Marc Marquez beat Casey Stoner's long standing 2008 lap record on the way to pole positon for the German MotoGP at Sachsenring.
Riding on a dry track following earlier drizzle, the reigning world champion took pole away from Repsol Honda team-mate Dani Pedrosa - just moments after Pedrosa had fallen at turn one.
Marquez then improved on his penultimate lap while the absent Pedrosa, fastest after the first of the two runs, retained second place, 0.296s from the #93.
Marquez - seeking to complete a perfect first half of the season with a ninth win on Sunday – had taken pole for the first six events, but was beaten by Pedrosa in Catalunya then Aleix Espargaro at Assen.
Home hero Stefan Bradl will complete the front row for LCR Honda with a best time 0.403s from the top.
Row two will be formed by Open class star Aleix Espargaro (+0.439s) then the Movistar Yamahas of Jorge Lorenzo (+0.571s) and Valentino Rossi (+0.714s).
Pramac Ducati's Andrea Iannone, the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 team-mates Pol Espargaro and Bradley Smith will start from row three.
Smith joined Pedrosa in missing the end of the session after his fourth fall of the weekend.
Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati) and Nicky Hayden (Aspar Honda) completed the twelve rider time sheet, both progressing to Qualifying 2 after leading the Qualifying 1 session.
