Jorge Martín scored his first pole in MotoGP at the Losail Circuit, which is only his second Grand Prix in the premier class

The Spaniard was already one of the sensations in his first race in MotoGP, after starring in a dizzying start that led him to climb 10 positions to place himself in fourth position at the first corner.

With a grand prize already behind him, Martín was being one of the prominent names this weekend, having gotten into the top 5 on Friday and achieving a direct pass to the Q2.

The Madrilenian went all out in the standings and was at the top from the beginning. In the last arreón he was overtaken by Maverick Viñales and Johann Zarco, but Martín was able to respond with the clock to zero to get his first pole in MotoGP.

“The objective was to enter Q2 and I did not expect to make pole,” he acknowledged Martin. “When I saw that I was first, I thought that the lap was not so good. Then it was difficult, because Pecco did not throw [Bagnaia] and the tires were getting cold. In the end I shot, I made no mistakes and we are taking steps forward “.

“When I passed in 53.1 I thought I was going to be in the front row, but I didn’t see it on the sign and I went off the track at the end of the straight. Then I saw my number go up on top of everything, it was brutal, “he explained.

The #89 is taking giant steps in MotoGP. After a race where he was less, this time he hopes to better manage to go ahead.

“The improvement I’m making day by day is incredible, I don’t have to say anything, it shows in the times, I don’t focus on positions. I hope to get ahead to the first corner so as not to lose the pole advantage. Being in front allows you to manage the tires a little more, “he said.

However, after his first pole, Martín is still not looking to fight to win.

“My pace is three or four tenths short. Winning is not the goal for tomorrow, that is obvious, but I will be hooked on those who pass me and if I make a top 6 I think it will be very important. There are very strong pace drivers, like Maverick or Mir who are behind, I hope to reach them at the end ”, he settled.
