In past years there were three practices and one qualifying session for each class to determine the grid for the race. This year MotoGP is using a new format with two qualifying sessions. Times set in practice will dictate whether the rider will be in the faster qualifying session, aka Q1, or second slower Q2 of each class. The once 60-minute session will now be 80 minutes, leaving an awkward time for TV programming. With the video pass, all practices and qualifying are online without editing.
