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.
