Full qualifying times from the Czech Republic Grand Prix at Brno, round eleven of the 2009 MotoGP World Championship.

Third in the championship Casey Stoner has withdrawn from the next three events to try and cure the fatigue problems he has suffered at the last five rounds.

Stoner's place at Ducati Marlboro has been taken by Mika Kallio, whose Pramac ride has in turn been temporarily handed to WSBK race winner Michel Fabrizio.

Valentino Rossi lost the front of his Fiat Yamaha and crashed out with three minutes of the session to go, but still kept pole.

Mika Kallio also had a fast accident, with eight minutes to go, which ended with his factory Ducati on top of a tyre barrier. Kallio, like Rossi, was unharmed.
