Marc Marquez stormed to pole position in Brno, ahead of Valentino Rossi and Dani Pedrosa.
Danilo Petrucci and Alvaro Bautista were the lucky two who made it into Q2, and qualified in 8th and 9th respectively. Jorge Lorenzo only put in one flying lap before coming into the pits to change tyres, but the lap was cancelled after he was found to have exceeded track limits. As it was his only recorded lap, he went back out into the second half of the session with no time set.
