2013 Mugello Moto3 Qualifying Results

Germany’s Jonas Folger will start on pole position for the Moto3 Gran Premio d’Italia TIM at Mugello. The Mapfre Aspar Team Moto3 rider beat championship leader Maverick Vinales by less than one tenth of a second as Alex Rins completed the front row.

Folger, who is currently fourth in the championship standings, had led the opening practice session on Friday, and once again returned to the top courtesy of his late 1’57.603 lap time.

Team Calvo’s Vinales is well placed to defend his lead in the title race, whereas Rins starts on the front row for the fourth time in three races so far this year. Row 2 will be occupied by Caretta Technology – RTG’s Jack Miller, Red Bull KTM Ajo’s Luis Salom and Mahindra Racing’s Miguel Oliveira.

GO&FUN Honda Gresini Moto3’s Niccolo Antonelli will be the leading Italian rider on the grid from seventh spot, hoping to defend off the start line from Redox RW Racing GP’s Jakub Kornfeil (who missed second practice due to labyrinthitis, an inner ear complaint), Ambrogio Racing’s Danny Webb (who returns after suffering concussion at Le Mans) and Estrella Galicia 0,0’s Alex Marquez. In 31st spot, Mahindra’s Efren Vazquez continued to suffer pain from his broken right collarbone.
