Hello Everybody! I'm Ewan (@ewanssports) here covering Q1 and Q2 of MotoGP in Assen. The ones straight through to Q2 are: Dovizioso, Marquez, M.Vinales, Rossi, Iannone, Crutchlow, Redding, Petrucci, A.Espagaro and Lorenzo, The Ducati Bikes are looking strong, can Dovizioso or Iannone get a surprise pole? If you don't know what this means, here's how qualifying works:

There are 3 Practice Sessions, FP1-3, The best time for each rider in practice is then put on a leaderboard, the top 10 go straight to Q2 to battle for the first 12 places on the grid, the rest go to Q1 where the top 2 there are put to Q2, the rest (According to there times in Q1) make up places 13 and more. then there is Q2 where the fastest time then gets pole, you got all that?

Q1 and Q2 are 15 minutes shootouts to get the fastest time possible.

Who do you think will get pole? We had a vote earlier between Dovizioso, Lorenzo, Rossi and Marquez, 1 vote was cast, Lorenzo won. Comment here who you want/think to/will win

Q1 is to get underway in 12 minutes

If you hadn't heard, Rins will go to Suzuki next year, kicking out A.Espagaro, P.Espagaro will go to KTM With Smith, and Folger will go to Tech 3 Yamaha, that's the latest rider change for next year news

5 minutes to go, is the rain clearing?

I think so.

FP4 has just finished, a practice session, but it counts for nothing in Qualifying or the Race.

If you want those results, Michelin have them https://twitter.com/Michelin_Sport/status/746674945997029376
