The first 250cc qualifying saw very different fortunes for the two Mapfre Aspar riders. While Hector Faubel achieved his best provisional position in the class so far with a 6th position, his teammate Alvaro Bautista struggled with the setup of his bike and the suspension. After being on the provisional front row for a big part of the qualifying he was relegated to 11th position in the end, unable to improve his laptime due to a lot of traffic on the track.
