Brno, Czech Republic: Repsol Honda rider Marc Marquez appeared as the fastest in the 2019 Czech Republic MotoGP qualifying session which took place at the Brno Circuit. The Spaniard successfully recorded a time of 2 minutes 2.753 seconds which outperformed his competitors.
Throughout Saturday, Marquez actually always displayed an impressive performance. How not, because since the third free practice session, the racer nicknamed The Baby Alien always occupies the first position and it continues to carry over to the qualifying session.
Marquez’s good record was unfortunately unable to be followed by Monster Energy Yamaha racer, Maverick Vinales. After displaying consistent performance in the front row in the three and four free practice sessions, the racer nicknamed The Top Gun must instead end up in the ninth position in the qualifying session. Even worse, Vinales even left almost four seconds behind Marquez.
The surprising result was actually achieved by the Red Bull KTM racer, Johann Zarco. Because, throughout the 2019 MotoGP season, only this time he was able to penetrate the first qualifying session. Not wasting these opportunities, Zarco managed to occupy the third position in the qualification.
Meanwhile, the second position belongs to Pramac Ducati racer Jack Miller. This is actually also a surprise. Because throughout this weekend Miller’s performance is arguably unstable. Even so, in the qualifying session, the Australian driver was able to prove himself.
