Qualifying for the Spanish MotoGP was very productive for the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team today with 15th position for Pol Espargaro aboard his KTM RC16. It’s the best qualifying so far for the Austrian prototype bikes in only the fourth race for KTM in MotoGP, ultimately with a time set just over one second back from pole position.

Pol Espargaro:

“All the team is doing such a big effort but I want to remember the guys back in the factory who are not on TV, working hard behind the scenes. What we are doing is thanks to them as factory and race team work so hard together to get a result that some people thought would not happen. In FP4 we were 9th, run at the same time of day as the race, but my time was done with a tyre that was not so new so I think this time is quite good for a longer run, but the effort and the things the team is doing is unbelievable.”
