Jorge Martin smashes the Misano lap record to take pole position for the San Marino MotoGP by almost 0.4s from fellow Ducati riders and title rivals Marco Bezzecchi and Francesco Bagnaia.

Aprilia's Maverick Vinales, KTM wild-card star Dani Pedrosa and Vinales' team-mate Aleix Espargaro will form row two for today's Sprint and Sunday's grand prix races.

Miguel Oliveira and Aleix Espargaro (who suffered whiplash on Friday) reached Qualifying 2 by fighting their way through Qualifying 1, while the likes of Fabio Quartararo, Johann Zarco and Jack Miller failed to advance.

LCR stand-in Takumi Takahashi did not get within the 105% time in practice and will thus miss out on qualifying and the races.

A MotoGP Miracle for Pecco Bagnaia 🙏

Ducati’s reigning champion Francesco Bagnaia takes a reduced 50-point title lead over Pramac’s Jorge Martin into his and Ducati home Misano round after his shocking accident on the opening lap in Barcelona last weekend.

Bagnaia highsided from the lead and landed in the path of Brad Binder, who couldn’t avoid hitting his legs. Miraculously Bagnaia escaped without any fractures and is back on track this weekend.

Team-mate Enea Bastianini is absent from Misano, India and Japan after fracturing his left hand and ankle after triggering a multi-rider pile-up just moments before Bagnaia’s highside.

Dani Pedrosa is making a second wild-card appearance of the season for KTM, and using a carbon fibre chassis, with fellow test riders Stefan Bradl (Honda) and Michele Pirro (Ducati) also back on track.

LCR Honda’s Alex Rins remains absent due to his Mugello leg injuries and, with Iker Lecuona returning to WorldSBK duty, is replaced by Japanese test rider Takumi Takahashi. Takahashi’s previous MotoGP start was in 2015.
