Qualifying for the 11th round of the 2020 Moto2 World Championship took place at MotorLand Aragon Fabio Di Giannantonio came into qualifying as the fastest rider, after setting a new lap record in FP3

In Q1, just over a tenth of a second covered the first four riders, with Jorge Martin, Tetsuta Nagashima, Simone Corsi and Tom Luthi in Q2

Q2 saw five riders drop below the old lap record and four dive into 1’51 The first was Jake Dixon, although he also ended up being the slowest of the four, before Fabio Di Giannantonio , Marco Bezzecchi and finally Sam Lowes do not go under 1’52 They were the first four to go under 1’52 on a Moto2 bike, and it was Lowes who took pole position, the 10th of his career, as he continued his strong form at Le Mans where, of course, , he was victorious Just 22 points back in the championship, there is a chance tomorrow for Lowes to continue his streak in the series and really put pressure on the three Italians ahead of him in the points

One of those Italians is Marco Bezzecchi The # 72 is 20 points behind in the championship this weekend, and qualified second, joining Lowes in first place with Di Giannantonio who only took his second row in Moto2

Dixon, as previously mentioned, was slowing down those who were able to dive into 1’51, but it was still good enough for fourth place on the grid for the heartbroken Briton there. just under a week after his crash at Le Mans looks like there is a chance of redemption for Dixon tomorrow, as he starts from the second row lead alongside Marcos Ramirez – a personal best in Moto2 qualifying for # 42 – and Jorge Navarro

Luca Marini will have work to do tomorrow as Sam Lowes’ lap of pole position pushed the championship leader to seventh The bright spot for Marini is that so far his weekend has been is going pretty well and her pace is pretty good A patient approach might be her choice tomorrow, but it might allow those who start from the front to stretch in the early stages

Jorge Martin and Augusto Fernandez will join Marini in third row; while Rémy Gardner completed the top 10 in qualifying and will start from the front of the fourth row tomorrow The Australian will start alongside Joe Roberts and Enea Bastianini, the second man in the Championship who will have work to do from 12th place in order to reduce its deficit by 16 points at Marini

Tom Luthi could only manage 13th on the grid, and will be joined by Tetsuta Nagashima and Hector Garzo in fifth; while Edgar Pons leads the sixth row of Bo Bendsneyder and Simone Corsi

Hafizh Syahrin was the fastest driver to miss Q2, the 19th in Malaysian qualifying. Alongside him, in seventh place, will be Xavi Vierge and Lorenzo Baldassarri; while Marcel Schrotter was disappointed to be only eighth in Q1 and will therefore start 22nd ahead of Stefano Manzi and Lorenzo Dalla Porta who will join him in eighth row

The ninth row will see Somkiat Chantra starting from the 25th alongside Nicolo Bulega and Andi Izdihar; while Aron Canet’s replacement as Aspar, Xavi Cardelus, will lead row 10 ahead of Kasma Daniel and Piotr Biesiekirski, the slowest of the 30 qualifiers
