2013 Misano MotoGP QP Result: Grab A Pole And Smash It

Results Below

 

Marc Marquez, not content to simply grab the pole at the Misano circuit, used it as weapon on Saturday smashing both Casey Stoner's lap record and his rivals' optimism. Marquez's time of 1'32.915 put him clear of second-place qualifying Jorge Lorenzo by half a second. Valentino Rossi delighted his home fans by grabbing the final spot on the front row, a tenth of a second from teammate Lorenzo's fast lap.

Dani Pedrosa, off the pace for much of the qualifying session, managed a handful of fast laps and climbed into in the first spot in the second row, bumping Cal Crutchlow to fifth. Crutchlow, who spent much of practice lingering in the neighborhood of 12th (and who wasn't even the fastest rider in Q1) found something in final qualifying to get his Yamaha onto the middle of the second row.

And rounding out the second row is the surprise of the weekend: Aleix Espargaro qualified his CRT Aprilia in sixth position in front of seven prototype bikes and just over a second from the top spot.
