Kallio on provisional pole in 125cc

Mika Kallio earned provisional pole in Shanghai for Sunday's 125cc race, with a time of 2'21.545 nearly two and a half seconds under the circuit record.

The Fin overtook Alvaro Bautista on his final lap, with this morning's fastest rider Lukas Pesek finishing third.

The first qualifying session was undertaken without rain but with a track soaked by earlier downpours. Luthi, Masbou and Chow suffered crashes, although none as nasty looking as Sergio Gadea's early morning highside.
