Espargaro and home hero Oliveira form a KTM one-two during final practice for the Inaugural Portimao MotoGP round.

Espargaro slid off at Turn 5 early in the session, while Zarco suffered an engine problem at the end, stopping with smoke spewing from his machine.

Nakagami fell at Turn 4 for the second time in as many days and looked to be in pain as he returned to the LCR pits.

Qualifying 1, for those outside the top ten after third free practice, will now get underway.
