Kawasaki's Jonathan Rea makes it a perfect third Superpole in a row for 2021, outpacing Yamaha's Toprak Razgatlioglu and Ducati's Scott Redding.

Redding's team-mate and Free Practice leader Michael Rinaldi will head row two from Tom Sykes and Alex Lowes.

Eugene Laverty missed Superpole due to his FP3 accident. The Irishman was described as 'conscious' when taken to the Medical Centre after falling in the Turn 10 area (leading onto the back straight), TV images of the aftermath showing Laverty and his bike had crossed the gravel trap and hit the tyre wall.

UPDATE: Laverty declared unfit for the remainder of Saturday due to neck strain and 'functional impairment', will be re-evaluated on Sunday morning.

Garrett Gerloff, who will start race one from pit lane due to 'irresponsible riding' at previous rounds, fell after losing the front at Turn 1 during Superpole.

For the first time, two super-soft qualifying tyres were available to each rider in Superpole...
