Clear pole for Márquez at Aragón

Clear pole for Márquez at Aragón

The Team CatalunyaCaixa Repsol rider will start from the head of the grid at the MotorLand circuit after taking his sixth pole of the season with a time over half a second ahead of his closest challenger Julián Simón.

The intermediate class qualifying session before the Gran Premio de Aragón on Sunday saw Marc Márquez crush the competition as he led the times for the entire meet. The young Spaniard’s time of 1'53.296 was 0.684s ahead of second place starter Julián Simón (Mapfre Aspar), who crashed at the end of the session but was up and walking away, and 0.708s ahead of Scott Redding (Marc VDS Racing) who starts on the front row for the first time this season.

Starting from the head of the second row is Viessmann Kiefer Racing man Stefan Bradl, who ran off the track during a fast lap push in the final minutes and thus his earlier time of 1'54.075 earning him the position. Completing the second row is Alex de Angelis (JiR Moto2), who follows the Championship leader by a tenth, and Aleix Espargaró (Pons HP 40), four hundredths behind de Angelis.

Jules Cluzel (NGM Forward Racing) leads the third row and is the last in the field within a second of Márquez, with Pol Espargaró (HP Tuenti Speed Up) and Mika Kallio (Marc VDS Racing) completing row three.

Andrea Iannone (Speed Master) completes the top ten, ahead of Thomas Lüthi (Interwetten Paddock Moto2) and Simone Corsi (Ioda Racing Project).
