UPDATE: Marc Marquez will not take part in Sunday's Andalucia MotoGP.

Quartararo takes back-to-back pole positions at Jerez after Vinales loses his best time for running over a kerb.

Bagnaia completes the front row as top Ducati, with Rossi a competitive fourth and Oliveira the leading KTM in fifth.

Reigning MotoGP champion Marquez, who broke his right arm in last Sunday's race, returned to action on Saturday, just four days after surgery to plate the fracture.

But the Repsol Honda star, 16th in final practice, pitted without setting a flying lap in Qualifying 1 and walked out of the garage.

Younger brother Alex then fell at the end of Q1 and appeared to be nursing his right arm, but the team later reported no serious injuries.

Fellow injured riders Crutchlow (wrist fracture) and Rins (dislocated shoulder) made their comebacks on Friday, although Rins sat out FP3 this morning.
