18/27: Quartararo is the quickest guy on track, but it's too litte too late for the home hero. He's honing in on Lorenzo, but he had so much more potential than 10th place today. He's currently 11th.

12/27: Marquez posts a 1m 32.362 - the fastest lap of the race, and his lead keeps coming up, two tenths at a time. Maybe the best Miller and Dovizioso can hope for is 2nd with the reigning champion in this kind of form.
