Marc Márquez will take off from the front row of the starting grid for the seventh consecutive race this season.
He challenged for pole right up until his last lap, in which he had to save a crash at Turn 4 and would be unable to improve his best time.
Jorge Lorenzo placed among the ten fastest riders for the second time this season, after lowering his times from yesterday by almost a second.
2019 Catalan GP Qualifying - Rider statements
If we think about the whole weekend, today I'm very happy. We achieved our target of being on the front row but really today we were ready to be on pole position but I made mistake at Turn 4 on the last lap.
Quartararo did a great job today. Apart from that we are happy as we have the pace and the rhythm, especially in FP4 on used tyres I was very constant. Let’s try to understand where we can get an advantage, analyse everything and enjoy Sunday at the home GP!
This has been one of our most consistent weekends of the year, it’s positive to see this improvement. I think we have made a step forward and hopefully we can finish this race better than the previous ones. Everything we have done has made me more comfortable on the bike. Our pace on the long run is quite strong so I think we can continue this progress in the race and then make another step on Monday.
