So first, Rins will sadly not be competing the rest of the weekend as he has been declared unfit to race after a crash in FP3.

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 in 15 minutes, in Q1 is Smith, Lowes, Abraham, P.Espagaro, Rabat, Baz, Bautista, Barbera, A.Espagaro, Petrucci, Lorenzo (Surprise), Miller.
