Moto2 Le Mans: Marc Marquez takes third consecutive pole position

Not even a crash could stop Marc Marquez during Moto2s qualifying session at Le Mans.
The young Spaniard – who could make the jump directly to Repsol Honda next season and replace retiring Casey Stoner, if the team can pressure Dorna to change the rookie rule (not going to happen) took his third straight consecutive pole position of the season.

The Monlau Competition rider crashed halfway through the session at turn 8 after posting a 1:37.
710 lap that would remain uncontested and while his crew was repairing his bike, it seemed that Thomas Luthi would be able to wrestle the pole away from him as he was just 0.

029s adrift, but it started raining with five minutes left and that more or less ended the timed session.
Marquez’s direct rival Pol Espargaro was third followed by Scott Redding who suffered a crash in the last minute.
Andrea Iannone was fifth jumping to the position in the finale and he’ll have Mika Kallio and Alex de Angelis on the same row.
Home boy Johann Zarco took 8th while Claudio Corti grabbed 9th ahead of Toni Elias rounded out the top 10.
