Dovizioso fastest during FP4 at the German MotoGP.

Marquez, unbeaten at Sachsenring for the last eight years, suffered a lowside fall and was only tenth fastest.

Qualifying 1, for those outside the top ten after third free practice, including Dovizioso and Zarco, will now get underway.

Franco Morbidelli, who fractured his left hand at Assen, withdrew after FP1 and is replaced by former MotoGP racer and present HRC test rider Stefan Bradl.

KTM wild-card Mika Kallio was ruled out after damaging knee ligaments in a big Friday afternoon fall.
