Gabriel Rodrigo has been really fast and consistent throughout all the weekend and he capitalized that pace in qualifying doing a stunning pole position ahead of Ai Ogura and Tony Arbolino.
Firstly, it was Q1 moment where Tatsuki Suzuki has been the fastest guy on track and the only rider under the 1.49, thanks to a great lap during the final minutes of the session. The Japanese, Andrea Migno and Albert Arenas got great benefits from a slipstream which helped them a lot, and the three did their fast lap pretty much at the same time.
Last rider who got a spot for Q2 is Ai Ogura, almost half of a second slower than Suzuki but his lap was enough to be in top 4. Nothing to do for Romano Fenati, who led for a while first session of qualifying, while Celestino Vietti was ruled off by Jakub Kornfeil.
It was then Q2 time, with Gabriel Rodrigo being able to do a fast lap immediately and he is one of the guy who did not improve his lap time in the last minutes. Gresini strategy was not the best indeed as the Argentinian did not have enough time to do a last lap. Anyway, Gabriel did not need that crono as long as the first one was enough for the pole.
Ai Ogura and Tony Arbolino will start alongside him, while Tatsuki Suzuki opens second row. Aron Canet was not able to improve his first time as long as he did a little mistake after having two record intermediate. Albert Arenas is 6th, with Alonso Lopez 7th, Jaume Masia 8th (but he will be penalized) and Lorenzo Dalla Porta 9th; Leopard rider was really unlucky in his last chance being ruled out by Niccolò Antonelli.
