Marquez is quick wherever he rides but he appears to specifically enjoy the state-of-the-art Austin track where round two of the season is taking place and he secured his 11th premier class pole position by 0.289s from Repsol Honda teammate Pedrosa – having dominated all weekend so far.Circuit of the Americas, Dani Pedrosa, Marc Marquez, MotoGP, Stefan Bradl
MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez was fastest in both Friday free practice sessions at the Circuit of the Americas, ending FP2 a considerable 1.005s margin quicker than Andrea Dovizioso, whilst Dani Pedrosa was third best.
Marquez set a best time of 2:03.490s to lead the way at the state-of-the-art track in Texas where he took his first premier class victory in 2013 and on Saturday he will be a clear favorite to repeat his pole position from last year. Indeed Marquez set his best Friday time on a hard tire and was less than 0.5s from his own pole record set on a medium tire 12 months ago.Andrea Dovizioso, Circuit of the Americas, Dani Pedrosa, Marc Marquez, MotoGP
