Reigning MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez revealed his frustration after the Repsol Honda rider had to settle for second place on the front row at Misano.

Marquez was clearly annoyed with his performance at the conclusion of final qualifying after missing out on pole by 0.106 seconds to Movistar Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo, who set the fastest ever MotoGP lap at the Marco Simoncelli Circuit in 1m 32.146s.

The Spanish rider, who has admitted that his fading championship hopes were all but over after he slid out of second place at the British MotoGP at Silverstone, said he was disappointed in himself but has vowed to push to the maximum to claim all 25 points on Sunday.

"I was a little bit unhappy just with myself, especially with the last tyre in the last practice because I didn't make the perfect lap," Marquez said.

"So for that reason I was angry but even like this I finished second on the front row, so we must be happy for this.

"We are between both Yamahas so it will be interesting tomorrow to see how we can manage the race. The rhythm is really similar like Jorge so I
will try to be there close to him," he added.

"Tomorrow I know that they are fighting for the championship and it will be interesting to be there in the battle, but we will do our race and if I can win I will try to win, but if not I will try to finish in second place but of course I will do my 100 per cent to take the 25 points."

Marquez revealed he doesn't intend to make many changes to his RC213V ahead of the race after finding a set-up he is happy with during qualifying.

"Race set-up I feel not so bad, so for tomorrow we will not change many things," he said.

"Already we decide which one is fine so we will try to concentrate on the warm-up to feel well with the bike and then see if we can stay with both Yamahas in the race.

"Also we cannot forget Dani [Pedrosa] because his rhythm is good."
