(cafetheology.org) – Maverick Vinales makes Yamaha happy in Misano despite the injury of Valentino Rossi. The Spaniard secured the pole position ahead of Ducati driver Andrea Dovizioso in a tight qualifying with a best time of 1: 32.439 minutes. +0.162 seconds) and World Champion Marc Marquez (+0.197). The Honda rider was not able to intervene in the final showdown, just before the end of the session (all results here!). "I'm on the second tire set," explains Marquez. "We tried the medium because we thought I could improve on it, but I'm pretty good, I've made a few mistakes, I wanted to make the next round better, I'm in the wind because of the wind "The first race had been finished by Marquez at the top of the tableau, and the first race had been finished, even though he had to break off his first two flying rounds. Only Ducati wildcard driver Michele Pirro clung to the rear wheel, then the 24-year-old braked. In his third flying round, however, he was able to secure his first fastest time, which should finally secure him a place in the opening row. Polesetter Vinales: "With every attempt faster" Dovizioso and Vinales were able to further increase Marquez's time and deliver themselves a tight qualifying duel – with the happier end for Vinales. "I really felt great today," the Yamaha pilot is happy about his Misano pole. "With every try, I got better and I got more and more self – confidence, so the wind was a bit better, so it was much easier to go for a quick lap, but the team did a great job I am delighted that I am strong again. "World Cup leader Dovizioso will be on his Ducati on Sunday between his biggest title contenders in the starting position. He narrowly missed his pole position at his home Grand Prix, but still showed himself to be happy. "Before the qualifying I did not feel so good," admits the Italian. "When we brought up the new tire for the time hunt, I suddenly felt much more competitive." Dovizioso is confident for the race: "I was able to drive strong lap times, but the lap was really good we have confirmed our speed for the race, but now we have to check the conditions for tomorrow, it looks as if it would be wet or at least mixed. "Jonas Folger is not rewarded -Honda-pilot Cal Crutchlow, who is in the lead with position four in Lauerstellung. The British lacked a good three-tenths of a second at the best time of Vinales. Just behind, Jorge Lorenzo secured his Ducati as a fifth place in the second row, completing MotoGP rookie Johann Zarco (Tech-3-Yamaha) to sixth place. Dani Pedrosa (Honda, 7th), Danilo Petrucci (Pramac-Ducati, 8th), Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia, 9th) as well as Alvaro Bautista (Aspar-Ducati, 10th) were among the top ten in the first qualifying session as the fastest, but profited from the fact that both Jonas Folger (Tech-3-Yamaha) and Jack Miller (Marc-VDS-Honda) their best times were deleted. Both had exceeded the track limits and lost the two top places in Q1. Miller fell back to the 14th grid position, followed by his runners up to 16th place.

For the Germans a disappointment: "It is annoying, after such a difficult weekend finally to find the confidence again and to implement at the right moment, was very important, I was very happy and then the round was deleted "For the KTM drivers Pol Espargaro, who was struggling at his time hunt, and Bradley Smith, the squad 17 and 22 remained at the end of the qualifying session stand. Espargaro could still place in front of the Suzukis, which did not get beyond positions 20 and 21. Andrea Iannone even had to beat his team-mate and MotoGP rookie Alex Rins even before the home crowd. Sam Lowes, who has already dropped four times this weekend with his Aprilia, will be the backstay of the grid.
