Marquez makes it through Qualifying 1 to take pole position for the first ever Thai MotoGP, ahead of Rossi and Dovizioso.

Jorge Lorenzo has withdrawn from the remainder of the weekend after injuring his left wrist during a huge Friday afternoon highside, which followed foot injuries at Aragon.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