1 of 1

Valentino Rossi is once again on pole position after the second qualifying session the sixth round of the MotoGP world championship in Catalunya, Spain, despite not being able to better his time from the first qualifying session.

Rossi couldn’t take his Honda RC211V any closer than three tenths of a second slower than the 1:43.927 he set in yesterday’s session but his time was still good enough to hang on to first place on the grid.

Loris Capirossi, the Italians nearest rival, didn’t better his first session time either only managing to keep his V4 Desmosedici in second place by 0.025 seconds over Yamaha rider Olivier Jacque.

Sete Gibernau was another rider that didn’t manage to improve his time but still hung on to fourth place on the grid ahead of Alex Barros, Shinya Nakano, Colin Edwards and Carlos Checa.
