Francesco Bagnaia has claimed his second pole of the MotoGP season after setting a lap record at the Aragon Grand Prix in Alcaniz, while edging out his Australian teammate Jack Miller in a Ducati one-two.
The pair were joined on the front row by Yamaha's world championship leader Fabio Quartararo whose closest challenger, Suzuki's Joan Mir, could only finish seventh fastest in Saturday's qualifying.
"I'm very happy, I started the weekend with a lot of questions about this track, I've struggled here," Bagnaia said in a pit lane interview.
"But when I started these three days, the feeling was really great and I was happy about the bike. I improved the pace and the qualifying lap was incredible."
Miller, who has slipped to fifth in the championship, will be happy with his revival and the chance to pick up valuable points in Sunday's race in Spain.
Honda's Marc Marquez, looking to win at the track for a sixth time, set the early pace and will start fourth on the grid - his best qualifying result of the season.
Marquez will be joined on the second row by Jorge Martin, of Pramac Racing, and Aleix Espargaro, of Aprilia. Martin's teammate Johann Zarco, who is third in the standings, starts back in 10th on the grid.
