New pole record for Dovizioso

New pole record for Dovizioso

Andrea Dovizioso continued his dominance of the 125cc World Championship with a new pole position record at Donington Park, clocking 1'37.736 to top the time sheets by over half a second.

Mika Kallio looked on course to dislodge the Italian on his final lap but was baulked by Lukas Pesek in the last corner and had to settle for third fastest, with Pablo Nieto lifting his Aprilia above the Finnish rider into second place. Roberto Locatelli completes the provisional front row after making up eleven positions in his final two laps.

Julian Simon made some of the early running alongside Dovizioso but all his hard work went to waste with just a couple of minutes left when a crash in Craner Curves saw the youngster's fuel tank burst into flames and cause extensive damage to his Honda.

Simon escaped unhurt but slipped to the back of the provisional second row in eighth place behind Youichi Ui, Thomas Luthi and Hector Barberá.
