2011 Moto2

Stefan Bradl (Viessmann Kiefer Racing) took his seventh pole position of the season – and his first since the Assen GP – with a best effort of 1:37.828 at Misano, San Marino, leaving his closest rival Marc Marquez (Team CatalunyaCaixa Repsol) trailing by 0.256s. The German was the only rider in the Moto2 class to break the 1:38 barrier.

Marquez pushed a bit too hard at the start of the session and had a fall, but was able to rejoin the meet, posting a time of 1:38.084 on his final lap which put the Spaniard second on the grid. Yuki Takahashi (Gresini Racing) followed Márquez with a time of 1:38.340 to take the third spot on the grid, making this the Japanese rider’s fourth front row grid position of the season.

Two Brits occupy the second row, with Scott Redding (Marc VDS Racing) leading after posting a time of 1:38.364, Bradley Smith (Tech 3 Racing) completing the row with a 1:38.535 lap time and San Marino local Alex De Angelis (JiR Moto2) between the two with a posted time of 1:38.461.

Speed Master’s Andrea Iannone crashed out of the session in turn two, but rejoined the outing to post the seventh fastest time, putting the Italian at the head of row three for the race start. Michele Pirro (Gresini Racing Moto2) and Pol Espargaro (HP Tuenti Speed Up) join Iannone on the third row. Row four is led by Thomas Lüthi (Interwetten Paddock Moto2), with Jules Cluzel (NGM Forward Racing) and Aleix Espargaró (Pons HP 40) joining the Swiss rider.
