Pramac Racing’s Jack Miller took up the sixth spot with a time of 1:46.337 and he will be followed Ducati duo Andrea Dovizioso and Danilo Petrucci with timings of 1:46.410 and 1:46.427 respectively.

Aprila Racing’s Aleix Esparago and Moto GP legend Valentino Rossi of Monster Energy Yamaha both had best times of 1:46.558 and it was the former who finished ninth due to him making the time in his seventh lap. Rossi on the other hand recorded the time in his eighth.
