Marquez aims for a century in Japan

Marc Marquez’s pole position at the Motul Grand Prix of Japan was not only his first in almost three years, it also gives the Repsol Honda Team rider a serious shot at a real milestone. This ends a sequence of 50 MotoGP™ races without a pole for him, and 25 starts for him. Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing) has qualified sixth, which is the 11th time so far this season he has qualified on the front two rows. He will be aiming to take his second MotoGP™ win, along with Argentina this year. Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™) has qualified ninth, which is the third time so far this year he has failed to qualify on the front two rows. This also marks the first time he has missed out on the front row in five successive MotoGP™ races. He will be aiming to win for the first time since the German GP this year. He will be aiming for his first podium since he was third in Qatar. He will be aiming to stand on the podium for the sixth successive time.
