The second row of the grid is headed by Ducati rider, Andrea Dovizioso in fourth, while Cal Crutchlow took fifth. Sixth place on the grid went to the second Yamaha of Valentino Rossi.
The third row of the grid is headed up by Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa, who qualified seventh. The second Ecstar Suzuki of Aleix Espargaro will line up eighth on the grid, with Danilo Petrucci ninth on the grid. Row four sees Scott Redding, Pol Espargaro and Stefan Bradl line up alongside each other.
