Marc Marquez continued his sensational run in the MotoGP World Championship by scoring pole position for the British Grand Prix.

The Spaniard waged a tight battle with countryman Jorge Lorenzo during the closing stages of qualifying at the Silverstone circuit, eventually emerging 0.13s faster.

Local hope Cal Crutchlow bounced back from a pair of morning practice crashes to secure the outside front-row spot.

The Tech 3 Yamaha rider’s best effort proved almost three quarters of a second away from Marquez’s pace, which reset Casey Stoner’s track record from 2011.

LCR Honda’s Stefan Bradl beat his factory counterpart Dani Pedrosa into fourth, while Valentino Rossi will complete the second row.

The factory Ducatis of Andrea Dovizioso and Nicky Hayden sandwich Alvaro Bautista’s Gresini Honda on the third row, while the second of the Britons, Bradley Smith, completes the top 10.
