The top ten riders after FP3 will receive direct access to the second and final part of this afternoon's qualifying session.

Claudio Corti (Forward Racing) was the only rider on track not to improve this morning.

Cardion AB's Karel Abraham did not ride due to pain from the broken collarbone suffered in qualifying at Austin. Pramac Ducati's Ben Spies is missing the event in order to undergo further rehabilitation on his healing shoulder.

Ducati test rider and former Gresini CRT racer Michele Pirro is making his Desmosedici race debut as a wild-card this weekend.
