Remy Gardner will start tomorrow’s Moto2 race from pole position after securing a new all-time Moto2 lap record in Andalusia. 

It’s the fourth pole of the 23 year-old’s career, while the last pole came at Portimao in 2020 - a race he won. 

Speaking after qualifying, Gardner said: "Yeah, honestly the bike is working well from FP1. We haven’t really moved too far away from the bike we started with. 

"It’s all been pretty smooth sailing. I managed to do a decent lap in the morning and the afternoon with the soft option that Dunlop brought. 

"There was probably another two tenths to come out of it, but I just made a few mistakes. 

"Anyway, I got the pole so I can’t complain. I’m happy, and we have good race pace for tomorrow." 

During the post qualifying press conference, there was a fun moment shared between the Aussie duo of Gardner and Jack Miller, when the former was asked about similarities to his dad Wayne Gardner. 

Gardner doesn’t believe the two can be compared much, especially on how they approach racing. 

"Probably a little bit different if I’m being honest. Maybe on the track it’s similar at times, but I think the way I approach things in the box and mentally is completely different to my dad, if I say so myself," according to Gardner. 

And while Miller agreed with his younger countryman about off track similarities, Miller had a ripper of an answer for Gardner: "Ah, I think anybody watching from the outside… well his approach is for sure different to Wayne, but the riding style, I think you see that dog in him, the aggression, the bike bucking and weaving. 

"If you watch Wayne back in the day, it’s like a spitting image. Both just pinning it and it looks good."
