Nakagami, Zarco and Espargaro (KTM) form a surprise top three during Free Practice 2 for the Andalucia MotoGP, at Jerez.

However, Vinales' 1m 37.063s in the cooler morning session remains the best of the day.

After missing last weekend's race through injury, Crutchlow and Rins both returned to action on Friday.

The Englishman required surgery for a broken scaphoid bone in his left wrist after falling in warm-up, while Rins dislocated and fractured his right shoulder in qualifying.

Zarco, Crutchlow and Rins were the only riders to lap quicker in the afternoon than the morning.

Reigning MotoGP champion Marc Marquez broke his right arm in Sunday's race but will attempt a shock return on Saturday morning, just four days after surgery to plate the fracture.
