Fabio Quartararo just left Maverick Vinales behind on Saturday Zoom

Fabio Quartararo (Petronas-Yamaha) took pole position for the fourth time this season despite two training crashes. After Le Mans it is the second pole in a row for the current world championship leader. Yamaha works driver Maverick Vinales finished the Aragon qualifying as second fastest. He missed his fourth pole of the season by 0.046 seconds.

Franco Morbidelli on the second Petronas Yamaha missed the front row by just 0.012 seconds and will start from P4 on Sunday. This completes the Yamaha line-up, because Valentino Rossi is in quarantine at home due to his coronavirus infection. The Yamaha works team has not yet nominated a replacement pilot.

Quartararo: tires are more worrying than falling pain

It comes as a surprise that Quartararo just got the upper hand against Vinales in the battle for pole position. After all, the Petronas Yamaha rider fell in both the first free practice and the third free practice and hit the asphalt with his hip in both cases. He started qualifying with pain and still prevailed.

The first of two Quartararo falls: In turn 8 on Friday morning Zoom

“It was basically the same fall twice,” says Quartararo and explains: “In both cases, the front wheel slipped very early in the braking phase. After the fall this morning, my leg hurt while walking. I was worried whether I would even be able to ride in the afternoon. Fortunately, the pain is bearable on the bike. “

The biggest difference between Quartararo’s FT1 and FT3 crashes: The one on Friday happened in turn 8, the one on Saturday in turn 14. In both cases it is a right turn. Apart from the pain that he says can be endured while driving, Quartararo noticed one thing at the weekend so far: the tires are causing him more concern with a view to the race distance.

Tire wear worries the World Championship leader more than pain Zoom

“Physically it won’t be a problem to go through the race. Of course I’ll be in pain, but that’s okay,” says Quartararo and adds: “As far as the tire choice is concerned, nothing is clear to us. We still have to find some things on the bike And also the driving style. At the moment I can drive ten laps fast, but then get into problems. Maverick [Vinales] seems to be much more constant. “

Vinales is pleased with progress on long run

The Vinales mentioned confirms Quartararo’s impression: “It’s going well. We have a good rhythm. Last year we had big problems here in the second half of the race. But this year we found something in the electronics that we especially like the last ten rounds should help. “

Franco Morbidelli declares war on his colleagues Zoom

At the aforementioned Grand Prix of Catalonia three weeks ago, Morbidelli posted eight laps in the lead, but in the end, finishing fourth, not only missed his first victory, but also just missed the podium. He wants to build on the lead laps on Sunday in Motorland Aragon, as he indicated with his FT4 best time.

But: In the long run, does Morbidelli fear similar tire problems as team-mate Quartararo? “Yes, insofar as the soft front tire can surprise you. With these [niedrigen] Temperatures it will probably amount to this mixture. Personally, I also see a few advantages in the medium mix. It will not be easy and will depend mainly on the temperatures. “
