Francesco Bagnaia has qualified for pole position for the 10th time in MotoGP, setting a new historical record for a lap in Assen, and for the fourth time this season with Spain, France and Germany. Curious fact: with the number 63 of Bagnaia, this is the 63rd pole of Ducati in MotoGP. Of his previous nine poles, Bagnaia has achieved six podiums, including four victories and has fallen three times in the fight for victory at the 2021 Emilia-Romagna GP and in France and Germany this season.
This is the fourth pole of MotoGP Ducati in Assen with Loris Capirossi (2003), Casey Stoner (2008) i Andrea Dovizioso (2016). The 2021 world runner-up will aim to deliver Ducati his second victory at Assen with Stoner in 2008.
Fabio Quartararo is second in its fifth front row of the season with Indonesia, Spain, Catalonia and Germany. He took the podium in all these races, including two victories, in Catalonia and Germany. This is the 41st front row of Quartararo in MotoGP. In his previous 40 front rows, he has climbed the podium 23 times, including nine of his 11 queen-class victories. Quartararo will try to become the first pilot Yamaha to achieve three victories in three successive MotoGP races since then Jorge Lorenzo in 2015, which won four from Spain in Catalonia.
Since 2011, the winner of the MotoGP race in the Dutch TT has alternately been a rider Yamaha and a pilot Honda : odd years for Yamaha, even years for Honda. In 2021, Quartararo won the race with a Yamaha. However, with Takaaki Nakagamithe first Honda rider in 12th position, it is the first time that there is no Honda among the top 11 in Assen since Honda returned full time to the queen class in 1982.
