Rain hands Lorenzo seventh pole of the season

"Today I became the Spanish rider with the most poles of all time, joint with Aspar, and this is a great honour for me, I feel very proud."

"Our seventh pole of the season, but without actually qualifying!" added team manager Wilco Zeelenberg. "Jorge had quite a big crash this morning when he was pushing quite hard and lost the rear, but he is fine and this is all that matters.

"We wanted to improve our pace in the wet conditions a bit more; when it's drying up we're okay but when it's really wet we're struggling a bit with the rear feeling, so we need to work on this tomorrow morning if possible. Of course we don't know how the weather will be so we will just have to wait and see."

Lorenzo will be joined on the front row of tomorrow's grid by Ducati's Nicky Hayden and the second Fiat Yamaha of Valentino Rossi.

Hayden's team-mate Casey Stoner, winner of three of the last four races, heads row two.

Like Lorenzo, Stoner and Hayden also fell on Saturday morning.

quote: What a sad little twerp... As usual, he only wins because of his good luck. Wait until tomorrow when VR gives him the good news!!!! Typical pathetic Rossi muppet. People like you are all that is bad about MotoGP today...only interested in your beloved rossi who really couldn't give a toss about you, you idiot. Face it, Rossi was beaten by Lorenzo BEFORE he crashed in June, but idiots like you can't ever see it. the sooner Rossi gets stuffed and goes to F1 the better..We'll get rid of idiots like you who know nothing about bike racing. your sort ruin a good sport.

Im a Rossi fan, have seen and even met him. DOnt expect any accolades for that its just a fact. I was a Rossi fan watching him scratch about with Capirex and Biaggi in 125 and 250. Now I am also a Lorenzo fan, because, I am a bike racing fan. I race, i track day, I ride on the roads. I love bikes (oh and the misses of course lol). I will watch speedway, mx xfighters thundersport, but watching sepang a couple of weeks back, Thats why I respect Rossi and Lorenzo
