Quartararo quickest during morning warm-up for the Andalucia MotoGP at Jerez.

Reigning MotoGP champion Marc Marquez attempted a return to action on Saturday, just four days after surgery to plate a fractured right arm, but withdrew after qualifying.

Crutchlow (wrist fracture) and Rins (dislocated shoulder) made their injury comebacks on Friday and should be starting their first race of the season today, although Rins was at the back of the field after only 4 laps in warm-up.

This afternoon's race is set to be one of the hottest in recent memory.
