Suzuki's Maverick Vinales fastest during extended FP3 session on a revised track layout, following the tragic death of Luis Salom in Friday's Moto2 practice.

Marc Marquez had a strange fall on an out-lap, before returning to claim the second fastest time. In general the new tighter layout seemed to help the Hondas relative to yesterday, while Yamaha suffered.

Valentino Rossi was as low as 14th with just a few minutes to go, before snatching the fourth best lap time.

Because of the new track layout, only this morning's lap times were used to decided the top ten riders to be given direct access to Qualifying 2 this afternoon...
