Marquez tops Japanese GP FP1 as rain mixes it up

Written by  Oct 13, 2017

Honda's Marc Marquez began the Japanese GP as he will want to continue it, supreme in the rain and topping the timesheets by almost nine tenths.

Aleix Espargaro was the man who got closest to the reigning Champion, with Scott Redding third.

The highest profile incident in the session saw Jorge Lorenzo sideswiped out of Turn 9 by a crash from Cal Crutchlow, but the five-time World Champion walked away and ended the session P4 – just ahead of teammate Andrea Dovizioso.
