Aoyama back on pole

Just six days after taking his maiden win at Motegi, Hiroshi Aoyama was back on top at Sepang on Saturday, clinching pole position in the final qualifying practice of the 250cc Marlboro Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix.

Aoyama and his team-mate Dani Pedrosa, the reigning quarter-litre class Champion and current series leader, relegated provisional pole holder Alex de Angelis to third as the San Marinese rider was unable to improve his qualifying time in the final session. Casey Stoner completed the front row.

Argentine Sebastian Porto was fifth fastest, ahead of Andrea Dovizioso, Randy de Puniet and Hector Barbera. Sylvain Guintoli and Simone Corsi completed the top 10.
