Andrea Dovizioso will start from the fourth row of the grid in the MotoGP Portuguese Grand Prix which, for the first time, will be held tomorrow at the spectacular Autódromo Internacional do Algarve in Portimão. The rider from Romagna, who gained access directly to Q2 by finishing fourth in this morning's FP3, was unable to go beyond the twelfth fastest time in qualifying, stopping the clock at 1:39.587, only 695 thousandths of a second off Oliveira's pole position.
Danilo Petrucci, who is still struggling to find himself comfortable on his bike at the Portuguese race track, will start from the sixth row in the last GP of the 2020 season. Twentieth at the end of the first three free practice sessions, the rider from Terni had to take part in the Q1 session, which he closed with the eighth fastest time in 1:40.091, and therefore he will start from the eighteenth position.
Jack Miller has been the protagonist of a great qualifying session today. After topping the timesheets in FP3, the Australian rider of the Pramac Racing Team closed the official qualifying session in third place, taking for the fifth time this year a front-row start for tomorrow's race.

"I am a little disappointed with the result achieved today in qualifying: compared to yesterday we had managed to take several steps forward. It won't be an easy race starting so far back, as here, in Portimão, there are not many overtaking spots. In any case, our pace for the race is good, and our direct rivals in the championship are not far off. Tomorrow it will be crucial to get a good start off the grid."
