Barbera takes 250cc provisional pole in Malaysia

Hector Barbera topped off an excellent first day at the Sepang Circuit with a provisional pole, after a 2'08.266 lap put him at the head of the 250cc table.

The Spaniard was joined at the top of the leaderboard once again by Jorge Lorenzo, his Fortuna Aprilia team-mate. The current championship leader, one and a half tenths behind Barbera, came in ahead of Hiroshi Aoyama, Roberto Locatelli, title rival Andrea Dovizioso and Alex de Angelis. Shuhei Aoyama, seventh, was more than a second slower than Barbera's provisional pole lap, with Martin Cardenas, Yuki Takahashi and Sylvain Guintoli completing the top ten.
