Francesco Bagnaia ITA Ducati 1m 46.322s (2020)
Fastest race lap:
Franco Morbidelli ITA Yamaha 1m 48.089s (2020)

Francesco Bagnaia will begin his quest for a fifth MotoGP win in a row from pole position at Aragon, where he will be joined on the front row by fellow Ducati riders Jack Miller and Enea Bastianini.

Having advanced through Q1, Aprilia's title contender Aleix Espargaro got sideways into Turn 1 at the start of his final run, but kept his cool and went on to briefly snatch second place, which became fourth after the factory Ducati surge.

A frustrated reigning champion and current title leader Fabio Quartararo will also start from the second row, in sixth, after pushing his M1 to the limit, including a leg-off moment.

Marc Marquez failed to progress past Qualifying 1 on his MotoGP comeback and will start from 13th place. Maverick Vinales was another high-profile Q2 absentee, suffering his first fall during a grand prix weekend this season.

Yamaha test rider Cal Crutchlow outpaced both Franco Morbidelli and Darryn Binder on his 2022 qualifying debut, making the Englishman the next best M1 rider after Quartararo.

Joan Mir abandoned his return from ankle injuries and has also withdrawn from next weekend's Motegi round, after struggling with 'a severe lack of mobility and an increase in pain' during free practice.

Francesco Bagnaia is seeking a 5th win in a row this weekend, as he returns to the scene of his debut MotoGP victory at Aragon last season.

But the big news is that Marc Marquez, the rider Bagnaia narrowly beat one year ago, will be returning to race action for the first time since Mugello in May, after which he underwent a fourth operation to improve mobility and reduce pain in his beleaguered right arm.

Reigning champion and title leader Fabio Quartararo faces what has proven to be one of his toughest circuits - a best of fifth in 2019 and only eighth last year - with a reduced 30 point lead over Bagnaia.

Aleix Espargaro – now pushed to third in the standings by Bagnaia’s rise - could be another one to watch, with Aragon traditionally one of his best events of the season on the Aprilia.

Team-mate Maverick Vinales is also on red-hot form, with RS-GP podiums in three of the last four rounds.

After missing Misano due to ankle injuries from Austria, Joan Mir rejoins Alex Rins at Suzuki.

With Andrea Dovizioso hanging up his leathers after Misano, triple MotoGP race winner and current Yamaha test rider Cal Crutchlow is taking over the RNF seat for the final six rounds of this season.
