- Dino Lombardi has vastly improved on his previous best qualifying position, which was 23rd at Le Mans two weeks ago.

- Mattia Pasini starts from his lowest grid position since qualifying 15th for the wet race in China in 2005, when he went on to score his first ever victory.

- Bradley Smith could become the first British rider to register back-to-back podiums in the class since Chas Mortimer in 1973.
