Tuenti Movil HP 40 rider Pol Espargaro has taken pole position in the qualifying session at Sepang for the Moto2 World championship race from Malaysia. It is his sixth pole aboard the Kalex this season.
Changeable conditions at the circuit meant few went faster as the session progressed into the closing stages. Espargaro improved his own time at the top to 2m.06.962 on his final lap after leading for most of qualifying.
Scott Redding led the way early on for Marc VDS and starts from second on his Kalex 0.437 behind Espargaro. Championship leader Marc Marquez completes the front row in third on his Catalunya Caixa Repsol sponsored Suter.
Brit Bradley Smith rode through the pain of two fractured toes to qualify on the second row in sixth. he didn’t start in Sepang in 2011 as he suffered a collarbone fracture.
