Aragon MotoGP: Jack Miller leads Ducati quintet in FP3 as Aleix Espargaro, Marc Marquez miss out on top ten | MotoGP

A strong start to FP3 from Marquez saw him lead the way by over two tenths from reigning MotoGP champion Fabio Quartararo

With lap times around 1.5 seconds off the fastest day-one time set by Martin, Marco Bezzecchi went a long way to reducing that margin after going seven tenths clear of Marquez. 

Making it a rookie 1-2 for Ducati, Fabio Di Giannantonio went second quickest behind Bezzecchi. 

Bouncing back from his mixed day-one which included two crashes, Espargaro then put his Aprilia RS-GP22 machine in third place. 

Then came a stunning ‘save’ from Marquez as the eight-time world champion momentarily lost the front-end at the final corner, before somehow picking the bike back up on his left shoulder.

Marquez ran off-track as he continued to pull off what was a very long front-end slide.

Marquez was not so lucky later in the session as he suffered a fast crash at turn seven. 

The Spaniard was back to his feet immediately and appeared fine, however, his Repsol Honda machine was completely wrecked. 

Starting his time attack run very early, Joan Mir moved into the top ten with P9, one place behind future team-mate Marquez.
