125: Marquez on pole at Phillip Island

Marc Marquez takes pole position for the 125cc Australian Grand Prix at Phillip Island.
Marc Marquez was not only able to take pole position for the 125cc Australian Grand Prix, his eleventh pole of the year, but also towed Ajo Derbi team-mate Sandro Cortese into second.

Marquez leads the world championship by just three points from Nico Terol, with three races to go, but Terol could only manage fourth on the grid for Aspar Aprilia – having lapped 0.848sec behind Marquez.

Pol Espargaro, the third of the title contenders, was the best non-Ajo rider in third place, 0.755sec from pole and the last rider within one second of Marquez.

Terol's team-mate Bradley Smith will head the second row with Espargaro's team-mate Efren Vasquez starting seventh.

Conditions were dry but still cold and windy.

1. Marquez (Derbi) 1m 38.236s
2. Cortese (Derbi) +0.616s
3. Espargaro (Derbi) +0.755s

The fact that he has been untouchable by a country mile during qualifying sessions most of the time this year shows true pace and riding skills of the young lad! My predictions suggest he is surely going to become a Motogp WC champion within two years once he steps up to the premiers class. Can't wait to see him there with the likes of Rossi and Dani!
