Marquez dominates FP3 in Australia, despite crash

marc Marquez thống trị phiên đua thử 3 ở Úc bất chấp sự cố

Marc Marquez dominated a wet FP3 at the Australian MotoGP, despite walking away from a crash late in the session.

The world championship leader saw his momentum halted in the rainy conditions at Phillip Island after a low speed crash at Siberia.

But by that stage, Marquez already held the advantage after the Repsol Honda driver produced the fastest time of the session with a lap of 1’38.522.

With Marquez off the track, Johann Zarco – who had earlier crashed at turn 10 – was able to move into the second, while Pol Espargaro continued his good form from FP2 by finishing third fastest.

Karel Abraham, Danilo Petrucci, Dani Pedrosa and Cal Crutchlow were all quicker than world championship challenger Andrea Dovizioso after the Italian was more than a second slower than Marquez.

While Marquez was able to come away from the turn eight crash unscathed, fellow Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo wasn’t so fortunate after the Ducati rider tumbled into the gravel.

Lorenzo appeared to have hurt his knee in the crash after he had been the early pace-setter in the session.
