Fabio Quartararo sensationally won MotoGP qualification in JerezMay 5, 2019
At the age of 20 years and 14 days, Fabio Quartararo became the youngest pole holder in MotoGP history, having won the chaotic qualifying session in Jerez. Moreover, the Frenchman almost on the tenth updated the track record, which Danilo Petrucci set a few hours earlier, having passed the circle for 1.36.880.
The second time was shown by a young French partner for Petronas Yamaha, Franco Morbidelli, in the final attempt ahead of the early session leader Marc Marquez by 0.008 seconds. Andrea Dovizioso walked ahead of time Kuartarro, but lost more than a tenth in the last sector and remained only the fourth. The second row of the starting grid will be complemented by Maverick Viñales, who, unlike his partner in Monster Energy Yamaha Valentino Rossi, was able to break through from the first segment, and Cal Kratchlou.
Danilo Petrucci at Ducati, who set the pace in training, remained only the seventh, falling after the checkered flag at the very end of the qualification. Jorge Lorenzo also fell in the second turn three minutes before the end of the session and will start the race from the 11th position.
