Front row starter Maverick Vinales was second fastest to complete a sweep of front-running times in all pre-race sessions, while Alex Rins looked in good form for Suzuki in third place.

Fresh from his first Q2 showing of the 2020 MotoGP season, Repsol Honda's Marquez was fourth best from Joan Mir on the second of the Suzukis, while pole sitter Fabio Quartararo played it safe with the sixth best time. 

In seventh was his Petronas SRT Yamaha team-mate Franco Morbidelli from top Ducati rider Danilo Petrucci, who in turn was just ahead of his team-mate - and new enemy - Andrea Dovizioso, following their qualifying skirmish. 

This afternoon's Aragon MotoGP will see Quartararo start on his fourth MotoGP pole position of the year, from Vinales and Crutchlow.

They will be chased behind by Morbidelli in fourth place, from Jack Miller and title contender Mir on the Suzuki.
