Moto2: Simon on pole in Malaysia

Julian Simon takes pole position for the Malaysian Moto2 Grand Prix at Sepang.
Julian Simon will try to make Toni Elias wait at least a week before celebrating Moto2 title victory, after taking pole position at Sepang on Saturday.

Elias is 81 points ahead of Simon and will be a world champion for the first time if he can leave Sepang with a lead of at least 76 points.

Elias will start from the outside of the front row in fourth for Gresini Moriwaki, with Alex de Angelis (JiR) and Thomas Luthi (Interwetten) between the two title rivals.

Sepang is Simon's third pole of the year, but he is yet to take a Moto2 race win - which will be his main goal on Sunday.

Qualifying - Sepang:

1. Simon (Suter) 2m 8.562s
2. de Angelis (MotoBI) +0.192s
3. Luthi (Moriwaki) +0.298s
4. Elias (Moriwaki) +0.301s
5. Rolfo (Suter) +0.358s
6. Iannone (Speed Up) +0.442s
7. Abraham (FTR) +0.625s
8. Redding (Suter) +0.773s
9. Ranseder (Suter) +0.847s
10. Debon (FTR) +0.867s

Really looking forward to what should be another cracking Moto2 race. I'd like to see Elias claim the championship tomorrow and Honda reward him with a ride on Pedrosa's bike at Phillip Island if Dani's still unfit. I hope Redding has the race set up to mix it with the front runners again too.

without any doubt, scott is a very fast rider - just look at his qualifying position of late. but his consistency and pace on race trim has been questionable at best. with respect to his ability (and avid fans), he needs to overcome this before he can challenge for the title next year. able to ride fast and win is one thing, but to do it consistently is another matter. just ask andrea iannone.
