2022 Mugello Moto3 Qualifying Result: Hot Pace On Hot Asphalt

A clear blue sky and temperatures in the 30s set the scene for qualifying in the lightweight class but that picture did not last for long, as almost-black clouds started seeping in throughout Q2. Despite the threat from above, the asphalt kept dry until the chequered flag, allowing Deniz Öncü to claim pole position in the final couple of minutes of the session and perform an A+ wheelie. Although Dennis Foggia and John McPhee looked like the strongest competition in Q2, Daniel Holgado ended up as the Turkish rider’s biggest challenger, the rookie going from 10th to second on his final flying lap, only nine hundredths of a second off pole position. After proving his pace in practice, Foggia settled for third, closing the front row of the grid.

Sergio Garcia also made his way from outside the top 10 to open the second row of the grid, where he was joined late on by teammate Izan Guevara and an impressive McPhee, who spent a significant amount of time in provisional pole. Rookie Diogo Moreira heads row three ahead of Riccardo Rossi and Q1 leader Ryusei Yamanaka, while Jaume Masia rounded out the top 10 positions, seventh tenths of a second off pole. The Spaniard will share fourth row with Tatsuki Suzuki and last-minute Q1 graduate Lorenzo Fellon, while row five is comprised of rookies Matteo Bertelle, Scott Ogden and David Muñoz - who is finally appropriately-aged to make his grand prix debut and doing it in fine style. Andrea Migno opens a more experienced sixth row, with Carlos Tatay and Stefano Nepa.

A big absence in the day’s action was that of Ayumu Sasaki, who was ruled out of the Italian GP due to concussion and collarbone fractures sustained in a scary crash on Friday.
