Jorge Martín (Madrid, 23 years old) cannot believe it. He is a novice in MotoGP , he is dressed in the suit of the Ducati satellite team, the Pramac, and he has just taken pole position at the Losail circuit, in Qatar, where this Sunday the second consecutive race is held in Qatari lands. the second on the MotoGP calendar. It is a day to remember in my life ”. The sun had fallen and the atmosphere cleared. The storm subsided and despite the amount of sand and dust still on the asphalt on a track built in the middle of the desert, conditions were much better than in the early afternoon.

When asked to compare his first MotoGP pole with his wins in the lower categories, Martin said: “It’s difficult to say because to win is something different.

“To win is the most you can do in a GP and you did the work perfectly.

“For sure the first pole in MotoGP is something different also, but I think it’s much better a win in Moto2 or Moto3 than to make a pole position in MotoGP.”

Martin’s Doha pole comes having only had 10 days on his Ducati MotoGP bike in 2021, following the severely curtailed pre-season.

But the Pramac rider admits he expected a MotoGP bike to be harder to ride than it is so far proving to be for him.

“It’s nice to ride these bikes,” he added. “I mean, I thought it was much more difficult to ride a MotoGP bike.

“For sure at the beginning you feel everything is new and difficult, but you can push actually to another level just because of the tyres, the power, the brakes, the gearbox – everything is better.

MotoGP , Jorge Martin . Free video. Pramac Racing’s rookie soared to MotoGP ™ pole position in just his second ever race, but now attentions turn to race day. It was a better qualifying for Alex Rins and Joan Mir, but they will still have to fight their way up the field for a potential podium.

“So, in the lap I felt quite ok. Maybe the front was already used from the first run and you push a little bit and that’s why I felt on the limit.

“But I wasn’t doing many crazy things and the bike was really stable.”

Martin immediately put thoughts of a maiden MotoGP win on Sunday out his mind after qualifying, and once again reiterated that his practice pace suggests he doesn’t have “the potential” to fight for victory yet.

“Tomorrow I think is the time to be a rookie,” he said of the race.

“I don’t have pressure and not even the potential yet to win because my pace is still… in FP4 for sure we did a step, but still from these [top] guys I’m maybe four tenths [behind].

“So, it’s impossible to think about a win.

“Anything can happen in a race, but I need them to crash, or six or seven riders [to crash], to win and it’s not what I want.

“What I want is to beat them when I am ready."
