Aleix Espargaro celebrates a home pole position for the 2022 Catalunya MotoGP at a scorching hot, and slippery, Barcelona.
The Aprilia rider will be joined on Sunday’s front row by Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati) and Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha).
Reigning champion Quartararo and Bagnaia took the fight to Espargaro, heading the Aprilia rider by the mid-session tyre change, when the top five were covered by just 0.090s.
Bagnaia then delivered the first sub 1m 39s lap of the afternoon to snatch pole with two minutes remaining.
But, fastest since Friday afternoon and having set a new lap record on Saturday morning, Espargaro responded with another new lap record to edge just 0.045s ahead of the Ducati rider.
Johann Zarco, rookie Fabio di Giannantonio and Jorge Martin will form an all-Desmosedici second row, ahead of Suzuki’s Alex Rins.
Maverick Vinales, who joined Takaaki Nakagami in fighting through Qualifying 1, tucked in behind team-mate Espargaro for his final run but couldn’t climb higher than eighth.
Alex Marquez did not take part in qualifying following his fast accident in FP4, with LCR team boss Lucio Cecchinello suggesting he suffered a ‘small concussion’, which would put his home race in doubt.
