Sunday's race offers Yamaha's Fabio Quartararo his first opportunity to seal the title, with the Frenchman needing a 50-point buffer over Francesco Bagnaia to put the championship out of the Ducati rider's reach.

However, while Bagnaia romped to a fourth successive pole in Saturday's qualifying, Fabio Quartararo didn't even make it into Q2 and will start the race from 15th on the grid.

Joining Bagnaia on the front row will be his Ducati teammate Jack Miller and Luca Marini on the two-year-old Avantia Desmosedici.
