Carlos Checa will start the inaugural Qatar Grand Prix from pole position after recording the fastest time in Friday's MotoGP qualifying session. The Spaniard will be joined on the front row of the grid by Alex Barros and Sete Gibernau, who finished second and third fastest respectively. However, champion Valentino Rossi will start from a disappointing eighth place. Sebastian Porto continued his fine form on the Losail International Circuit to claim pole in 250cc qualifying, while Jorge Lorenzo was the fastest rider in the 125cc session. (AP)
