This, few had seen it coming! this saturday 1Ahem In October, Italian rookie Marco Bezzecchi took the first pole position of his career at the Buriram International Circuit in Thailand.

A breathless end to the session.

In his first season in MotoGP, the Italian bravely bet on setting a canonical time, the circuit’s absolute record of 1’29”671. At the same time, he becomes the 10th driver to take a pole position this season. Symbol that this MotoGP 2022-2023 exercise promises to be undecided until the end.

From the start of Q2, the Ducatis were one step above. First it was Jorge Martin. The Spaniard, a teammate of Johann Zarco, quickly showed that he had something to his credit this Saturday. But Francesco Bagnaia, although he was not happy at the beginning of the session, revealed himself four minutes from the end.

The last three minutes of the second qualifying session were intense with a triple change of poleman where Jorge Martín held the circuit record just a few seconds away.

I am very happy to have tested the Suzuki GSX-RR. I was so nervous because, you know, the bike is unlike anything he’s ever ridden in the past. But it is such a beautiful bike that I really enjoyed it. The truth is that I did not expect the bike to be so good. Of course, it’s all very difficult because the other guys are going very, very fast, and I still have to figure out how to ride this bike and adapt my riding style to it, but I’m very happy and I didn’t expect not to. be so fast from the start.
