Mugello Moto3: Fenati cruises to pole
Romano Fenati took his second pole of the Moto3 season at Mugello as drama behind saw Andrea Migno finish second and Khairul Idham Pawi complete the front row.
Mahindra's Francesco Bagnaia initially took second place to record his best grid slot, but following a track limit infringement at Turn 9, the Italian lost six places to drop to eighth.
Up ahead, Sky's Fenati, having taken the lead of the timing sheets midway into the session, improved further to keep first place and clinch pole with a time of 1m57.289s.
With Bagnaia's losing his place, Fenati's teammate Migno moved to second while Argentina race winner Pawi took third.
Championship leader Brad Binder was fourth, just ahead of his title rival Jorge Navarro, who completed the top five - Navarro misjudging his final run and arriving at the chequered flag on a warm-up lap.
Enea Bastianini was sixth ahead of Nicolo Bulega, with Bagnaia slotting in eighth after losing his best lap.
The top 10 was completed by Aron Canet and Joan Mir.
Practice pacesetter Niccolo Antonelli suffered a heavy crash at Turn 15, clipping the kerb and falling off his bike, which went straight into the wall at high speed, its suspension snapping virtually in half.
