Lorenzo's QP1 time enough for 250cc pole

Jorge Lorenzo's 1'57.841 lap from yesterday's dry session was enough to give the Spaniard pole position for tomorrow's 250cc Grand Prix of Turkey. The Fortuna Aprilia rider took the front spot just over a second ahead of nearest rival Alex de Angelis, with Andrea Dovizioso completing the front row. In today's second qualifying session the Spaniard crashed early on without any lasting ill-effects.

Dovizioso's team-mate Yuki Takahashi was fourth, ahead of Hector Barbera and Hiroshi Aoyama. Marco Simoncelli, Sylvain Guintoli, Sebas Porto and Jakub Smrz completed the top ten.
