MUGELLO, Italy – Another race, another pole for MotoGP star Marc Marquez.

A 1:47.270 lap gave Marquez his sixth consecutive pole this year and his seventh successive top grid spot including Valencia last year, as his perfect form continued. Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) and Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) will join Marquez on the front row for Sunday’s event at the Mugello Circuit.

Excellent effort from Iannone  saw him show his pace again to get his first premier class front row start, the perfect response to his two recent DNF results and an ideal performance from an Italian rider on an Italian bike at the Gran Premio d’Italia TIM. Lorenzo got his third row one result of the year in third as he lapped a quarter of a second off Marquez.

Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda) still holds the pole record at Mugello and he qualified in fourth position. A big crash on an out lap ended Monster Yamaha Tech3 rider Pol Espargaro’s session early as he went down at turn nine and was clearly annoyed, but the Spaniard was unhurt and still ended up fifth on the grid.

A good qualifying result for Cal Crutchlow in sixth saw him outperform teammate Andrea Dovizioso, who was eighth.
