MotoGP™
Marc Marquez has qualified on pole for the third successive time at the Red Bull Ring since 2017. The Red Bull Ring is the only circuit on
the current MotoGP™ calendar where Marquez has not won in the premier class.
This is the 59th pole position for Marc Marquez on what is his 119th start in the premier class (49.6%) and he is now the rider with the
most pole positions in the premier class of Grand Prix racing, moving above Mick Doohan (58 pole positions).
In addition, this is Marc Marquez’ 87th pole position on what is the 197th start in his Grand Prix career (44.2%).
Fabio Quartararo has qualified in second place as the highest-placed Yamaha and Independent Team rider. This is the best qualifying
result for a Yamaha rider at the Red Bull Ring in MotoGP™, equalling Valentino Rossi, who was the second-fastest qualifier back in 2016.
Quartararo will be aiming to better Yamaha's best ever position at the track which was taken by Jorge Lorenzo, third in 2016.
Andrea Dovizioso, who has finished on the podium over the last three years at the Red Bull Ring including a win in 2017, has qualified in
third place. This is Dovizioso’s third front row start since the opening race in Qatar and the first since Argentina. Ducati have taken all
three MotoGP™ wins at the Red Bull Ring since 2016.

last year.

score his first points at the Red Bull Ring.
Valentino Rossi heads the fourth row of the gird in 10th place, which is the sixth time this year he has qualified within the top ten. The
Red Bull Ring is only the second circuit on the current Grand Prix calendar, along with Buriram, where Rossi has not had a podium finish
in the premier class.
Pol Espargaro has qualified in 11th place as the highest-placed KTM rider. This is the best qualifying result for a KTM rider at the Red
Bull Ring in the MotoGP™ class.
After a crash in Q2, Danilo Petrucci completes the fourth row of the grid, equalling his worst qualifying result of the year so far from
Germany.

in the premier class of Grand Prix racing.

This is the second front row start for a Thai rider in Moto2™ along with Ratthapark Wilairot, who was the second-fastest qualifier at the
Dutch TT back in 2010, and it's the first in Grand Prix racing since Nakarin Atiratphuvapat in Moto3™ last year at Valencia.
