First blood to Marquez



Marc Marquez got the better of title rival Andrea Dovizioso as practice for the San Marino MotoGP got underway at the Misano circuit on Friday morning.

Danilo Petrucci early benchmark 1:39.311 before lowering the benchmark to a 1:35.872.

After 20 minutes Marquez came to the fore as he shaved over a second off Petrucci's best, crossing the line with a time of 1:34.480, while his Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa slotted into second place.

Marquez, runner up in the championship, continued to up his pace, the first rider into the 1:33s.

The Honda teammates held onto the 1-2 ahead of Petrucci but that changed in the final 10 minutes.

While Marquez maintained P1, lowering his best time to a 1:33.556, Ducati's Michele Pirro finished second, 0.432s down on the Honda rider.

Championship leader Dovizioso was third ahead of Cal Crutchlow while Petrucci fell to fifth place, 0.663s off the pace.

Jorge Lorenzo put in a late burst to claim sixth place ahead of Pedrosa and Maverick Vinales.

Monster Tech 3 teammates Johann Zarco, who was a late faller at Turn 6, and Jonas Folger completed the top 10.
