Bagnaia leads the way during final practice for the Emilia Romagna MotoGP, the second of the back-to-back Misano rounds.

Along with Bagnaia, Mir and Vinales also delivered very impressive race pace.

Smith and Nakagami both had big falls at Turn 15, leaving their bikes heavily damaged.

Qualifying 1, for those outside the top ten after third free practice, will now get underway.

Stefan Bradl, who was replacing injured reigning world champion Marc Marquez, has withdrawn from the remainder of the weekend due to recent surgery for nerve problems in his hand.

Cal Crutchlow was declared unfit for both Misano rounds following arm pump surgery.
