An all-Italian front row and a triumph of Ducati in the top 5, for Diggia it is the first pole in the top class
A great Fabio Di Giannantonio, riding the Ducati of the Gresini team, conquers the pole position of the Italian GP at Mugello. At the first pole of his career in the top class, the Roman driver precedes his compatriots in the front row Marco Bezzecchi e Luca Marini, with the Ducatis of the Mooney VR46 team. Ducati also in the second row, with Zarco e Bagnaia that precede Quartararo. Marquezwho crashed at the start of Q2 with a motorcycle on fire, will start 12th.
Outstanding performance, in track conditions between dry and wet, delivers a Fabio Di Giannantonio the first ever MotoGP pole of his career. A time of applause for the Roman driver of the Gresini team, who amazes everyone in 1: 46.156 and grabs a pole that only a few hours ago seemed impossible. To make the Italian afternoon at Mugello even sweeter, there is also the thick Italic presence in the Parc Fermé, with Di Giannantonio who will start in front of everyone in the race and to his right will be the two friends Marco Bezzecchi e Luca Marini. A real triumph of Italy, in the Mugello GP which has always been the land of conquest of the “Doctor” Valentino Rossi who today, six months after his farewell to the world of motors, saw his 46 retired forever from the MotoGP.
Three Italians on an Italian bike that continues to please, the Ducati that, moving a step further, just a few meters on the starting grid, will also find space in the second row. In fact, behind the Diggia-Bez-Marini trio, the Pramac of Johann Zarco followed by the Desmosedici of Francesco Bagnaia, with the Piedmontese who could play the last cards a few seconds from the end and then decided to abort the round. In the second row there will also be Fabio Quartararowhich will start from the sixth place.
Third row for Aprilia’s Aleix Espargaròfollowed by Nakagami and by his brother Pol, while Aeneas Bastianini and Jorge Martinwith the other Ducatis, will start from the fourth row together with Marc Marquez. The “Cabroncito” was the protagonist of a bad fall, without consequences for him, at the start of Q2: a violent high-side in turn 2, a bike that hits the ground and is destroyed in the front complete with flames and a red flag.
On the other hand, hopes for Jack Millerwhich will start 13th, as well as those of Pirro who will start 14th as a wild card. Performance to be reviewed for Vinales, Morbidelli e Doviziosowho will start from behind, but with uncertain track conditions between wet and dry that have not allowed us to improve and achieve the time to access the final phase of qualifying.
