23/26: Just 4 to go. Marquez finally gets his RC213V out of line into T1 but he still makes the apex. Just a tenth of a second separates the pair.

20/26: A smart move by Marquez as Rossi can't automatically respond - we're seeing replays and Rossi made a mistake on the exit of the chicane on lap 19, allowing Marquez to draw alongside.

17/26: Marquez is seriously good through the final sector - he's definitely getting closer as they still make almost identical lap times. Marquez draws alongside at T9 but decides against making the move.
