MotoGP San Marino GP: Martin crushes lap record to grab pole from Bezzecchi, Bagnaia
After going without a pole since last year’s Valencia GP, Jorge Martin dominated qualifying at Misano, setting two lap records to secure pole position. He finished miles ahead of his closest rival, Marco Bezzecchi, who qualified in second place. Despite his horror crash in Barcelona, championship leader Francesco Bagnaia completed the front row. Martin’s lap record of 1m30.390s secured Ducati’s eighth consecutive pole position this season. Maverick Vinales starts in fourth, followed by Dani Pedrosa and Aleix Espargaro. Yamaha’s Fabio Quartararo missed out on a spot in Q2 and will start in 13th place.
