Marquez claims pole ahead of Ducati duo in Austria

Dovizioso, who was second in Austria to his then team-mate Andrea Iannone previous year, took advantage of the battle between Marquez and Lorenzo to snatch the lead.

Andrea Dovizioso won a thrilling Austrain Grand Prix for Ducati by a margin of just 0.176 seconds ahead of Honda's Marc Marquez.

Championship leader Marc Marquez stormed to a third consecutive pole at the Austrian MotoGP on Saturday.

He sounds like the leader of North Korea , not the leader of the United States. There is no military solution to the North Korea nuclear issue.

Dovizioso made it three-wide for the lead on the following straight and was briefly ahead at Turn 4, but subsequently ran wide and handed first back to Marquez.

Defending world champion Marquez leads the championship standings on 154 points, 14 ahead of second-placed Vinales and 21 ahead of Dovizioso.

On that lap, they traded places several times, Marquez not managing to make a move stick and easing the pressure on the Ducati for a few laps afterwards. Andrea Dovizioso held off a charging Marquez as the Spaniard finished just 0.176 seconds behind the Italian after trying to slide past for the lead on the last corner of the last lap of the race.

West Ham manager Bilic has stated that he plans to make one more signing before the summer transfer window shuts down. Manchester United will grind out a victory out here.

The podium was completed by Marquez's teammate Dani Pedrosa, who had fought his way through the pack, picking off the Yamaha's Valentino Rossi and Johann Zarco in one move and then finding his way past Lorenzo.

Scott Redding was 10th, but will have to take part in the Q1 qualifying session as Dovizioso's fastest lap from FP2 was enough to put him through to Q2 despite finishing FP3 in 16th and the best part of a second off Marquez's time.

Their battle allowed Pedrosa to close right in around six laps from the end but he couldn't challenge for the victory and Dovizioso prevailed. Joining Vinales on row two are Octo Pramac Racing Ducati's Danilo Petrucci and Monster Yamaha Tech 3's Johan Zarco.

EP Energy Corporation (NYSE:EPE) Position Held By Riverstone Holdings
The energy producer reported ($0.30) earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, missing the consensus estimate of ($0.12) by $0.18. Finally, Sanders Morris Harris Inc. increased its position in shares of Sanchez Energy Corporation by 6.4% in the first quarter.

KTM wildcard Mika Kallio was a standout performer, beating Suzuki's Andrea Iannone to 10th and very almost passing Baz as well.
