Bautista on Japanese provisional pole

Alvaro Bautista is still the man to beat in 125cc. After setting the fastest time this morning in the opening free practice session at Twin Ring Motegi, the newly-crowned World Champion once again topped the leaderboard in qualifying and took provisional pole for Sunday's A-Style Grand Pix of Japan. The only rider to break the 1'58 barrier, Bautista came in ahead of team-mate Sergio Gadea with a lap of 1'57.627. In third, Mika Kallio was the only rider in the top five not to hail from the Master MVA Aspar team, in front of Mattia Pasini, Hector Faubel and Julian Simon. Fabrizio Lai, Lukas Pesek, Tomoyoshi Koyama and Gabor Talmacsi completed the top ten.
