Moto3 qualifying took place in the Czech Republic on Saturday, with World Championship leader Brad Binder claiming pole position. His 2:07.785 lap time was unmatched by the rest of the field, who have seen the South African in strong form so far at Brno.

Pole was awarded to him despite a previous hot lap having been cancelled out for exceeding the track limits. Andrea Migno and Enea Bastianini will accompany Binder on the front row, with Jorge Martín heading row two for the Czech GP.

The Mahindra Pull&Bear Aspar Team were close to getting a rider on the front row in the Czech Republic. In the morning practice session, Jorge Martín took second place behind Brad Binder, and was set for a positive qualifying run.

The Spaniard would lead the timesheets after his fifth lap, a 2:08.138, but was unable to lower his time on a final attempt and would have to settle for fourth -just 0.096s off Bastianini. The place is his joint-best to date in the Moto3 World Championship.

4th Jorge Martín 2.08.138 (12 laps):
“This has been an amazing weekend so far. I’ve been feeling at ease on the bike from the first moment and I have felt very comfortable since the new changes arrived from Mahindra. It was a shame to lose a spot on the front row on the last lap, but I tried until the end. I am happy because we are working very well, but we need some finetuning of some details. I started fourth at Aragon, and it’s not much different from starting third, except for psychologically. I have a good pace and a strong desire to get racing.”
