MotoGP Australia: Marquez leads Rossi in warm up

Marc Marquez posts the fastest time in a dry morning warm-up at Phillip Island but Valentino Rossi is close behind.
Marc Marquez has shown his speed in fully dry conditions at Phillip Island by topping the MotoGP warm-up session.

Having secured pole position on Saturday, Marquez was fastest with a lap time of 1m 29.897s. Despite qualifying a lowly 15th, Valentino Rossi was quick, and the only other rider to lap in the 1m 29s, 0.09s off the Spaniard.

Maverick Viñales was third, just 0.07s slower than Rossi, suggesting both men will be involved in frantic opening laps, as they make their way through from the fifth row.

Cal Crutchlow was fourth fastest, 0.3s off Marquez with Jorge Lorenzo showing considerably better than his qualifying disaster on Saturday. Aleix Espargaro was just behind in sixth.

Pol Espargaro (seventh), Andrea Dovizioso (eighth), Jack Miller (ninth) and Danilo Petrucci (tenth) rounded out the top ten.
