7:55 am on 4 May 2014

Reigning world champion Marc Marquez continued his MotoGP domination with the local star securing his fourth straight pole in track record time for tomorrow's Spanish Grand Prix at Jerez.

The Spaniard's time of 1min 38.120sec broke compatriot Jorge Lorenzo's previous qualifying record and in doing so relegated the Yamaha star to second place on the grid.

Marquez's Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa was third fastest with six-time world champion Valentino Rossi on the second row of the grid in fourth on his Yamaha.

The 21-year-old Marquez has a commanding lead in the championship standings having won all three races so far this season in Qatar, the United States and Argentina.
