Aprilia’s Aleix Espargaro stays top of his home Catalan MotoGP timesheets during Saturday practice, followed by the Ducatis of Francesco Bagnaia and Franco Morbidelli.

Bagnaia - wearing Ayrton Senna tribute gloves and helmet this morning to mark the 30th anniversary of the F1 legend’s death – was just 0.012s slower than Espargaro.

Marc Marquez, already heading to this morning’s Qualifying 1 after being left directly behind his brother Alex in 12th on Friday, fell just ahead of his team-mate at Turn 5 this morning.

LCR Honda’s Johann Zarco fell later in the session.

Qualifying 1, for riders outside of the top ten on Friday afternoon, will now begin.
