2022 Assen Moto2 Qualifying Result: A New Power Duo

The clouds were here to stay for the final qualifying session of the day, but the intermediate class was not to be deterred from attacking pole position until the last second of Q2, when Jake Dixon robbed teammate Albert Arenas of the honour by a minuscule hundredth of a second. The duo secured a one-two on the grid for a euphoric Aspar squad, with Arenas also registering his best qualifying result in the class in second position.

After leading the way just a handful of minutes earlier, Sam Lowes had to settle for the final spot on the front row, while Ai Ogura finds himself on the second row, despite being only five hundredths of a second slower than the poleman. Newcomer Alonso Lopez continues to show off with his speed, joining the second row ahead of Q1 leader Jorge Navarro. Joe Roberts and local favourite Bo Bendsneyder dropped back to third row after spending the early part of the session at the top end, while practice leader Augusto Fernandez could not match his earlier performance and settled for ninth.

Marcel Schrotter rounded out the top 10, sharing fourth row with championship leader Celestino Vietti, whose turn three tumble halfway through proceedings ended the session early for the Italian and allowed him to slip back to 11th place on the grid. Rookie Filip Salac closes fourth row, while Tony Arbolino fronts row five, ahead of Q1 graduates Barry Baltus and Manuel Gonzalez.

The notable absences in Assen continue to be Aron Canet, who is out of commission with a broken nose and recurring nose bleeds, and Pedro Acosta, the rookie fresh off the operating table after suffering a broken left femur in training.
