Marquez rode one of his greatest races to pip Jorge Lorenzo by just 0.249 seconds in last year's Phillip Island race and his Repsol Honda bike looks superior to the others this weekend.Crutchlow, who topped the Q1 session to advance into the second qualifying session along with Lorenzo, ran with intermediate tyres and was always in the top three in the final session.Lorenzo could only finish 12th in Q2, some 6.6 seconds behind Marquez, while his Movistar team-mate and nine-time world champion Valentino Rossi failed to make it into the final qualifying session and will start 15th on the grid for Sunday's race.
