Marquez leads morning warm-up for the German MotoGP, held on a damp but drying track after overnight rain.

Riders switched from wets to slicks during the session, with Marquez not venturing out until the closing stages.

The Repsol Honda rider will be seeking a tenth successive victory at the Sachsenring this afternoon.

Quartararo suffered a 'very small partial dislocation of his left shoulder' while saving a big tank-slapper on Saturday morning.

Jorge Lorenzo is absent after fractures to his vertebrae last weekend at Assen and is being replaced by HRC test and wild-card rider Bradl.

LCR riders Nakagami and Crutchlow are both carrying leg injuries, the Japanese in a lot of pain after being taken down by Rossi at Assen, while the Englishman damaged his knee in a bicycle accident.

Bagnaia, who missed FP2 after a big Friday morning fall, returned to action on Saturday and featured on top of the timesheets during part of warm-up.
