Marquez leads Viñales and Mir on Sunday morning

Reigning Champion encountered problems in Warm Up but finished top as Spaniards lock out the top three

Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) topped the timesheets in MotoGP™ morning Warm Up at the Gran Premio Red Bull de España despite encountering early issues with his RC213V, his 1:37.595 enough to beat second fastest Maverick Viñales (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) by 0.341, with rookie Joan Mir (Team Suzuki Ecstar) jumping up to third on his final lap.

The Spaniard’s time shunted front row starter Franco Morbidelli (Petronas Yamaha SRT) down to fourth by just 0.009, with Takaaki Nakagami (LCR Honda Idemitsu) continuing his good weekend with a fifth-place finish in Warm Up – 0.524 splitting the Japanese rider from Marquez.

Despite some sort of bike problem, the slowest crash he’ll ever have and a near highside, Marquez heads into race day in Jerez at the summit. He’ll start third, with Fabio Quartararo (Petronas Yamaha SRT) beginning his day with a seventh in Warm Up. Don’t miss the Spanish GP from 14:00 local time (GMT+2)!
