Marquez’ teammate Alex Rins (Estrella Galicia 0,0) was fourth, with Romano Fenati (SKY Racing Team VR46) completing the top five.

Jack Miller (Red Bull KTM Ajo), Niccolo Antonelli (Junior Team GO&FUN), Alessandro Tonucci (CIP Mahindra), Niklas Ajo (Avant Tecno Husqvarna Ajo) and Hafiq Azmi (SIC-Ajo KTM) rounded out the top ten.

There was also a crash for Scott Deroue (RW Racing GP) just over ten minutes into FP1 but he was not hurt and soon got up to walk away.
