Quartararo fastest from Petronas team-mate and last Sunday's race winner Morbidelli, during opening practice for the Emilia Romagna MotoGP, the second of the back-to-back Misano rounds.

Quartararo used a new soft rear for his time attack, while Morbidelli raised eyebrows on the hard rear.

The likes of Vinales, Miller and Rossi did not use a new tyre at the end of the session.

After saving a near highside, which set off his airbag, Rins suffered a lowside fall at Turn 8.

Cal Crutchlow has been declared unfit for both Misano rounds following recent arm pump surgery.

Injured reigning world champion Marc Marquez continues to be replaced by Stefan Bradl.
