Dovizioso shows champion qualities

Andrea Dovizioso again showed why he is the 125cc World Champion with another impressive performance in the final qualifying session of the year at Valencia. The Italian teenager took his eighth pole position of the season with a time of 1'39.927, a comfortable 0.219 seconds clear of his nearest contender Hector Barberá.

Jorge Lorenzo qualified third fastest and will start his final race with Derbi from the front row of the grid, where he is joined by veteran Italian Gino Borsoi, also making his final appearance in the class due to new age restrictions which come into force next season.

Sergio Gadea, the surprise package of yesterday's first qualifying session, eventually improved his time after a slow start today and secured by far his best grid position of the season in fifth place. Gadea starts from the second row ahead of Casey Stoner, Roberto Locatelli and Julian Simon.
