The Italian Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati) signed his third pole position of the season this Saturday, at the German Grand Prix, ahead of the current French world champion and championship leader, Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha), second.
Another Frenchman, Johann Zarco (Ducati-Pramac), will start in third position in this tenth heat of the season.
The Spanish Aleix Espargaró (Aprilia), for the moment second overall, the Italian Fabio Di Giannantonio (Ducati-Gresini) and the Australian Jack Miller (Ducati) make up the second row on the grid.
As in Catalonia at the beginning of June, the Italian Enea Bastianini (Ducati-Gresini), provisionally third in the championship, signed another bad operation and will start on Sunday in 17th place.
