The Italian racer Marco Bezzecchi (Ducati VR46) is the winner of qualifying in the elite motoGP class before the Thai Grand Prix. It is also the first so-called pole position for the Italian legend Valentino Rossi’s team.
Alongside Bezzecchi, Jorge Martin (Ducati Pramac) and Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati) will start Sunday’s race from the front row.
Overall leader Frenchman Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha), who has an 18-point lead over Bagnaio with four races to go, will start from fourth.
Third overall, Spaniard Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia) crashed out of the first qualifying group at the Chang circuit in Buriram, around 400 kilometers from Bangkok, and will start Sunday’s race from 13th place.
The winner of the previous race for the Japanese Grand Prix in Motegi, Australian Jack Miller (Ducati), finished this time’s qualifications in seventh place.
On Sunday, due to the coronavirus, Thailand will again witness a race in the most elite class of motorcycling for the first time since 2019.
