  • MotoGP Australian: Jorge Martin Takes Pole Position with New Lap Record at Phillip Island

  • The Round 18 of MotoGP 2022, Animoca Brands Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix took place at Phillip Island circuit in Australia on October 15, 2022.
    Jorge Martin (Pramac Ducati) claimed his third pole position of 2022 season with a new lap record 1'27.767s, following Qatar GP and American GP.
    To date, the lap record at Phillip Island had belonged to three-time MotoGP world champion Jorge Lorenzo since 2013.
    But Jorge Martin re-wrote the record for the first time in nine years.
    Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda) took advantage of Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo)'s slipstream to take 2nd.
    World Championship title contender Francesco Bagnaia took 3rd ahead of other contenders Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing) 4th and Fabio Quartararo (Monster Yamaha) 5th .
    Johann Zarco (Pramac Ducati) advanced to Q2 from Q1 and finished 6th. Luca Marini (Mooney VR46 Ducati) was 7th.
    Local hero Jack Miller (Ducati Lenovo) finished 8th. But he had Turn 4 at Phillip Island renamed in his honour before Qualifying.
    Marco Bezzecchi (Mooney VR46 Ducati) was 9th. Alex Rins (Suzuki Ecstar) advanced to Q2 from Q1 and finished 10th.
    Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM) was given a three-place grid penalty, plus a long-lap penalty for the race, for doing an illegal practice start onTurn 2 and then riding slowly on the racing line and holding up Enea Bastianini (Gresini Ducati) on Turn 9 at the end of Qualifying 1.

    Jorge Martin said, “For sure, Lorenzo won't be super-happy today now, but for sure, it's time to beat those records because the bikes are much faster now. Yesterday, I was a bit lost because this track is so fast – it's my first time here so I had to take the measurements – but finally today, I had good pace. I feel strong for the race also, and for time attack, I thought I could also be competitive – not that much, for sure. Making a 27, it's amazing, but I'm feeling good and I think we can fight to the end tomorrow.”
