Marc Marquez snatches pole

Spanish sensation Marc Marquez has scorched to pole position, setting a lap record in the Malaysian MotoGP.

The MotoGP Championship leader Marquez cracked his #1 starting position for the fourth race in succession.

Valentino Rossi was second fastest with Cal Crutchlow third.

Marquez scorched around the Sepang circuit in 2:0.011s with his final tour.

He made a mistake on his penultimate lap that left him with little margin for error on his final attempt.

“I’m really happy with this pole position, particularly as earning it was a little different to with my previous poles,” Marquez said.

“At the start of qualifying there were two completely wet corners, which made it hard to put in a hot lap as we had to calculate the amount of risk, whilst still maintaining our speed.

Jorge Lorenzo was fourth fastest ahead of Dani Pedrosa with Alvero Bautista sixth.
