Marquez takes another pole position for the Austin MotoGP at COTA, with Rossi and Crutchlow completing the front row.

Lorenzo, fastest in Qualifying 1, was forced to park his Honda after the chain jumped off the sprocket, just as happened to team-mate Marquez in Argentina.

Marquez's nearest title rival Dovizioso did not make Qualifying 2. The #93 has won on all six of MotoGP's previous visits to COTA.
