World championship leader Dani Pedrosa claimed pole in Barcelona on Saturday as he qualified fastest for Sunday’s Catalan MotoGP.

Pedrosa set a time of 1min 40.893 secs, more than half a second ahead of Britain’s Cal Crutchlow in second and defending world champion Jorge Lorenzo in third.

Six-time MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi’s frustrating campaign also continued as after setting the pace in Friday’s practice sessions, he qualified over a second down on Pedrosa’s time and will start in seventh.
