Marc Marquez on MotoGP pole at Silverstone

Honda's MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez took his 10th pole position of the season at the British Grand Prix on Saturday (local time).

The Spaniard, who has won 10 of 11 races to date, will be joined on the front row at Silverstone by Ducati's Italian Andrea Dovizioso and Yamaha's double world champion Jorge Lorenzo.

Spaniard Dani Pedrosa, who ended team mate Marquez's run of 1o wins in a row at this month's Czech Grand Prix, will start in fifth place with Italian Valentino Rossi sixth on a Yamaha.

Bradley Smith was the leading British rider, qualifying seventh on the Tech3 Yamaha.
