Marquez tops wet FP3, Q2 entry unchanged

Reigning Champion crashes but stays top, with Lorenzo also down as well as out of Q2 alongside Rossi

Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) topped a wet third practice session at Phillip Island despite a crash near the end of the session as conditions began to improve. Johann Zarco (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) was a late charger to go second, ahead of another impressive performance from Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Pol Espargaro.

Zarco was an early crasher in the session, as well as the headline drama as Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team) suffered a fast crash. The five-time World Champion was up and walking away but headed to the Medical Center for a check.

With rain affecting play, Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing Team Gresini) therefore remains top on the march to Q2, followed by Marquez, Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team), Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda), Maverick Viñales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP), Jack Miller (EG 0,0 Marc VDS), Andrea Iannone (Team Suzuki Ecstar), Zarco, Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) and Pol Espargaro.

As well as Lorenzo not being given the chance to improve by the weather, Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) is the other big name now left heading for Q1.

Qualifying begins from 15:10 (GMT +11).
