It was an incredibly tight qualifying session with just half a second separating the top eleven riders. Marc secured pole position on his final lap of the session (6 of 7) with a time of 1’55.585, just 0.058 off the 2013 pole record (1’55.527, Crutchlow). Dani missed out on a front row start by just 0.084 with his time of 1’55.812, which he also recorded on lap 6 of 7.

Tomorrow’s race will start at 14h00 local time.

Marc Marquez
1st - 1'55.585
"I'm happy about the pole position today. I had Iannone behind me so the only solution was to push, because I had to set a hot lap. As for tomorrow's race, we have pole but the toughest rivals will start from the second row, especially Dani. We will see what condition Valentino is in and hopefully he can ride well, because he has also been strong this weekend and I hope Jorge can be in the fight too. I'm expecting a tough battle from start to finish for the win”

Dani Pedrosa
5th - 1'55.812
"Today was positive as it didn't rain and we were able to try out tyres in the dry. We are pretty clear now about which direction we will go for the race. It was a pity that we couldn't get a spot on the front row in qualifying, but it was difficult because the times were extremely close. I hope I can make a good start tomorrow and have a good race”
