Pecco Bagnaia jumps Le Mans and reaches the top spot in MotoGP French GP

Italian Pecco Bagnaia will make a strong start to the French GP of MotoGP after marking the reference time in Q2. With a time of 1: 30.450, the Ducati rider not only got the best chance to start, but also broke the full Le Mans record, a time that has been reduced in all previous sessions. Jack Miller after taking the wheel from his girlfriend was second, while Aleix Espargaró will be accompanied by two men from the Borgo Panigale company in the front row..

If in free practice the full track record of a song had already been broken, in Q2 making the best Le Mans cycle record was reduced again. Before that, Q1 provided an interesting and beautiful match between Joan Mir and Jorge Martín by getting the best time, though they all seemed to lose one of the two Q2 tickets before the push of the Italian Marco Bezzechi. There was no need to mourn the ‘wounded’ and Jorge Martin finished first for a time of 1: 30.804. Joan Mir was one in ten behind, with Bezzechi seven thousand behind the Spaniard.

Jack Miller was able to increase his resources and finish second behind Pecco Bagnaia.

By Q2, the La Sarthe circuit was painted red, despite attempts from the stand to find local hero Fabio Quartararo in a good position. However, Ducati imposed his rule and under the influence of Pecco Bagnaia he won a resounding double victory. In the end, Pecco not only took the pole with a time of 1: 30.450, but also in his best thigh he ‘pulled’ Jack Miller sending the Australian to second place on the grid. The distance between the two at the end of Q2 was only 69 thousand.

Aleix Espargaró became the Ducati men’s travel companion for third place finish and claiming the front row of the grid an unimaginable minute before, when he dropped in FP4. In fact, Aleix signed a fine classification to defeat Fabio Quartararo, four for the frustration of his audience. For his part, Enea Bastianini took fifth place, which left another Frenchman on the grid, Johann Zarco, in sixth place. Joan Mir, Álex Rins and Jorge Martin, with some problems on the bike, took third place in the grid..

For its part, the fourth starting line was taken by Honda pilots. Despite the good work of the two factory team drivers and the Japanese Takaaki Nakagami, none of the three had a real chance to get the top positions. Taking the last three positions in Q2, Marc Márquez will start in tenth place, just ahead of Pol Espargaró and Takaaki Nakagami mentioned above.. Perhaps Márquez’s assertion that he is not here to fight for the World Cup stems from these kinds of consequences.
