Moto2: Lorenzo fastest in first qualifying

The Fortuna Aprilia rider, who has already taken eight poles this season, overcame a brief challenge from Kopron Scot Honda's Andrea Dovizioso to end the session fastest by 0.156 seconds.

KTM duo Mika Kallio and Hiroshi Aoyama took third behind Dovizioso, with Aoyama's late lap edging Alvaro Bautista down to fifth position.

Alex de Angelis, who currently holds second in the standings, just one point ahead of Dovizioso, could only manage sixth on the provisional grid - moving up from eighth with his last run.
