Last year's 250cc racewinner Jorge Lorenzo followed up his victory in round one at Qatar with a storming performance in the opening qualifying session. The reigning World Champion was nearly a second faster than second placed Marco Simoncelli after a hot lap of 1'43.145, laying down the gauntlet for his quarter litre rival.

Hector Barbera and Roberto Locatelli were the final two riders on the provisional front row which, apart from Lorenzo, were separated by just one hundredth of a second. They headed the factory Honda duo of Shuhei Aoyama and Julian Simon, with 2006 125cc victor Alvaro Bautista in seventh. Fabrizio Lai, Andrea Dovizioso and Thomas Luthi completed the top ten.
