2021 Magny-Cours World Supersport Superpole Result: Not All Yamahas

World Supersport Superpole qualifying was twenty minutes of dry weather.

Philipp Oettl opened the qualifying with a 1'41.474, but it was beaten by Niki Tuuli with a 1'41.474, the fastest lap of the weekend, on the MV Agusta. Dominique Aegerter and Federico Caricasulo also set early fast laps, with Aegerter quickest on his third timed lap. Aegerter set a 1'40.733 as a tough target to beat as everyone started pitting in for a tea break and a tyre change.

After the break, local Wildcard Valentin Debise took almost a tenth of a second off Aegerter's time with a 1'40.656 but Dominique Aegerter set a 1'40.459 as Luca Bernardi and Manuel Gonzalez were on a fast pace as the clock approached the flag.

With one minute left in the session, Luca Bernardi set a 1'40.330, and as the chequered flag was waved, nobody was on a decent enough pace to challenge Bernardi's lap. 

Luca Bernardi took pole position ahead of Dominique Aegerter and Niki Tuuli who joined him on the front row, Tuuli breaking the Yamaha lockout. The second row was headed by Valentin Debise, with Manuel Gonzalez in fifth place and fellow Frenchman Jules Cluzel in sixth. 

Bernardi's pole position is the first of his supersport career.
