Have a man on your feet who can figure out how the starting order for the Touragon World Cup races in Aragon has developed. Even the timing training was not smooth, as Q2 could start with a significant slippage due to a timing system failure.
The chaos was compounded by the fines imposed so far, as well as the dismissals and the judgments handed down in connection with them. In any case, Norbert Michelisz was able to keep his first place in Q1, which means he could start from the lead in the first race on Sunday morning – for the first time this year.
The reigning World Cup winner was rebuked for leaving the track, but his laps were returned afterwards, and although he could have reached Q3, he was ranked sixth overall, giving him a 5th and 6th place in the second and second rounds. for the third race.
It seemed that even in two races a Hungarian driver could stand in the pole position, after Bence Boldizs was ranked 10th at the end of Q2. But along with the Zengő Motorsport rider, Michelisz and Luca Engstler were also left without a measured time – but according to a rule, the Q1 ranking is the authoritative one, and Michelisz was ahead of everyone there.
Following a series of variations, Boldizs can start all three races from the 12th cube, while his Spanish teammate Mikel Azcona can start on the podium with hopes: he can start the first race from fifth place, the second from the edge and the last race from 10th. el.
Last but not least, the best time of Jean-Karl Vernay, who won his first Alfa Romeo pole, was taken away, as a result of which Gilles Magnus, who dominates free practice, could cut him from the first starting block for the third race.
The league aspirants were bleeding: list leader Yann Ehrlacher could only start the opening race from the end of the field and the other two from 13th position due to an engine change, while his closest chaser, 22-point disadvantage Esteban Guerrieri with a smashed Honda only a 16th and two 19th. he could scrape together a place for Sunday.
Attila Tassi’s weekend also weighed down Honda’s weight loss: the Hungarian driver could stand once in the 18th and twice in the 20th, and all three times the fourth Hungarian in the field, Gábor Kismarty-Lechner, could start next to him.
On Sunday, the races will start at 9:15, 12:15 and 14:15, some will be broadcast live by Sport 1, and the first two will also be broadcast by Eurosport 2.
