    Jorge Martin (Pramac Ducati) claimed back-to-back pole positions with a new lap record 1'57.790s, following Australian GP.
    Enea Bastianini (Gresini Ducati) took 2nd behind Jorge Martin by 0.456s. Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda) advanced to Q2 from Q1 and took 3rd.
    Marc Bezzecchi (Mooney VR46 Ducati) heads row two ahead of Alex Rins (Suzuki Ecstar) and Luca Marini (Mooney VR46 Ducati).
    Franco Morbidelli (Monster Yamaha) was 7th, but will have to serve two long lap penalties in the race for impeding in FP3. Maverick Vinales (Aprilia Racing) finished 9th.
    World Championship leader Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo) advanced to Q2 from Q1 along with Marc Marquez, but he crashed at Turn 4 and finished 9th.
    World Championship Title contender Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing) crashed at Turn 8 and finished 10th.
    Another World title contender Fabio Quartararo (Monster Yamaha) was forced to abort his final flying lap when he suffered a front-end moment going through Turn 8, where he crashed in FP4, picking up a minor finger injury on his left hand. Finally he was 12th.

    Jorge Martin said, “Phillip Island was great, also Austin. I mean, I'm normally making good laps and when I have the feeling, so the good thing is that the feeling is back. It's important to finish the season like this. I thought somebody would improve on the second stint so I pushed a bit harder and it came well. I thought that maybe I was a bit on my limit, almost crashing at some points of the track, but anyway happy, happy, really happy. I feel like we have the pace for the win so I am super-happy about everything. It's not easy to dip into the 1:57s as it was so humid today. I managed 1:58s in my first run, in which I made two mistakes. I expected the other guys to improve and go faster, so I tried harder in my next attempt. I am really happy. We were struggling in the middle of the season with the front end. We made some changes to the bike, which is why I lost some confidence. But I am happy with our setup now, and we are not touching anything on the bike.”
