Morbidelli and Zarco lead Friday practice for the Catalunya MotoGP at Barcelona.

FP1 leader Quartararo suffered a technical problem and wasn't able to leave the pits in time to join the others in a soft tyre lap at the end of FP2.

It was a tough session for all the Ducatis barring Zarco - who like Morbidelli, Bradl and Lecuona fell during the afternoon session.

Crutchlow is returning to action after missing both Misano rounds following arm pump surgery and despite an ankle ligament injury on Wednesday.

HRC test rider Bradl is back in place of injured reigning world champion Marc Marquez after withdrawing from Misano due to nerve problems in his hand.
