The CatalunyaCaixa Repsol rider gets, on wet, his second consecutive pole, the third followed in Sachsenring
Like a pylon hammer. The CatalunyaCaixa Repsol rider Marc Márquez has once again dominated a timed session and achieved his sixth pole of eight possible this season, the 13th in the Moto2 category and the 27th of his sporting career. In addition, the one of Cervera adds three consecutive poles in Sachsenring, in 125cc in 2010 and in Moto2 the last two years. After the great work completed during all the free practice sessions, the CX Repsol and his team have shown their full potential in a qualifying session marked, again, by the intermittent rain.
A potential that comes from the direct causality of the hard work carried out in each session. Under meteorological conditions very similar to those of yesterday, the one from Cervera has come out with determination and, immediately, he has been able to place his mount in the first positions of the general classification. The CatalunyaCaixa Repsol rider, very consistent throughout the morning, after completing 22 laps, has achieved the third best record (1’25.653, +0.423 of Pol Espargaró, first classified) of the session. The one from Cervera, progressing from less to more, finished the session with a good rhythm, prelude to the qualifying session in the afternoon.
Two minutes after the end of the morning session of Moto2, it started to rain at Sachsenring and a strong deluge entered the scene surprising all the Moto3 riders. However, after the official MotoGP training, the asphalt conditions have improved substantially. Knowing the great difficulty of running under these weather conditions, Márquez has started with determination, occupying the front positions, although he would soon find himself again with the rain, which has stopped in the final stretch of the session. With the asphalt in better conditions, Marc has managed to take advantage of the situation and after making a spectacular lap, the CatalunyaCaixa Repsol rider has achieved his best record (1’34.503). It was in his 22nd round of the total of 23 he has completed.
So, the CatalunyaCaixa Repsol rider will start tomorrow at the German Grand Prix (11.20 hours) from the front row, for the seventh time this season.
Marc Márquez, CatalunyaCaixa Repsol rider, ‘pole’, time: 1’34.503, 45 laps:
“We knew that in today’s training it was important not to lose momentum in the first few minutes, but we came out with a little margin, since we expected that there would be less water on the track at the end to mark the best times. We have been improving training, increasing confidence little by little, and in the last outing I did try to give everything, I was quite sure, although in water you can never be completely, and my goal has been to qualify in the front row, or as close as possible, because with all the times so tight you could find yourself far behind, I have fulfilled the objective and for tomorrow, both in dry and in water, we have a good base “.
