Jerez star Francesco Bagnaia, who went for hospital checks on a possible right knee injury at the end of FP1, missed FP2 is in doubt for not only the rest of this weekend but also the following Austrian round.

All riders except Dovizioso, Crutchlow and Bagnaia set their fastest lap of the day in FP2.

Reigning MotoGP champion Marc Marquez, who broke his right arm in the season-opening Jerez race on July 19, has withdrawn after undergoing a second round of surgery and is being replaced by HRC test rider Stefan Bradl.
