Valentino Rossi set the fourth fastest time on his Yamaha machine, in fifth Monster Yamaha Tech3’s Cal Crutchlow. After suffering a crash earlier on championship leader Marc Marquez took sixth place, following on was Tech3’s Bradley Smith. Randy De Puniet managed to beat his team-mate for the first time in awhile and will be hoping to do so in Sunday’s race. Completing the top ten was Ducati duo Nicky Hayden and Andrea Dovizioso.  By Laura Turner
