Federal Oil Gresini’s Fabio Di Giannantonio made it into third place, continuing the good form he has been displaying this season. Team-mate Nicolo Bulega had a good session and finished 14th allowing the Italian rider to go straight through to Q2.
Petronas Sprinta Racing’s Xavi Vierge eneded his session in fourth place, whilst team-mate Jake Dixon finished in ninth place, a much better position for the British rider, giving him a better opportunity to qualify higher on the starting grid for tomorrow’s race. Jake has had a change of crew chief for the rest of the season, as of yet the change seems to be going in the right direction for Jake and the Petronas Team.
Tennor American Racing’s Marcos Ramirez goes straight into Q2 finishing the session in fifth place, whilst team-mate Cameron Beaubier crashed with one minute remaing in the session at Turn one, so the American rider will have to go into Q1 for the qualifying session later today.
ELF Marc VDS Racing Team’s riders both go straight into Q2, Augusto finished his session in sixth place with team-mate Sam Lowes finishing in twelve place. Sam will be hoping for a good qualifying lap to ensure a good starting position on the grid tomorrow as the Brit really needs to gain some championship points to keep the championship fight alive!
Liqui Moly Intact GP’s Marcel Schrotter ended the session in seventh place with IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia’s Ai Ogura just behind in eighth place with team-mate Somkiat Chantra finishing in 11th place. Speed Up Racing’s Jorge Navarro finished in 10th place, Italtrans Racing Team’s Joe Roberts just got through to Q2 finishing in 13th place.
SKY Racing Team VR46’s Marco Bezzecchi had a dismal session and just doesn’t seem to be able to set the pace for a quick lap, the Italian is still struggling with Turn one, he ended the session down in 19th place, will he be able to find something for the race tomorrow? Aspar’s Aron Canet also struggled today and finished down in 17th place and will have to go through Q1.
Will the qualifying sessions throw-up any surprises today at 15.10 (GMT+2)?
