Honda MotoGP rider Marc Marquez took a seventh consecutive pole position at the Sachsenring, beating his own lap record from last year.
Marquez had a comfortable gap over his Q2 rivals from the get-go, taking the lead with a 1m20.575s with his first lap and then immediately pitting for his second bike.
His second run ended with him beating his own lap record with a 1m20.215s and he then switched tires again.
Fabio Quartararo put some pressure on Marquez as the session was coming to an end, but even his best effort of 1m20.400s was nearly two tenths off, and the Honda rider then improved again as the chequered flag fell.
