Lorenzo wins MotoGP pole in Spain Jorge Lorenzo took an impressive third straight pole at his home track of Montmelo this afternoon, Fiat Yamaha's championship leader storming to his 12th MotoGP pole with an impressive lap that was 0.364 seconds faster than Casey Stoner in second. His temporary team-mate Wataru Yoshikawa made an impressive improvement of more than two seconds, as he continues to gain a deeper understanding of Valentino Rossi's YZR-M1.
23-year-old Lorenzo was fastest once again in morning practice but spent most of the qualifying session a little further down the standings, as he concentrated on perfecting his race set-up and gathering as much information as possible about the two available Bridgestone tire compounds. With just under ten minutes to go he leapt up the leader board to take pole, surrendering it briefly to Stoner before improving again on both of his next two laps to ensure himself a hat-trick of pole positions from the last three races.
