SACHSENRING: Spain’s two-time defending world champion Marc Marquez set himself up for a sixth successive win at the Sachsenring on Saturday as he posted the fastest time in qualifying for Sunday’s German MotoGP.

The 22-year-old Honda rider was recording his sixth successive pole spot at the Sachsenring where he has prevailed in the past five editions in all three categories.

He grabbed pole with a track record one minute 20.336 seconds.

Marquez has not been in the dominant form of last year and has just the one win to his name this season leaving him fourth in the standings, 74 points off leader Valentino Rossi.

Marquez led a Spanish 1-2-3 in qualifying with his teammate Dani Pedrosa second and two-time world champion Jorge Lorenzo on a Yamaha in third.
