09 Sep Marquez on front row at Misano, Dani Pedrosa seventh
Marc Marquez will start from the front row in tomorrow’s Gran Premio di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini, knowing that he has a good pace to fight at the front.
Marc had been the quickest rider in the FP3 session, and the second fastest in FP4. During qualifying, he recorded his fastest time on his first flying lap but a crash during his second exit prevented him from improving upon it. He finished in third, just 0.197” off pole position.
Dani was eighth in FP3, and progressed to sixth in FP4 before recording the seventh-quickest lap time in qualifying, just over half a second down from the top.
The weather forecast indicates the possibility of thunderstorms and a drop in temperature for tomorrow’s race, which is scheduled for 2 p.m. local time.
