Once again, he found the Yamaha on his way, but with a new challenger: Franco Morbidelli. This time the Italian managed to beat team-mate Fabio Quartararo and the two Yamaha cars of the Petronas team are both in the front row. "They were complicated qualifications in less than ideal conditions – Franco commented referring to a track that was not completely dry after the morning rain – But having done a good job, the team helped me a lot and we managed to improve. In the race I would like to continue like this ».
The good form of the Yamaha is also confirmed by Maverick Vinales' 4th place, but once again, it was Valentino who failed the appeal. After yesterday's good performance, more was expected from Rossi but 10th place was all he could get.
Honda was also able to celebrate with Crutchlow, 5th on the grid in front of Jack Miller's Ducati Pramac team. The Australian took the last place in the 2nd row, forcing the two Red drivers in the third round Andrea Dovizioso and Danilo Petrucci. The Italian couple will start with Aleix Espargarò's Aprilia, while his teammate, Andrea Iannone, is last on the grid.
Continuing with the classification, 11th and 12th time for the Suzuki's Rins and Mir, while Pecco Bagnaia is 14th. Another bad day for Jorge Lorenzo, who finished 19th.
Good news for the Italians came from the other classes with two pole positions: in Moto3 it was Niccolò Antonelli (of Squadra Corse Sic58) the fastest, while in Moto2 it was Luca Marini who imposed his law.
