With the pilot of the united States occupying the bike Jack Miller and with the absence of Alex Lowes by the fall lived out hours before in MotorLand, the first session of qualifying in Alcaniz lived in their first minutes of a duel between the two official riders of Aprilia and the drivers satellite Ducati. Danilo Petrucci took the cat to water in the first instance, although the new set of tyres, ridden by all the riders allowed a second round in the chase for the two-seater, with access to the Q2.

Barberá, Bautista and Hernandez were at a sigh of certify that step to the Q2, but what is certain is that in his last flying lap, and by thousandths, Danilo Petrucci and Stefan Bradl managed to be the two fastest drivers of Q1. While the Italian has signed a 1:48.596 that allowed him to put his Ducati in the second qualifying session, Bradl was left to 26 thousandths, adding its first ranking for Q2 of the entire season. Out of the same was Michele Pirro -again replacing Iannone- after suffering a fall in the curve 8.
