  • MotoGP Styrian: Jorge Martin Takes Pole Position After Fabio Quartararo Has Best Lap Cancelled

  • The Round 10 of MotoGP 2021, Michelin Grand Prix of Styria took place at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg on August 7, 2021.
    This time, Dani Pedrosa (Red Bull KTM) and Cal Crutchlow (Petronas Yamaha), who were retired in 2018 and in 2020 each, returned to MotoGP.
    Dani Pedrosa participates this event as a wildcard. Meanwhile, Cal Crutchlow joins the race to replace Franco Morbidelli.
    Jorge Martin (Pramac Ducati) claimed his second pole position with 1'22.994s after Fabio Quartararo's (Monster Yamaha) best lap 1m22.958s was cancelled due to out of track limits at Turn 9.
    Finally, Francesco Bagnaia (Fabio Quartararo) took 2nd position and Fabio Quartararo dropped to 3rd position.
    Jack Miller (Ducati Team), Joan Mir (Suzuki Ecstar) and Johann Zarco (Pramac Ducati) will start on the second row tomorrow.
    Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda) was 8th after a late crash at Turn 3.
    Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM), who won Styria GP last year, advanced to Q2 from Q1, but was 12th due to his hand injury.
    Dani Pedrosa, who was an impressive 14th in his first qualifying session since 2018. While, Cal Crutchlow will start at 24th.

    Jorge Martin said, “Yeah, it's been a really good day for me in general. Normally I am quite competitive here, in the past I used to be fast. But riding a MotoGP, everything is different and I wasn't expecting to be that competitive. But today from the morning I felt quite competitive with the medium tyre, and then when we put the soft on we were close to the top. And also in FP4 I felt confident, so I said, 'maybe I'm one of the candidates to make the pole position'. And the first stint, I pushed quite a lot but I did a lot of mistakes. And even if I went to the green [run-off] I did 1m23.1s, which wasn't so bad. Then in the second try, I did my best, I pushed to the limit and even if I had one moment where I almost crashed I managed to stop the bike and to finish in pole position is amazing. I've never expected this before coming to this track, but happy and ready for tomorrow.”
    He added, “Yeah, as you can see the summer break was really good for me. The last race in Assen I had to retire because of my physical condition and I was angry with myself for the situation. I could transform this situation for motivation and I worked a lot during the summer break, so I feel much better. For sure, maybe not 100%, maybe the last laps I'll struggle a bit, but I feel really good. I feel confident, after the podium in Qatar my mind was more free and I'm not focused only on the podium – just to work and to improve.”
