Oliveira and Morbidelli progress to the Q2 pole position shootout, where they will join the ten fastest riders after third practice.

The others will start, in the following order, from 13th on the grid onwards.

Reigning MotoGP champion Marquez returned to action today, just four days after surgery to plate a fractured right arm.

The Repsol Honda rider went out at the start of Qualifying 1, but then pitted without doing a flying lap and walked straight out of the back of the pits and did not set a lap time.

Younger brother Alex then fell at the end of Qualifying 1 and, unfortunately, looked to be nursing his right arm...

 Crutchlow (wrist fracture) and Rins (dislocated shoulder) made their comebacks on Friday, although Rins sat out FP3 this morning.
