Malaysian GP: 125cc Qualifying

 In Marc Marquez, Pol Espargaro

marc-marquez-malaysia-qualifyingMarc Márquez topped qualifying in the 125cc class, taking pole position on the grid for the second time this season, and the second time in his career.

New world champion Julián Simón secured second spot with a final lap which was 0.055s off Márquez’s time, whilst Bradley Smith (Bancaja Aspar) and Sandro Cortese (Ajo Interwetten) completed the front row.

Smith crashed out at the end of the session with a high-side, and after a medical examination it was confirmed he had broken the fifth metatarsal in his right foot. The 19 year-old will be fit for Sunday’s race, however.

Nico Terol (Jack & Jones Team), Esteve Rabat (Blusens Aprilia), Joan Olivé (Derbi Racing Team) and Danny Webb (Degraaf Grand Prix) will comprise the second row.
