Remarkable Rossi on front row as Vinales takes Aragon pole

Rossi completes Aragon free practice

Rossi is back on his Yamaha in double quick time after an operation on the leg fractures he sustained in a training crash at the end of last month.

He was taken to the Ospedale Civile di Urbino hospital for tests, where the extent of his injuries were confirmed.

However, the 38-year-old, who limped to his bike, did enough to make it into the second qualifying session, proving he is not in Aragon to make up the numbers.

What has Valentino Rossi said about his return?

While the Hondas dominated at Aragon in practice sessions earlier, it was Movistar Yamaha man Maverick Vinales who stole pole position from the Repsol Honda squad in a closely fought qualifying session.

"One week ago [I] started to think that maybe was possible to ride at Aragon".

"The conditions were a little bit more hard compared to this morning, to make a good lap, but anyway the team did a great job so I'm really happy", Maverick Vinales says.
