2014 Indianapolis GP: MotoGP Qualifying Results - Marquez Rides To Eighth Pole Of 2014

Marc Marquez took pole at the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix from Andrea Dovizioso and Jorge Lorenzo, clinching the top spot on the grid at the modified IMS track with a best lap of 1’31.619.

An eighth pole of the season for Marquez gives him a good chance of continuing his winning run as he seeks a tenth successive victory on Sunday.

Dovizioso (Ducati Team) produced a good lap towards the end of Q2 to get within 0.225s of Marquez in second, whilst Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) was a quarter of a second off pole as he completed the front row.

Aleix Espargaro (NGM Forward Racing) impressed again in fourth, whilst Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) reached his usual target of a top five qualifying position. Aleix’s brother Pol Espargaro (Monster Yamaha Tech3) was provisionally on the front row but was eventually pushed back to sixth.

Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing), Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) and Bradley Smith (Monster Yamaha Tech3) will line up on row three. Smith was deemed fit to ride in the race after a big high side at Turn 2 in the final minutes of Q2, which left him with a painful finger injury.

Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda MotoGP) heads the fourth row after topping FP3 earlier in the day. Whilst Scott Redding (GO&FUN Honda Gresini) and Cal Crutchlow (Ducati Team) made it through from Q1 to qualify 11th and 12th respectively.

Substitute rider Leon Camier did well as he rides in place of Nicky Hayden for the Drive M7 Aspar team, qualifying 16th from Q1.

Alvaro Bautista (GO&FUN Honda Gresini) qualified 14th after surviving a big high side earlier in proceedings in FP3, whilst Broc Parkes (Paul Bird Motorsport) walked away from a Q1 crash and will start 22nd on the grid.

Moto2: Pole position for cool Kallio on Indianapolis grid

Moto2™ qualifying practice saw Mika Kallio claim pole position for the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix, with Tito Rabat and Dominique Aegerter completing the front row, despite a big crash for Rabat towards the end of the session. Marc VDS Racing Team rider Kallio’s 1’36.883 best lap early in the session gave him his second pole of the year, ahead of his teammate Rabat who pushed for the top spot late on but ultimately crashed with eight minutes to go. Rabat initially looked shaken after the high speed tumble but was able to walk away from the spill.

Sachsenring race winner Aegerter (Technomag carXpert) will aim for a second successive victory, this time from third on the grid on his Suter machine.

Johann Zarco (AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing), Simone Corsi (NGM Forward Racing) and Maverick Viñales (Paginas Amarillas HP 40) qualified on row two, with similar lap times just over half a second off pole.

Takaaki Nakagami (IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia), Sandro Cortese (Dynavolt Intact GP) and Thomas Luthi (Interwetten Paddock Moto2) all secured row three starts, with Sam Lowes (Speed Up) in tenth.

An incident packed session also saw crashes for Robin Mulhauser (Technomag carXpert), Ricard Cardus (Tech 3), Alex De Angelis (Tasca Racing Moto2) and Lorenzo Baldassarri (Gresini Moto2), whilst Josh Herrin (AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing) and Xavier Simeon (Federal Oil Gresini Moto2) fell after they tangled towards the end of the QP. None of the riders suffered any major consequence from the incidents.

Moto3: Championship leader Miller on pole at the Brickyard

Jack Miller secured top spot in qualifying for the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix ahead of Efren Vazquez and Alex Marquez as Moto3™ builds up to the first race on the new layout. Miller (Red Bull KTM Ajo) put in a 1’40.727 around the modified Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s Grand Prix layout to secure his sixth pole of the year. Miller came away unscathed from an FP3 crash as he found his limit earlier in the day.

Vazquez (SAXOPRINT RTG) lines up second on the grid having earlier been the fastest rider in FP3. Marquez (Estrella Galicia 0,0) completed row one just 0.001s behind Vazquez who himself was only 0.08s off Miller’s pace.

Romano Fenati (SKY Racing Team VR46) qualified fourth after having a lap cancelled for exceeding the track limits early in QP. Row two will also feature Juanfran Guevara (Mapfre Aspar Team Moto3) and notably Jorge Navarro (Marc VDS Racing Team) as he comes in to replace Livio Loi.

John McPhee (SAXOPRINT RTG), Francesco Bagnaia (SKY Racing Team VR46) and Alessandro Tonucci (CIP Mahindra) complete the third row, whilst Karel Hanika (Red Bull KTM Ajo) was 10th and Alex Rins (Estrella Galicia 0,0) was 12th.

Alexis Masbou (Ongetta-Rivacold) overcame an early crash in qualifying after technical problems in FP3 and qualified 11th. Zulfahmi Khairuddin (Ongetta-AirAsia) ended the session with a highside but was not seriously hurt and will line up 15th on the grid.
