Dovizioso stays top of the timesheets during FP3 at the Thai MotoGP, but Marquez misses out on a top ten place after a last-lap fall and will need to take part in Qualifying 1.

Lorenzo has withdrawn from the remainder of the weekend after injuring his left wrist during a huge Friday afternoon highside, which followed foot injuries at Aragon.

Michelin has designed new rear tyres using data from the test and there are four rear-slick options to choose from.

Tito Rabat is still recovering from leg fractures at Silverstone and again replaced by WorldSBK rider Jordi Torres. Torres has the GP16 machines of Simeon, who is on Rabat's GP17s.
