Frenchman leaves it late to head through with a stunning final lap – as SIX riders are split by just 0.094
Johann Zarco (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) looked to be starting outside the top twelve until his final lap in Q1, and the Frenchman made it count to pull out a rapid final sector and just take to the top, 0.022 ahead of fellow graduate Alex Rins (Team Suzuki Ecstar).
Rookie Takaaki Nakagami (LCR Honda Idemitsu) was the man to just lose out, pushed down to third.
