Fernandez takes maiden Moto2™ pole, top six within 0.1

Heading into the final few minutes, just 0.089 separated the top four and despite the continued session and personal best sectors being set, Fernandez’ time couldn’t be matched as the riders struggled to beat their times from earlier in the 15-minute Q2 session. However, a late charge from Lowes was looming and through the third split, the British rider was on course to snatch pole from Fernandez as the chequered flag dropped. But, Lowes couldn’t quite hold it through the last sector as the number 22 rider went to P3, just 0.029 off pole and 0.008 off Lüthi in P2. This meant Fernandez would start his home GP from the number one spot on the grid, with Championship contender Lüthi earning his third front-row start in a row – the first time he’s managed that since 2012.
