Viñales: Yamaha’s first Austrian polesitter since 1988

Maverick Viñales (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) will start from pole position for the 2020 myWorld Austrian Grand Prix, and next up is race day. This is the first pole position for a Yamaha rider at the Red Bull Ring since the track was introduced to the MotoGP™ calendar in 2016, and the first of a Yamaha rider to claim pole in the premier class in Austria since Christian Sarron back in 1988 (Salzburgring). Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team), who is the most successful rider at the Red Bull Ring with two wins, has qualified in fourth place, which is his worst qualifying result at the track so far. Pol Espargaro (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) has qualified in fifth place which is his best qualifying result since he was second in Misano last year, as well as the best qualifying result of a KTM rider at the Red Bull Ring. This is the first time there is no Honda riders on the front two rows of the grid in MotoGP™ at the Red Bull Ring.
