Spanish GP: Suzuki signs his third pole in a row at Jerez and Acosta, 13th

Andrea Migno’s record time of 1’44 ”948 in FP3 for the Moto3 Spanish Grand Prix with more than half a second over the second and his condition of having led all free practice made the Italian the great favorite for pole . But he has been surprised by the most Italian Japanese on the grill, Tatsuki Suzuki who took his third straight pole in Jerez ahead of Jeremy Alcoba and Andrea Migno. The leader Pedro Acosta who had to go to the repechage will start fifth row.

The first benchmark time has already been for Suzuki, double poleman in Jerez last year, with 1’45 ”979 by 0” 028 over Migno and the Japanese has redoubled the bet with 1’45 ”807 and two tenths over the Italian before returning to the pits with the two World Cup strongmen Acosta (at 0 ”860) and Masià (at 1” 036) provisionally ninth and eleventh and discarded and Darryn Binder due to a very heavy crash.

To dismount Suzuki, the favorites have played it to a lap and a good part of them have caught the flag, as in the case of Masià or Migno, thus spoiling their clear option of pole. Jeremy Alcoba climbed to second place at 0 ”125, getting between Suzuki and Migno. In the last lap Acosta has not been able to improve his time and will start 13th in fifth row if there are no subsequent sanctions. Fourth was Gabri Rodrigo who will share the second row with Fenati and McPhee. 11th Izan Guevara, 13th Pedro Acosta, 15th Jaume Masià, 16th Carlos Tatay and 17th Xavi Artigas.

Acosta, first time in Q1 and best time

For the first time so far in the championship, Pedro Acosta had to go through Q1, being 17th in the freestyle combined. His first minutes of Q1 have been full of scares – he was eighth before the passage through the pits when the first four pass. Jerez is not one of his favorite circuits and even in 2019 in a Rookies race he suffered a concussion in a heavy crash. Before the last lap he was ninth and he started it in a red helmet and took the best time (1’46 ”138) with passes and reviews including Yamanaka. Together with him, Guevara, Tatay and Alcoba, four of the six Spaniards in this Q1, achieved the pass. García Dols will start 21st and Pitito Fernández will start 22nd
