2021 Misano Moto2 Qualifying Result: Making A Late Statement

Rain flags started waving as soon as the lights in pitlane turned green for Q1 but conditions quickly improved for Q2 and throughout the session, so the lead changed hands quite a bit over 15 minutes. Remy Gardner and Sam Lowes put in their bid for pole early on but Raul Fernandez proved to be one step ahead once more, the rookie securing his fifth pole position of the season on his final flying lap. Only Lowes managed to finish within half a second of the poleman but namesake Augusto Fernandez will also join them on the front row of the grid, for the first time this season, dropping Gardner to 4th.

Alongside a solid fifth place on the grid, Aron Canet also provided a nice moment for the highlights reel with a save at turn 3 and will be joined by compatriot Jorge Navarro on row two. Xavi Vierge opens row three from home favourites Marco Bezzecchi and Fabio Di Giannantonio, while rookie Lorenzo Dalla Porta made the best of his somewhat lucky Q1 escape to climb onto row four, ahead of Nicolo Bulega and Ai Ogura. Marcel Schrotter leads row five from Q1 graduates Tom Luthi and Joe Roberts, while the fastest man in Q1, Celestino Vietti, will start 17th, in between Stefano Manzi and Somkiat Chantra, after timing his Q1 laps to perfection to escape the rain.
