Dovizioso leads an all-Ducati top four during opening practice at a scorching Aragon MotoGP.

Dovizioso, Petrucci and Lorenzo set their best times with a used soft front and new hard rear tyre combination at the end of the session. Miller also had a new hard rear, but used medium front.

Vinales - who had a technical problem while trying a practice start at the end of the session - fitted a new medium front and new soft rear for his best time. Meanwhile Marquez used the same set of medium tyres (front and rear) for the full session.

Tito Rabat is still recovering from leg injuries at Silverstone and has been replaced by WorldSBK rider Jordi Torres, making his MotoGP debut this weekend. Torres is using the GP16 machines of Simeon, who has been handed Rabat's GP17s.

Simeon suffered a major engine failure at the end of the FP1.
