It takes a lot to make Marc Marquez's greatest saves list, but Saturday at the Malaysian MotoGP saw the Repsol Honda rider pull off yet another seemingly impossible rescue.

Marquez lost the front of his RC213V under braking for Turn 1 at Sepang, but was somehow able to keep the bike upright on his knee - with his outside foot hovering in the air and front tyre leaving a long black line as it was dragged across the asphalt.

"When I arrived back in the garage my mechanics asked me, 'how is your knee?'" Marquez smiled. "The knee is okay, but I asked them, 'you saw it on TV?'

"Because sometimes you save them, but they don't catch it on camera. This time it was in slow motion and everything!

"It was a big save. In the end it means we are riding on the limit and tomorrow we will try to be more smooth in the race."

Nonetheless Marquez, who can win his fourth MotoGP title at Sepang on Sunday, proved he can't save them all by falling in qualifying and will start seventh on the grid.
