Mapfre Aspar rider Alvaro Bautista won his third pole position of the season in a closely fought battle with Simoncelli and Barbera who will start tomorrow’s race from 2nd and 3rd on the grid. Current second-placed rider in the championship, Hiroshi Aoyama, took the final spot of the front row. With all four riders having won one race each it is likely that the Italian GP will see the first double winner of the season.
Bautista’s teammate Mike Di Meglio continued to struggle with the setup for the Italian track and finished the qualifying only in 14th position.
Hungarian rider Balazs Nemeth qualified 22nd and will be happy about that achievement, riding the 250cc Aprilia only the second day ever.
