DRIVE M7 Aspar Team MotoGP - 11 GP Czech Republic - QP

Series leader Marc Márquez wasted no time in stamping his authority on MotoGP qualifying this afternoon, establishing the early benchmark and then continuing to lower his times on his way to pole position for tomorrow's race at Brno. Andrea Iannone was smart enough to catch a tow from the World Champion, momentarily leading the classification before dropping back to third place behind fellow Ducati rider Andrea Dovizioso. With his ninth pole of the season in the bag, Márquez will tomorrow look to make it eleven race wins from eleven.

There was constant progress throughout the day in the DRIVE M7 Aspar Team garage, where Hiroshi Aoyama and Leon Camier significantly improved on their best times from yesterday whilst improving the set-up of their machines and establishing a strong and consistent pace. The Japanese rider found almost a second today whilst the Brit improved by almost two seconds in just his second MotoGP event. The pair will both start from the sixth row of the grid in sixteenth and eighteenth place respectively.

16th Hiroshi Aoyama 1.57.984: “We had two very different sessions yesterday, one wet and one dry, so we didn't get to work out the best set-up for the bike. So this morning we had to check some things and try a change. We made some good progress and continued with that this afternoon, setting a consistent pace throughout the day. Obviously we need to continue improving and to find a bit more pace for the race but we still have room to improve we know what we need to do.”

18th Leon Camier 1.58.635: “Even though I set a strong and consistent pace today I didn't manage to put a hot lap together. I am happy with the work we did though and we know where we need to improve. To be honest I think the progress we have made is pretty incredible, we've taken a few seconds off the lap time from yesterday to today, but we need more time and losing a session to the rain yesterday didn't help. We are gradually closing the gap to the guys in front of us, our pace here is better than it was at Indy and hopefully we can have a good race tomorrow after all the hard work so far this weekend.”
