11/26: Another fastest lap by Quartararo. Less than 0.05s quicker than Marquez, though. His advantage is still just over 0.6s. Back in the pack, Rossi must have a problem because he's dropped behind Rins and Mir in the fight for 6th.

10/26: It's groundhog day: Viñales now matches the leaders on lap 9. He's found that rhythm. But he's 3.1s back. Same old story.

9/26: Quartararo is riding beautifully here. 0.6s in hand now and he's rolling off a succession of 1m 31.0s. Viñales must be spitting feathers, now 3 seconds back.
