UPDATE: Vinales receives a three-place penalty for holding up Quartararo at the end of qualifying.

Rookie star Quartararo claims his second MotoGP pole position, as four Yamaha riders qualify in the top five at Catalunya.
 
Honda's Marquez got a tow from Rossi on his way to second position, but then lost time during a big save on his final lap.
 
Quartararo, whose only grand prix victory to date came in last year's Barcelona Moto2 race, is riding for the first time since arm pump surgery.
 
Guintoli and Smith are making their latest wild-card appearances.
