INDIANAPOLIS – Marc Marquez will start his quest for his 10th consecutive MotoGP victory from the pole Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Marquez took pole at the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix from Andrea Dovizioso and Jorge Lorenzo, clinching the top spot on the grid at the modified IMS track with a best lap of 1:31.619.

Dovizioso produced a good lap towards the end of Q2 to get within .225 of a second of Marquez in second, whilst Lorenzo was a quarter of a second off pole as he completed the front row.

Aleix Espargaro impressed again in fourth, whilst Valentino Rossi reached his usual target of a top five qualifying position. Aleix’s brother Pol Espargaro was provisionally on the front row but was eventually pushed back to sixth.

Andrea Iannone, Dani Pedrosa and Bradley Smith will line up on row three, provided Smith is fit to ride after a big high side at turn two in the final minutes of Q2.

Stefan Bradl heads the fourth row after topping free practice three earlier in the day. Whilst Scott Redding and Cal Crutchlow made it through from Q1 to qualify 11th and 12th respectively. Substitute rider Leon Camier did well as he rides in place of Nicky Hayden for the Drive M7 Aspar team, qualifying 16th from Q1.
