Marquez fastest as conditions leave Rossi and Lorenzo in Q1

  Marquez fastest as conditions leave Rossi and Lorenzo in Q1 Marc Marquez topped a wet FP3 session that saw no riders improve on their previous times. The conditions meant that Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo will both have to go through Q1 if they are to start in the top twelve for tomorrow’s race. On combined practice times, Aleix Espargaro continued to head the field after his FP2 time yesterday. Marquez was second, with Dovizioso third. Crutchlow was fourth, with Vinales fifth. Jack Miller will head into Q2, after finishing sixth on combined times. Andrea Iannone was seventh, with Johann Zarco eighth. Dani Pedrosa was ninth, with Pol Espargaro being the final rider making it into Q2 automatically. This means that Rossi and Lorenzo will have to fight to make it into Q2 later on, after disappointing during Friday practice. Lorenzo also crashed during FP3, along with Marquez and Zarco. Conditions yet again play a big part in proceedings at Phillip Island. The riders will head out later to decide the grid for tomorrow’s race in Qualifying.

Cal Crutchlow believes Jorge Lorenzo should accept more blame than him for the pair’s collision in first MotoGP practice for the Japanese Grand Prix.

With five minutes left on the clock in the opening session at a soaked Motegi, Crutchlow was on a flying lap when he came across a touring Lorenzo into the Vcorner at Turn 9.

The British rider lost the rear end of his LCR Honda has he braked and slammed into the side of Lorenzo.

While sorry for the incident, Crutchlow – who ended Friday’s running ninth overall – felt he was forced to brake more because Lorenzo was riding too slow, and this resulted in the spectacular smash.

Lorenzo slams Zarco over 'very aggressive' pass

  Lorenzo slams Zarco over 'very aggressive' pass Jorge Lorenzo has branded Johann Zarco’s overtake on him at Turn 9 in the early stages of the MotegiMotoGP as a ‘Playstation‘ move and ‘very aggressive’. The pair were debating fourth place on the fourth lap of a rain–lashed Japanese Grand Prix when Zarco went for an overtake on the Spaniard at the V Corner at Turn 9. Twitter: That was CLOSE! Maybe too close? JZ5 barges his way through on JL99! #JapaneseGP (@MotoGP) The Tech3 rider was able to get ahead of the Spaniard, but not without making a small touch. Lorenzo was visibly frustrated with Zarco, and expressed his anger with the pass to him after the race – though Zarco felt he had done nothing wrong. Lorenzo eluded to Zarco’s previous run–ins on track this season – which received similar backlash from riders – and wants the Tech3 rider’s behaviour to be discussed at the next Safety Commission meeting. “You saw what happened,” Lorenzo, who finished sixth at Motegi, said. “It’s not the first he’s done this kind of thing – with me but also with two or three other riders. “But he keeps doing it as though he’s playing the Playstation on time attack, like there’s no–one at the side; very aggressive. “I went to his box but he doesn’t understand he’s doing something bad and he won’t change. “Someone should tell him to be more clam. He things he’s right and doing good, and that you or we need to be careful – not that he has to calm down.

“I’m sorry for him because I hit him, and it looks like I’m completely the villain,”

“But he was going really slow on the racing line.

“I was going really fast, and if you look at the rider ahead of him (Tech3’sKohtaNozane), he brakes later than me.

“But I had to brake harder because I was going to hit Jorge.

“I locked the front on the water. He knew I was coming, and he was six seconds slower than his previous lap.

“I crashed into him, so it doesn’t look good for me. We’re not going to agree on the situation, for sure.

“I didn’t want to take him out, and it was a big crash. I think it was 50/50, more 60/40 in his favour.”

Lorenzo took a trip to the medical centre to have his hand looked at, which he thought he may have broken after experiencing extreme pain shortly after the incident.

Marquez dominates wet Motegi FP1

  Marquez dominates wet Motegi FP1 Championship leader Marc Marquez dominated a soaking first practice for the Japanese Grand Prix from Motegi, with Aprilia’sAleixEspargaro his nearest challenger in second. Avintia Ducati’s Hector Barbera was the early pacesetter in the sodden first session with a 2m00.685s, though this was soon eclipsed by Yamaha’s Maverick Vinales with a 1m59.344s. Typically finding the going tough in wet conditions on the YZR–M1, Vinales – who is third in the standings and 28 points off of the lead – lowered his benchmark to a 1m58.303s with 30 minutes left on the clock. Marquez demoted his fellow Spaniard almost immediately, however, with a 1m58.303s and improved to a 1m56.349s to go almost two seconds clear at just over half distance. Nearest title rival Andrea Dovizioso – who comes into this round 16 points back – was able to briefly cut down the Honda rider’s advantage to 0.391 seconds as he jumped up to second, though was soon shuffled back to fifth while Marquez improved to a 1m55.418s. As the field pushed on in the final few minutes, several riders were caught out by the conditions. Suzuki’s Andrea Iannone slid off his GSX–RR at Turn 8, while Cal Crutchlow lost control of his LCR Honda under braking for Turn 9 and collided with Jorge Lorenzo – both walked away unscathed.

Cleared of any injury, Lorenzo returned to action in the afternoon to end the day fourth fastest.

The Spaniard admitted Crutchlow came to see him afterwards to apologise after the pair had a heated exchange in the gravel, though the LCR rider insists no apology was offered on his part.

“I don’t think we are going to agree on the incident,” he added.

“The main thing is we’re both OK. I’ve been to see him to make sure he’s OK, and that’s it.”
