Franco Morbidelli is the fastest to shine, closely followed by his teammate Fabio Quartararo who was the fastest. The Yamaha – traditionally at ease on the Le Mans track – monopolize the outposts with Viñales and Rossi in the Top 5 for the first ten minutes. 

Fabio Quartararo – leader in the provisional with 108 pts against 100 for Joan Mir – hangs the 1’31.665 five minutes from the checkered flag, half a second from Johann Zarco’s absolute circuit record of 1’31.185. Before the final sprint, "El Diablo" is just ahead of Bagnaia, Morbidelli and Viñales. Andrea Dovizioso, very consistent since this morning, is in ambush…

Then Jack Miller made a brilliant lap in 1’31.537 in his final loop, dislodging Fabio Quartararo from first place. The French driver does not let it be fooled and begins a freediving lap which ends with a stopwatch of 1’31.315 during his passage under the checkered flag !

A top 10 in half a second !

The Yamaha SRT-Petronas rider takes his third pole position this season, after those obtained at the GP of Spain and the GP of Andalusia. The n ° 20 will start tomorrow in front of the Ducatis of Jack Miller and Danilo Petrucci, which we had not seen at such a party for some time.

The second row is made up of Cal Crutchlow – despite his arm pain -, Maverick Viñales and Andrea Dovizioso. Francesco Bagnaia, Pol Espargaro and Johann Zarco follow on the third row ahead of Valentino Rossi, admittedly modest 10th but only 0.574 sec behind his future replacement at Yamaha. Rarely has the MotoGP field been so homogeneous !

The MotoGP Grand Prix de France race will exceptionally start on Sunday at 1:00 p.m., after Moto3 (11:20 a.m.) and before Moto2 (2:30 p.m.). Will we see Fabio Quartararo’s fourth victory this season, his first at Le Mans and his second in a row after his success in Catalonia? We cross fingers ! Stay connected !
