Izan Guevara set the fastest lap times from the start
The morning began with a cloudy sky and a fresh 13 degrees Celsius air temperature. The track was dry. In the final minutes it started to rain lightly in Turn 1 and put an end to the time hunt.
Andrea Migno (Honda) came third behind Guevara and Binder. PrüstelGP rider Filip Salac (KTM) and world champion Pedro Acosta (KTM) completed the top 5. Acosta was a little more than three tenths of a second behind.
Yuki Kunii (Honda), Romano Fenati (Husqvarna), Ayumu Sasaki (KTM), Sergio Garcia (GasGas) and John McPhee (Honda) followed in sixth to tenth place. Deniz Öncü (KTM) is back after two races. The Turk was ranked 14th (on the result).
Vice world champion Dennis Foggia (Honda) did not show a fast lap and finished the morning 27th and penultimate. Gabriel Rodrigo, who had to pass in Portimao due to a shoulder injury, will be represented in the Gresini team by Jose Antonio Rueda this weekend.
Maximilian Kofler had to skip Portimao last weekend because of a positive corona test. Last night the Austrian was struck off the entry list again. He is again represented on the CIP team by Joel Kelso.
