Catalunya MotoGP - Free Practice (3) Results

Rins and Suzuki take over at the top during a frantic Free Practice 3 for the Catalunya MotoGP.

Quartararo, who recently underwent arm-pump surgery. suffered his first fall as a MotoGP rider but still held on to second on the timesheets.

Petronas team-mate Morbidelli suffered a huge highside through the fast penultimate turn and missed the closing stages while undergoing medical checks. The Italian was later declared fit to continue.

Marquez was angry at team-mate Lorenzo after being held up at the end of the session.

The top ten riders after FP3 (combined times) receive direct access to the second and final part of qualifying.
