Yonny Hernandez led a damp morning warm up session at Silverstone from Loris Baz and Alex Lowes.

It was ultimately a session that will have little relevance to the outcome of Sunday's race as just twelve riders took to the track.

The weather conditions would have come as an unwelcome sight to the Movistar Yamaha riders, who had pinned their hopes on the 20 minutes to test some much needed changes to their dry set-up.

Andrea Dovizioso posted the fourth fastest time, ahead of Jorge Lorenzo (fifth) and Scott Redding (sixth).

The treachery of the conditions were underlined by a fall suffered by Andrea Iannone at turn one.
