Like Rossi, Misano was Simoncelli’s home track and is now named in his honor.
“This time we decided to make something more serious,” Rossi said. “It is already quite a long time that Marco is not with us, but here is his own racetrack – more than me because his house is closer and also the circuit is in his name.Marco Simoncelli, Misano, MotoGP, Valentino Rossi
Marc Marquez has impressively collected his sixth pole position of the 2013 MotoGP season, beating Casey Stoner’s Misano lap record in the process. The championship leader will start alongside Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi, with teammate Dani Pedrosa coming from fourth place on the grid.
As qualifying drew to a close at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, it looked as though Marquez had beaten Lorenzo by just 24 thousandths of a second. The Repsol Honda Team man (despite having suffered an accident during the preceding fourth practice session) then delivered a crushing blow in the form of 1’32.915, establishing the new qualifying record and sealing his second consecutive pole by over half a second. Lorenzo was comfortably second ahead of Yamaha Factory Racing partner Rossi, both now running with seamless shifter gearboxes for the first time. In fourth spot, Honda’s Pedrosa – on pole last year – was clearly frustrated for the duration of the day and was eight tenths of a second off the pole position time.Jorge Lorenzo, Marc Marquez, Misano, MotoGP, Valentino Rossi
Marc Marquez continued to top the timesheets as the qualifying running order was determined at Misano on Saturday morning. The championship leader led the way from title rivals Dani Pedrosa and Jorge Lorenzo, but Cal Crutchlow was unable to make the overall top ten and will therefore run in Q1 for the first time.
Atop the timesheets, Marquez broke into the 1’33s for the first time, courtesy of his leading effort of 1’33.975. Repsol Honda Team colleague Pedrosa was one tenth of a second slower before crashing at Rio corner two minutes before the end of the session, whereas Yamaha Factory Racing’s Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi finished third and fourth as they continued to adapt to their new seamless shift gearbox.Cal Crutchlow, Dani Pedrosa, Jorge Lorenzo, Marc Marquez, Misano
