Martin Converts Early Weekend Practice to Pole Position

March 9, 2024Ray Milton

Jorge Martin is riding with a purpose in Qatar this weekend. Martin topped Q2 setting a 1m50.789s edging out Aleix Espargaro by 0.083s. The two have traded positions all weekend so we are in for some tight racing between Martin on his Prima Pramac Racing Ducati and Espargaro on his Aprilia. The Ducati factory team has been a bit quiet this weekend despite finishing 3rd with Enea Bastianini and 5th with reigning champion Francesco Bagnaia. Brad Binder (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) split the Ducatis in 4th place. Next up is the Tissot Sprint race in a few hours time.
