Dovizioso repeats provisional pole at Motegi

Andrea Dovizioso dominated the first qualifying session for the 125cc class at Motegi and hung onto provisional pole position after a late attack from Casey Stoner.

Dovizioso was also quickest in the morning free practice on his Honda, making a clear statement of his intentions as he looks to defend a 29-point advantage over Aprilia's Hector Barberá at the top of the standings. Barberá was third fastest today, whilst Mika Kallio joined KTM team-mate Stoner on the provisional front row.

Roberto Locatelli, almost certainly the only rider other than Barberá with a chance of challenging Dovizioso for the title, was fifth fastest and heads up the provisional second row from Jorge Lorenzo, Gabor Talmacsi and Lukas Pesek.
