Dovizioso leads the way to Q2, Rossi through

Written by  Oct 14, 2017

Andrea Dovizioso remains the fastest man so far at Motegi after FP3, leading the charge to Q2 ahead of title rival Marc Marquez.

Aeix Espargaro remains third, just ahead of Ducati Team’s Jorge Lorenzo.

The biggest news saw Italian Valentino Rossi dig deep after a tough time for the Yamaha factory bikes in the wet on Friday, and the nine-time World Champion managed to get into the top ten and then the top five.

Teammate Maverick Viñales was the big name left out, and the Spaniard will head through Q1.

Johann Zarco goes through once more in P6, ahead of a positive weekend so far for Andrea Iannone in seventh. Danilo Petrucci, after a difficult Aragon, was back in the mix in eighth.

Dani Pedrosa went safely through in P9, with Alex Rins the final automatic entrant to Q2 after proving one of the 12 riders to improve his time on Saturday morning – making it both Hamamatsu factory machines moving through.
