Marquez claims record pole

The Spaniard, who reclaimed his MotoGP title earlier this month with a second-placed finish at the Japanese MotoGP, beat Repsol Honda Team team-mate Dani Pedrosa to first place with a time of one minute 59.791 seconds.
Pedrosa, who topped the time sheets during Friday’s rain-affected practice session, was 0.182secs adrift in second, while Movistar Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo was a further 0.230s back in third to make it a Spanish top-three.
LCR Honda’s Stefan Bradl will start the race in fourth place, ahead of Ducati’s Andrea Dovizioso in fifth and Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) in sixth.
NGM Forward Racing’s Aleix Espargaro beat British pair Cal Crutchlow (Ducati) and Bradley Smith (Monster Yamaha Tech) to seventh, while Alvaro Bautista (GO&FUN Honda Gresini) rounds off the top 10.
