First of all, it was a tough Q1 for Raul Fernandez as long as the Spaniard suffered a lot of pain thinking also to do not take part at the qualifying, but at the end Angel Nieto Team rider tried to go on track and did some laps being even able to get a fantastic 2nd position we a great last fast lap!
Top 4 was composed by Kaito Toba, who snatched a late access to Q2 thanks to a good lap, with the Japanese who did a 2.12.467 staying ahead of everyone being four tenths of a second faster of Fernandez, while Ayumu Sasaki and Celestino Vietti, first rider over the 2.12, got the last spots. Nothing to do for Makar Yurchenko who was taken out by Fernandez in the last minute.
During the last session of qualifying, this time almost everyone was able to do a last lap time as long as there was still the same mega group because every rider waited until the last minute to get a good slipstream but everyone crossed the line in time, even if some guy had their lap ruined from traffic; it is the case of Romano Fenati, who got a record first intermediate but found too many riders in his road, with last GP winner who ended in 14th.
At the end almost everyone was not able to improve their lap time in their last attempt, with Tony Arbolino who got another stunning pole position finishing ahead of Lorenzo Dalla Porta, who was far from just 79 thousandths of a second. First row is completed by an heroic Raul Fernandez despite the pain.
Ayumu Sasaki opens second row after going through Q1, with Niccolò Antonelli just behind despite a late little crash; John McPhee closes second row ahead of Celestino Vietti, another guy who had to face Q1 but managed to get a good qualifying session. Ai Ogura is 8th ahead of Marcos Ramirez, while Sergio Garcia ends top 10 and Tatsuki Suzuki and Aron Canet follow him.
