Alvaro Bautista (Angel Nieto Team) shot to the top of the times on his final lap in Q1 to top the session as he heads for Q2, with Takaaki Nakagami (LCR Honda Idemitsu) joining the Spaniard after a fantastic session on home turf.
Bradley Smith (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) missed out by 0.066 in P3 after going fastest on his second run, with Danilo Petrucci (Alma Pramac Racing) only managing fifth in Q1 – P15 for the Italian on the grid.
Franco Morbidelli (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) was on a quick lap before crashing at Turn 12 – rider ok.
