Morbidelli carried on his run on the medium rear tyre, though it was halted with around 25 minutes of the session left to run after sliding off his Yamaha at the Turn 10 left-hander.

The high wind caused havoc in the preceding Moto3 FP2, and several MotoGP riders were caught out in the first 20 minutes of the session.

Zarco crashed his Avintia Ducati at the Turn 5 left, while Honda’s Stefan Bradl tucked the front of his RC213V going through Turn 2.

Morbidelli’s time was put under threat on Joan Mir’s first flying lap on fresh soft rubber, with the Suzuki rider missing out by 0.062s in the end with under eight minutes to go.

Morbi’s front wheel appeared to touch Zarco’s rear tire. The two bikes flew on, shedding parts—the Yamaha passing between Valentino Rossi and Maverick Viñales, miraculously touching neither. Zarco’s Ducati hit a barrier, shattering its rear wheel, and flew on, again narrowly missing the Yamaha factory riders. Both downed riders were able to walk away. Those who wish to wrangle over possible blame are welcome to do so.

Franco Morbidelli has accepted the blame for the last-lap crash that took both him and fellow Yamaha MotoGP rider Maverick Vinales out of the Argentina "I arrived a bit too fast , and he slowed down a bit more, and these two things didn't go well together."

Meanwhile, FP1’s fastest man Gabriel Rodrigo (Kömmerling Gresini Moto 3) could only find a further four tenths of a second and therefore slipped to eighth. Rounding out the top ten were Raul Fernandez (Sama Qatar Angel Nieto Team) and Dennis Foggia (SKY Racing Team VR46)

on the timesheets.

FP2 proved difficult for the GP20-mounted Ducati riders, with Jack Miller (Pramac) almost a second off the pace in 11th, while Andrea Dovizioso was 1.3s adrift of Morbidelli in 18th.

Francesco Bagnaia was 20th and Danilo Petrucci 2.4s off the pace in 22nd in last, though only Miller completed a soft tyre run on his GP20 in the end.
