Maverick Vinales put Yamaha on top of the timesheets with a new Le Mans lap record of 1m 31.619s during Saturday morning's FP3 session.

At one stage M1 riders were filling the top three places courtesy of Vinales, Valentino Rossi and Monster Yamaha Tech3's Johann Zarco.

But Marc Marquez ultimately split the inline four-cylinder machines, despite riding with a damaged Repsol Honda in the form of a missing wing from his fairing – and a hole in the elbow of his leathers - after remounting following a low-side fall.
