Viñales follows Folger to Q2 - Rossi out

Nine-time World Champion just misses the cut in Qualifying 1 at the Catalan GP

Jonas Folger (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) led the Yamaha charge in Q1 in Montmelo, after all four representatives for the Japanese manufacturer had found themselves outside the graduation zone in FP3.

The German topped the timesheets from Championship leader Maverick Viñales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP), who moves through to Q2 just ahead of teammate Valentino Rossi after the Italian missed the cut by 0.040 seconds.

The rider from Tavullia will therefore start the race in P13, ahead of Johann Zarco (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) and Jack Miller (EG 0,0 Marc VDS). Another high profile name, Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda), will start from P17 after a crash in the final minutes. Rossi also had a run off in the session but rejoined the track with no drama.

Sylvain Guintoli (Team Suzuki Ecstar) didn't take part in Q1 due to illness, but is expected to race on Sunday no problem.
