The fall of Cal Crutchlow on the FP3 where the british pilot was the ‘guest’ to the most illustrious in the Q1, odd after winning a few days ago at Phillip Island. Be that as it may, and with a wet asphalt, the pilot of the LCR Honda team had no big problems to sign their passage to Q2. CCrutchlow closed the session with a time of 2:11.591, registration, serving to overcome for more than 1.2 seconds to Loris Baz. The gaul, against all expectations, managed to sneak into second position despite suffering a crash in the first minutes of the session.
The good result of Loris Baz left out of the Q2 to Bradley Smith, still ailing from his injury, and Jack Miller. The australian could not take advantage of the conditions of a wet track to be among the best, as it has done on other occasions throughout the season, as neither did a Stefan Bradl who ended up on the floor after losing control of his Aprilia. All in all, the German rider managed to finish ahead of Hiroshi Aoyama who is not getting noted as a replacement for Pedrosa.
Jorge Lorenzo was the first to leave his stamp on Q2 on the wet asphalt, although his time trial became a mere anecdote when Andrea Dovizioso crossed the finish line with the rubber more soft and wet on his rear end. The Italian signed a 2:11.6 which to him would have been the pole, but the Ducati rider still managed to return to the pits, riding, hard rubber, and to improve his time by two tenths more. The end result is that Andrea Dovizioso claimed the pole position with a time of 2:11.485, achieved his second pole position of the season.
Second ended Valentino Rossi, who was ultimately to his teammate Jorge Lorenzo. Outside the first row of the grid was Marc Marquez, while the fifth position fell into the hands of Cal Crutchlow after a last lap on the wire after he crashed minutes before. Nor was of the fall during Q2 the Catalan Aleix Espargaró, which demoted the pilot of Suzuki in the seventh position, just behind Andrea Iannone and far exceeding a tenth to Maverick Viñales, every time the ’25’ offered best feelings which then showed with his final time.
