The Movistar Yamaha rider topped a thankfully dry session, just holding off the joint charges of Jack Miller and Danilo Petrucci on the Pramac Ducatis, both of whom were with a tenth of a second of Viñales. 

Andrea Dovizioso made it three Ducatis in the top four, while Cal Crutchlow was the fastest Honda, just ahead of Marc Marquez. Marquez got his weekend underway with a crash, falling at MG towards the end. Repsol Honda teammate also fell, though at the much faster Doohan Corner, Turn 1.
