Results and summary of qualifying for the MotoGP class in Buriram:
Yamaha got a taste for some headlines after stealing the spotlight on Friday and Maverick Viñales seemed to forget that his bike used to suffer in hot slippery conditions and set camp at the front of the pack straight out the gates – only to be quickly demoted by teammate Valentino Rossi once the Spaniard took to the pits. The Yamaha charge was stopped by Andrea Iannone of all people once the Italian picked the pocket of his compatriot. Ultimately it was a pointless exercise once the title rivals swapped rubber and attacked the top of the charts.

The final casual outing for the intermediate class was a more subdued affair but a couple of riders did manage to improve on Friday times and find some gains on race pace. The difference was minimal, Fabio Quartararo finding the right tow to pick up the lead halfway through the session and keep it at the checkered flag. Ironically, the man who aided Quartararo along the straights in his bid for the lead struggled to drag himself into the top 15 for much of the session.
The first Saturday outing for the premier class was getting hotter and hotter, mostly literally, and it started with news of Jorge Lorenzo deciding to withdraw from the Thai GP following his spectacular but unfortunate crash on Friday. Ultimately, it was Dovizioso who finally nailed the final sector and became the fastest man of the weekend, almost two tenths ahead of Miller.
The second day for the lightweight class to explore the new playground at their disposal brought them up to speed straight away, sending Friday’s benchmark out the window in the first ten minutes of the session. Fabio di Giannantonio was the first man to dip into the 1:42s and the Italian kept showing the way throughout proceedings, one and a half tenths ahead of the opposition. The Italian doubled that advantage – impressively while running on his own and with no slipstream opportunities – on his final outing.
Andrea Dovizioso ended the first day of practice on top of the timesheets, the factory Ducati rider posting a fast lap at the end of the day, as almost everyone stuck in a new tire in pursuit of a fast time.
