Jorge Martin won pole position for the second time in the rookie MotoGP season. This time is the Austrian Red Bull Ring.

The Spaniards took over pole position after Fabio Quartararo removed his lap time as he exceeded the track limit on Turn 9.

Martin deserved Paul because he set several scorching times, including when he became the first rider to orbit the Austrian circuit within 83 seconds. This was the lap to get him a pole.

Martin set a time of 1’22.994 seconds on Pramaci Ducati, just 0.044 seconds faster than factory Ducati rider Francesco Bagnaia.

Quartararo’s second fastest time, with the fastest lap canceled, was less than a tenth of Paul’s, enough to be third.

Australia’s Jack Miller passed the qualifying in 4th place and his factory Ducati bike championship candidate was a 0.308 second pole off.

Miller was only 0.018 seconds faster than current champion Joan Mir. After a crash in the final practice session, the factory Suzuki rider responded to find a spot in the second row.

Championship candidate Johann Zarco will start in 6th place ahead of Aprilia’s factory rider Aleix Espargaro.

Eight-time motorcycle world champion Marc Marquez set the fastest first sector of the session in his last attempt, but fell off Honda on Turn 3.

As a result, Marquez will start in the third row in 8th place, one step ahead of Maverick Viñales.

Next was LCR Honda’s boys in 10th place with Takaaki Nakagami and Alex Marquez in 11th place. Miguel Oliveira closed the 12 runners in the second qualifying segment.

Alex Marquez and Oliveira sneaked up in the second quarter, but there were some disappointments in the first quarter.

Factory Suzuki rider Alex Rins made a mistake by 0.033 seconds, resulting in a start in 13th place.

Enea Tierney appeared to have finished the session on the timesheet, but like Quartararo, the fastest lap was stripped due to abuse of track restrictions.

The Italian’s second fastest time wasn’t that good, and he starts in 20th place.

KTM wildcard Dani Pedrosa was almost upset on his return and passed the qualifying in 14th place ahead of Pol Espargaro and Brad Binder.

Valentino Rossi, who has been talked about, retired 0.018 seconds earlier than his half-brother Luca Marini within 48 hours of announcing his retirement.

After several falls over the weekend, Iker Lecuona passed the qualifying in 19th place ahead of Bastianini, Lorenzo Savadori, Danilo Petrucci and his successor, Cal Crutchlow.

The Styria Marc Grand Prix begins at 10 pm on the AEST.
