Luca Marini, VR46 Ducati rider, won pole position at the track in Indonesia. Marini had a great start to the race, it was clear from the beginning that he was very motivated and it paid off in the best possible way. The Italian drove the fastest lap in 1:29.978, which is a record in Mandalika.
The incredible race of this great VR46 Ducati rider announces that he will be very motivated in the main race that will take place on Sunday. Luca Marini will start the 15th race of the MotoGP championship in front of Maverick Viñales and Aleix Espargaró, the rider of Aprilia.
With that alone, he made a very important prerequisite for a good result in the main race. Fabio Quartararo, Brad Binder, Jorge Martin, Fabio Di Giannantonio, Mark Marques, Marco Bezzecchi and Jack Miller will start the Indonesian Grand Prix right behind them.
Jorge Martin is perhaps the biggest favorite considering that he was very good on this track in the past and now he has a chance to catch up with Francesco Bagnaia who failed to pass Q1 much to the surprise of his team. However, Francesco Bagnaia should never be written off because he has convinced us many times during his career that when the least expected of him, he shows great mental strength to win.
Bagnaia is first, but the advantage is very small and there are only six races left until the end of the season
Francesco Bagnaia leads in the general standings, but the advantage is not unattainable for Martin, as only three points separate them.
Martin will have to work really hard if he wants to overtake Francesco Bagnaia because there are only six races left until the end of this Moto GP season. It will be very exciting considering the small difference between the first and the second, and that certainly promises us a very interesting continuation of the competition
The main race in Indonesia is scheduled for Sunday, and all of them are focused on Bagnaia and Martin, but we should not forget Luca Marini and Marco Bezzecchi, who can spoil the plans of this duo.
