  • Dovizioso pips Marquez in stunning Austrian MotoGP

Championship rival Maverick Vinales starts fourth, missing out on a front-row start by a tenth of a second, but was nearly overcome by the Pramac of Danilo Petrucci, who got within 0.026 of the Spaniard.

Repsol Honda's Marc Marquez has taken pole for tomorrow's Austrian MotoGP, leading the factory Ducati paring of Andrea Dovizioso and Jorge Lorenzo in this afternoon's qualifying session.

It was Ducati's second straight victory on the Red Bull Ring since the Austrian GP returned to the calendar past year.

Honda rider Marquez, who was unhurt when he slid off his bike in the final practice session earlier Saturday, timed 1 minute, 23.235 seconds in his fastest lap on the 4.318-kilometer (2.683-mile) Red Bull Ring for his 70th career pole. To put this into perspective, the Circuit Record Lap set last season by Iannone (then Ducati Team) last season was a 1:24.561.

Ducati rider Dovizioso wafted his arm up in reaction to Marquez's last-ditch attempt to take a third victory in a row as the championship leader had to settle for second spot ahead of team-mate Dani Pedrosa.

That proved only a temporary setback though as Marquez quickly reclaimed second before forcing compatriot Lorenzo wide at Remus.

Heading up the second row is Movistar Yamaha MotoGP's Maverick Vinales, who needs a podium finish to keep up his title fight.

Last year's victor Andrea Iannone will start 10th on the grid after finishing nearly a second off the pace on his Suzuki. Now riding for Suzuki, Iannone came 11th in Sunday's race.
