Zarco ended Fabio Quartararo's pole streak in the eight round of the 2021 MotoGP season, beating the Yamaha rider by just 0.011s in a tightly-contested qualifying.

Aleix Espargaro secured Aprilia's first front row start of the modern era, while Honda rider Marc Marquez - unbeaten at the German venue in all classes since 2010 - qualified a disappointed fifth behind the lead factory Ducati of Jack Miller.

Francesco Bagnaia was only 10th fastest.
