Pedrosa squeezed out Jorge Lorenzo by 0.018s to steal pole on his final flying lap of the 60 minute session, during which both sides of the Repsol Honda garage worked non-stop to make up for lost time caused by bad weather yesterday and in this morning's FP3.
In tomorrow's 28 lap race, Dani will be looking for his 3rd consecutive win and to close the gap to Jorge Lorenzo.
DANI PEDROSA 1st 1'33.857
"It was a pretty tight session and no time to rest as we had to test the tires, suspension and find some settings, as well as finding some feeling for myself! At the end we managed a good lap to take pole, which is very important as the first part of the circuit is very tight, so a good start is necessary. The setting on the bike is good so I hope to have a good race tomorrow. Thanks to all my team, we did a very good job in a very short time after a strange weekend due to the weather conditions, but we remained focused to have a good qualifying session and be ready for tomorrow's race".
