Marc Marquez continued his dominant 125cc form at Aragon by cruising to pole position in this afternoon's qualifying session

125cc: Marquez takes another 125cc pole

In a classic example of tactical team riding, the Spaniard led an Ajo Derbi one-two, over half a second clear of team-mate Sandro Cortese, whom he towed to second place with a great run in the final five minutes of the session.

Championship leader Nico Terol (Aspar Aprilia) was the only other rider to lap below two minutes. His last-gasp effort lifted him onto the front row at the expense of Tuenti Derbi rider Efren Vazquez.

The Spaniard's Tuenti team-mate Pol Espargaro, who crashed in this morning's practice session, missed out on a front row start for only the second time this season and wound up fifth.

Britain's Bradley Smith (Aspar Aprilia) took a subdued sixth, while Swiss rider Randy Krummenacher (Stipa-Molenaar Aprilia), Frenchman Johann Zarco (WTR San Marino Aprilia), German Jonas Folger (Ongetta Aprilia) and Japanese rider Tamoyoshi Koyama (Racing Team Germany) rounded out an eclectic top 10, covered by just over two seconds.
