Arbolino was again encountering traffic and at the first split, he was 0.6 seconds down. This wasn’t happening for the Valencia GP winner, but Ogura was getting the business done. Ogura took the chequered flag and jumped to P2, Darryn Binder (CIP Green Power) then shoved him down to P3 but Ogura was safe. Just. However, Arbolino’s afternoon was a disaster. The Snipers rider ended Q1 in P13, signalling a P27 start.
