The remaining Q2 tickets were claimed by Pol Espargaro – despite an early tumble at turn five – Alex Rins and Fabio Di Giannantonio, the Italian rookie proving his speed once more to complete a top 10 covered by six tenths of a second.

Despite the fast start to his weekend/session, Viñales found himself in Q1 once more, but this time with better odds of making it out. However, he is likely to face strong competition from the likes of Enea Bastianini, who dropped out of contention in the closing stages of FP3, as well as Joan Mir, Marco Bezzecchi or Takaaki Nakagami. The gaggle of KTMs will have to enjoy some Q1 action as well, with Brad Binder as their top performer in 16th position, eight tenths slower than the leader.

2022 Barcelona Moto3 FP3 Result: Foggia Returns To The Spotlight

The cooler conditions of Saturday morning in Barcelona helped riders make a difference on the timesheets early in FP3, but Friday’s benchmark stood until the fight for the precious top 14 hotted up in the closing stages of the session. Although both Aspar boys enjoyed stints at the top of the timing screens, it was Dennis Foggia who posted the first 1:47 time of the weekend to become the fastest man in practice, two tenths ahead of rival Sergio Garcia. Replacement rider David Salvador impressed in third, only three hundredths of a second slower than his championship leading compatriot and a hundredth ahead of rookie Daniel Holgado.

Jaume Masia rounded out the top five, with Andrea Migno and Lorenzo Fellon also within half a second of the leader. Tatsuki Suzuki snuck ahead of Izan Guevara by five thousandths of a second, the Spaniard dropping down the timesheets in the final time attack, despite showing solid pace throughout the session. Rookie Joel Kelso completed the top 10, while the remaining Q2 tickets were handed out to Matteo Bertelle, John McPhee, Deniz Öncü and Carlos Tatay. Ivan Ortolá missed out by nine thousandths of a second and will have company from the likes of Riccardo Rossi, Mario Aji, Kaito Toba and Xavier Artigas in the battle of Q1.
