Jorge Martin took pole position in the Motogp Malaysian Grand Prix. The Ducati Pramac rider finished with the best time of 1.57.790, a new record on the Sepang track, ahead of Enea Bastianini with the Ducati of Team Gresini and Marc Marquez with the Honda. Bad for the world leader Francesco Bagnaia who finished ninth after the crash in the last minutes of qualifying, while Aleix Eespargarò is tenth and Fabio Quartararo only twelfth. Marco Bezzecchi did well instead, closing with the fourth time followed by Alex Rins and Luca Marini. Then Franco Morbidelli and Maverick Vinales.
Not a positive day for the French Fabio Quartararo who suffered a small fracture in the middle finger of his left hand in qualifying due to a crash. The Yamaha Frenchman appeared sore and with ice on his hand during qualifying.
