Rookie Alex Marquez surprises by setting the fastest lap time during warm-up for the Emilia Romagna MotoGP, the second of the back-to-back Misano rounds.

Marquez set his best lap on medium tyres, while chasing Mir.

Miller had a big highside at the start of the session and was clearly still in pain as he returned to the pits, but was back on track for the end of the session.

Stefan Bradl, who was replacing injured reigning world champion Marc Marquez, has withdrawn from the remainder of the weekend due to recent surgery for nerve problems in his hand.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