28 Octobre, 2020, 08:52 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Binder est le premier débutant à s'imposer depuis Marc Marquez (2013). L'Italien a devancé les deux Français Johann Zarco (Reale Avintia Racing, +0 " 016) et Fabio Quartararo (Petronas Yamaha SRT, +0 " 097) qui seront en lice tout à l'heure pour décrocher une place en première ligne (Q2 à partir de 14h35).

Brad Binder, 24 ans, est entré dans la légende du sport sud-africain, ce 9 août 2020 à Brno en République tchèque, en devenant le tout premier pilote de MotoGP de son pays à remporter un Grand Prix dans l'actuelle compétition reine des courses de moto. "Les essais libres 1 à 3 n'ont pas été bons mais les essais libres 4 me laissaient penser qu'on pourrait se battre pour le podium ou la victoire".

"Je me suis demandé si j'étais toujours dans le rythme et, aujourd'hui, c'était le cas, c'est un sentiment génial", s'est-il félicité.

"Je ne m'attendais pas à faire la pole, n'a-t-il pas caché".

Cette sixième pole en MotoGP, la première depuis 2018, arrive après une année 2019 compliquée pour Zarco, qui s'était séparé de KTM en milieu de saison faute de résultats.

Le pilote de 30 ans a retrouvé en 2020 une place de titulaire au sein de l'une des équipes satellite de Ducati, Avintia, qui n'avait encore jamais connu les honneurs de la pole. "Compter sur la victoire maintenant, c'est encore un objectif bien trop haut, concède le Français".

Ces résultats sont une surprise à plusieurs niveaux. À noter également la présence en dixième position de l'Italien Valentino Rossi (Yamaha), qui peut conquérir son 200e podium parmi l'élite, après être remonté sur la boîte pour la première fois depuis quinze mois il y a deux semaines en Espagne.
