World champion Marc Marquez took pole for Sunday's French MotoGP with Ducati duo Danilo Petrucci and Jack Miller joining the Honda rider on the Le Mans front row.

Saturday's qualifying was staged in changeable conditions which made tire choice a complex affair, as underlined by Marquez posting the fastest lap only to then fall off his bike, AFP reported.

The Spaniard quickly climbed back on board to continue unscathed.

French fans are eager to see home hope Fabio Quartararo replicate his fine performance in qualifying in Jerez, Spain, a fortnight ago, when the 20-year-old became the youngest rider to take pole in a MotoGP, were left disappointed.

The Yamaha-SRT rookie will set off from 10th on the grid.
