On Sunday Jorge Martin has the chance to strike again from pole. The Prima driver starts from the front row alongside Aleix Espargaro and Enea Bastianini.

Rookie Pedro Acosta wants to stand out again, starting eighth on the third row together with Fabio Di Giannantonio (7th) and Álex Márquez (9th).

Honda didn’t get past 15th place with Joan Mir.

Second went to Brad Binder on the KTM, who had moved from fourth place to second at the start and was Martin’s first pursuer from that point on. Aleix Espargaro completes the podium.
