The FP3 saw thirteen riders separated by less than a second. The riders of the Pramac Racing Team missed out on direct access to Q2 by a few tenths of a second, leaving a bit of a bitter taste in their mouth. On this qualifying day, Andrea Iannone and Yonny Hernandez had some difficulties and will start the race respectively on the fifth and seventh row tomorrow. The circuit of Jerez de la Frontera, with its short straights and fast corners, makes it harder to put the power of the Desmosedici under control.

Andrea Iannone - Pramac Racing - closes the three combined sessions with the twelfth time, losing by just over a tenth of a second the opportunity to go thought to the second qualifying session. During the last free practice "FP4" used to work on tomorrow's race, the rider improved his pace but failed to reduce the gap on the single lap compared to riders in the leading group. The rider from Vasto will start from the fifteenth position on the grid.

Yonny Hernandez - EnergyT.I . Pramac Racing - lost by a few tenths of a second direct access to Q2, ending the session behind his team-mate, with the thirteenth overall lap time in three combined sessions. The Colombian rider did not show any improvement in the FP4 , and because of a small technical problem ended the session with only eight laps done. During qualifying, Yonny was not able to push as he liked, passing under the checkered flag in ninth position which earned him the nineteenth place on the grid.

Andrea Iannone ( Pramac Racing)

"I'm positive for tomorrow, even if the qualifying did not go as I wanted. We know that this is a narrow circuit and its hard to make our bike turn. In FP4 in race configuration, I was faster, but after six / seven laps, the grip of the tires drops, this is a problem that is encountered by other riders too. Tomorrow during warm up we will try a different setting to get as close as possible to the first group. We will have to wait until tomorrow to see what happens in the race."

Yonny Hernandez ( EnergyT.I . Pramac Racing)

"I'm not very happy with how qualifying went, after the GP of Argentina I had a good feeling for this race where I was hoping to do much better. Tomorrow I hope to do well and to finish in the points again. I had a small electrical problem during the FP4, but before the next session my team solved the problem, allowing me to take part in qualifying. I hope to have a good race tomorrow!"
