Ducati's Andrea Dovizioso claims pole position for the Malaysian MotoGP at a wet Sepang, with Yamaha team-mates Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo completing the front row.

Cal Crutchlow, fastest in Qualifying 1, fell in Qualifying 2 but remounted his LCR Honda to salvage fifth on his final lap.

Sepang has been resurfaced, and some corners re-profiled, ahead of this year's race.

Hiroshi Aoyama is replacing the injured Dani Pedrosa at Repsol Honda, while Ducati's Andrea Iannone is making a comeback from vertebra damage at Misano...
