MotoGP championship leader Marc Marquez took pole for the German Grand Prix, a new lap record edging out Repsol Honda team-mate Dani Pedrosa on Saturday (local time).

Marquez, who started the season with six poles in a row but failed to qualify in top spot for the last two races, recorded a time of one minute 20.937 seconds.

That effort broke Casey Stoner's six-year pole lap record at the Sachsenring circuit of 1:21.067 and was just under three tenths faster than Pedrosa, with Germany's Stefan Bradl completing the front row.

Marquez has won all eight races this season.
