Live updates from Saturday's MotoGP free practice and qualifying sessions at Losail in Qatar!

Miller, Bagnaia and Zarco formed an all-Ducati top three on Friday while the likes of Mir, Rossi and Honda's Espargaro face a major challenge to try and claim direct access to Qualifying 2 after being left outside the top ten and with track conditions in FP3 expected to be slower than on Friday.
 
As such they are likely to battle for the final two places in Qualifying 1, before joining the ten quickest riders in fighting for the second pole position of the season, Miller having qualified on pole last weekend.
