Laconi quickest in warm-up

Suzuki were also back on the pace in fourth and sixth, Max Neukirchner leading Yukio Kagayama, the pair being split by Ducati's Michel Fabrizio.

Elsewhere, privateer Honda pair Roberto Rolfo and Tommy Hill popped up into the top ten in seventh and tenth respectively, with Noriyuki Haga and Carlos Checa between them in eighth and ninth.

Tom Sykes, Jonathan Rea and Leon Haslam had to make do with 11th, 12th and 13th positions respectively.
