Iannone takes pole position at Austrian GP

After an interesting first qualifying Danilo Petrucci and Bradley Smith clocked the best times and advanced in to the second qualifying round. We could see the standings taking insane turns in the final lap, but the faster group took that on a whole new level.

It was Andrea Iannone that continued to dominate the Austrian MotoGP on his factory Ducati with a pole position while Andrea Dovizioso came in just 0,159s slower, which landed him a start from third position. An extremely delighted Valentino Rossi split the two monster Italian bikes taking the second place.

Mark Marquez, who dislocated his shoulder in the morning practice continued riding with the injury and came in fifth, just behind Jorge Lorenzo.
