2022 Aragon Moto3 Qualifying Result: Early Bird Offer

The first qualifying session of the day was a rather anti-climactic affair, with pole position settled only three laps into Q2, and not many changes on the timing screens in the closing stages of the session. Despite missing out on a final flying lap, Izan Guevara kept pole position by nine hundredths of a second ahead of Ayumu Sasaki, with Dani Holgado joining them on the front row of the grid.

The Leopard Racing machines sandwich John McPhee on the second row, with Tatsuki Suzuki in fourth and Dennis Foggia sixth. Rookie Ivan Ortolá had another impressive performance with seventh on the grid, opening row three from compatriot Jaume Masia and teammate Stefano Nepa. Speaking of teammates, Xavier Artigas and Carlos Tatay were separated by eight hundredths of a second, sharing fourth row with Sergio Garcia – the title contender having another underwhelming qualifying session but hoping to match it with the usual comeback come Sunday. The Spaniard won’t have it easy though, with Deniz Öncü starting just behind him, the Turkish rider stranded in 13th after some technical problems limited his running and made him miss the final time attack. Adrian Fernandez and Taiyo Furusato will join him on the fifth row, while Q1 graduate David Muñoz shares sixth row with Riccardo Rossi and Diogo Moreira – who failed to post a timed lap after an early tumble.

Andrea Migno was the first to miss out in Q1, one tenth off the luckier foursome, and will start in 19th position, while teammate Alberto Surra was declared unfit due to a left wrist fracture suffered in an FP3 crash.

Just when you thought it couldn't get any more stupid along pops Max racing and their street hard man act. Regardless of the sanctions I wouldn't be surprised if they packed up and went home out of sheer toe-curling embarrassment.

I've only seen a short clip of the incident, what did they think they were going to do?  Did the two mechanics involved get a 2 race ban?

They delayed him leaving until Sasaki had left. That was the objective. According to the team and to big Max himself the team is disgusted ! Goes against their 'code of ethics' apparently. I mean apparently one existed previously. Must be posted on the office wall. The offenders will be punished accordingly ! It was just so utterly clumsy and crap like some half assed delinquents down the local shops. In the grand scheme of things it was nothing other than some form of cheating, not very sporting etc but I think the main offence is that it was so bone crushingly pathetic. Why not kill the motor ? Show some skill, some know how. No, just sort of act like a nob making it difficult for elderly ladies to get off a bus.
