The top two riders in Q1 now progress to the Q2 pole position shootout, where they will join the ten fastest riders after third practice.
The others will start, in the following order, from 13th on the grid onwards.
Bradley Smith led Q1 with ease while Yonny Hernandez, who has joined Pramac in place of the injured Ben Spies, surprised by trading second place with team regular Andrea Iannone. However the Italian prevailed.
Damian Cudlin is taking over from Hernandez at PBM, with Luca Scassa replacing the injured Karel Abraham at Cardion AB. Cudlin walked away from a fall at the end of the session.
