125: Marquez claims Aragon pole

125cc title leader Marc Marquez flattened the opposition to claim his eighth 2010 pole, from twelve attempts, by over half a second at Aragon on Saturday.

The Red Bull Ajo Derbi rider - who starts Sunday's race with a nine-point lead over Nico Terol and 20-point advantage over Pol Espargaro – set his best time on lap 13 of 15, with team-mate Sandro Cortese making it a perfect day for the Ajo team in second place, 0.563sec from Marquez.

Terol qualified third for Aspar Aprilia, with Efren Vasquez denying his Tuenti Derbi team-mate Espargaro a place on the front row. Double 2010 pole sitter Bradley Smith will start sixth on the second Aspar machine.

Qualifying - Aragon:

1. Marquez (Derbi) 1m 59.335s
2. Cortese (Derbi) +0.563s
3. Terol (Aprilia) +0.635s
4. Vazquez (Derbi) +0.930s
5. Espargaro (Derbi) +0.959s
6. Smith (Aprilia) +1.082s
7. Krummenacher (Aprilia) +1.507s
8. Zarco (Aprilia) +1.946s
9. Folger (Aprilia) +1.997s
10. Koyama (Aprilia) +2.004s

And where would Smith go?, he'd be made mincemeat of in Moto 2 or WSS. Fact is that he can be fast but he can't race or tough it out in traffic, never could and probably never will. 125's is as far as he's going to get at WC level and there'll always be someone Spanish or Italian who'll be quicker.

No holding young Marc back.Love it or hate it,the Spanish conveyor belt is really well oiled. Great rider and definitely an 'alien' apparent. Good racing and good luck to all in 125 tomorrow.
