Marquez takes pole position for the Italian MotoGP after positioning himself perfectly to be towed around the final lap by Dovizioso.

The Repsol Honda star set a new all-time record to snatch pole away from Quartararo, after another excellent showing by the Yamaha rookie, with Petrucci the top Italian in third for Ducati.

Countryman Rossi and Austin winner Rins failed to progress past Qualifying 1.

Both did two slow laps at the start of their final Q1 run, then appeared to be caught out when the chequered flag waved before they had chance to do a flying lap.
