Morbidelli takes his first MotoGP pole position and leads an all-Yamaha front row in Catalunya.

Dovizioso faces a battle to retain his title lead - which currently stands at just one point over Vinales and Quartararo, and four points over mir - after qualifying just 17th.

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.
