A dry qualifying session followed a wet practice earlier in the day at Phillip Island, Australia. Championship points leader Marc Marquez (Honda) took pole position for tomorrow’s race. Qualifying on the front row with Marquez were the Yamahas of Maverick Viñalez and Johann Zarco.
The rider just 11 points behind Marquez in the title hunt, Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati), will start in 11th position (the fourth row) tomorrow.
Typical for this circuit, weather has been a bit unpredictable and tomorrow’s race could be either wet or dry. You can find full qualifying results here. Stay tuned for further race coverage on MD.
