VIDEO | Pole position for Marc Marquez at the race in Portugal
Spanish Honda motorcyclist Marc Marquez will start from pole position in the Portuguese Grand Prix on Sunday in the first race of the new season.
The six-time world champion will start today's sprint race from the first position, the first in the history of this competition. Although it is Marquez, this is still somewhat surprising given his battle with health over the previous three years.
Marquez set a time of 1:37,226 to leave behind the defending champion, Francesco Bagnao и Jorge Martina. The first sprint race starts today from 16:00, while the Portuguese Grand Prix is on the program tomorrow from 15:00.
