Alvaro Bautista suffered a massive cloud-grabbing highside in this session, with the bike sliding to full lock on acceleration before punting him into the thin air. The bike didn't look too terribly damaged but Bautista landed with a hard thump from a second-story fall. He got up and walked away, looking like his torso was a bit more compact after the landing.

Pol Espargaro did a crazy Randy Mamola impersonation mid-session by crashing but not hitting the ground. He slid along next to the ghost-ridden bike--at speed--and used the few remaining fingers he had on the bike to climb back aboard and mostly avert a crash.

Ducatis, other than Crutchlow, are still in the game.
