De Angelis storms to pole position

Alex de Angelis clinched his second pole position of the year at Istanbul, edging out Australian Casey Stoner in the final qualifying session.

The Australian failed to beat the time set by his Aprilia factory colleague when he made a mistake on his final flying lap. Movistar Honda riders Hiroshi Aoyama and World Champion Dani Pedrosa posted the third and fourth fastest respectively to complete the front row.

Provisional pole setter Sebastian Porto wasn't able to improve on his Friday qualifying time and had to settle for fifth on the grid. The Argentine will start ahead of Hector Barbera, Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Dovizioso, while Roberto Locatelli and Randy de Puniet completed the top 10.
