Red Bull KTM's Julian Simon was the fastest in this morning's free practice session, marking a fine comeback by Austrian factory after a tough first day at the Losail circuit when the Spaniard and his team-mates experienced front-end issues.

Simon posted a best lap just 0.052s ahead of Frenchman Mike di Meglio, while title contenders Thomas Lüthi and Mika Kallio were also back among the front runners with third and fourth fastest respectively.

Derbi's Lukas Pesek took fifth, followed by French rookie Alexis Masbou, Marco Simoncelli - the provisional pole holder - and Fabrizio Lai. Joan Olive and Manuel Poggiali completed the top 10.
