Moto3 championship leader Jorge Martin has taken his eleventh pole position for tomorrow’s Spanish Grand Prix at Jerez, holding off Philipp Oettl and teammate Fabio Di Giannantonio to start tomorrow’s race at the front.

However, with hot temperatures making for a tough weekend at his home race, Martin says that converting the pole into another race win won’t be an easy task.

“It has been a difficult weekend, both due to weather and track conditions. We worked hard with the team to find back the feeling we had during winter testing and it wasn’t easy. Obviously I’m very happy with this eleventh-career pole, but tomorrow it won’t be easy: it’ll be important to do well in warm up already, as we lack some grip at the rear end and we must find it in order to be competitive.”

Niccolo Antonelli heads the second row from Marco Bezzecchi and Andrea Migno, while Alonso Lopez, Enea Bastianini, Lorenzo Dalla Porta and Tatsuki Suzuki rounded out the top ten. Brit John McPhee will start from 17th.
