Data from practice is quite limited to provide a clear picture of the pecking order thanks to heavy rainfall in FP2.

Takaaki Nakagami set the overall fastest time on the LCR Honda, with Joan Mir less than a tenth behind on the Suzuki. Championship leader and factory Yamaha rider Fabio Quartararo was classified eighth.

Valentino Rossi, who will call time on his MotoGP career at the end of the season, was 16th-fastest.

Two familiar names are back on the MotoGP grid this week, with Dani Pedrosa making a wildcard outing for KTM and Cal Crutchlow deputising for the injured Franco Morbidelli at Petronas Yamaha.
