Marquez fastest during a scorching hot Friday practice at the Aragon MotoGP.

The temperatures meant many riders used the hard rear tyre this afternoon - the leading Honda riders also running the hard front - before soft rear tyres were fitted for flying laps in the closing minutes.

Tito Rabat is still recovering from leg injuries at Silverstone and has been replaced by WorldSBK rider Jordi Torres, making his MotoGP debut this weekend. Torres is using the GP16 machines of Simeon, who has been handed Rabat's GP17s.
