Telefonica Movistar Honda riders Hiroshi Aoyama and Dani Pedrosa completed the front row of the provisional grid. Aussie Casey Stoner was having a good session until he crashed with five minutes to go and eventually finished fifth fastest.

Andrea Dovizioso was sixth fastest ahead of Randy de Puniet and Yuki Takahashi. Simone Corsi and Hector Barbera completed the top 10. For his first official qualifying session on the 250cc KTM, Anthony West took a promising 15th position despite experiencing mechanical problems with the bike in the first part of the session.
