UPDATE from Petronas: "News about Fabio: rider is OK. He has pain in the hip, but Xrays confirmed that nothing is broken."

Vinales leads Free Practice 3 for the Aragon MotoGP as world championship leader Quartararo is taken to the medical centre for checks after a nasty accident in the final 10mins.

The Petronas Yamaha star lost the front of his M1 on the kerbing for Turn 14, then was spat off into a highside. Clearly in pain, and after unsuccessfully trying to walk away, the Frenchman was placed on a stretcher.

Another title contender, Dovizioso, also fell during the session while fellow Ducati rider Miller lost his best time due to a yellow flag.

The top ten riders after FP3 (combined times) receive direct access to the second and final part of qualifying.

Valentino Rossi has been forced to miss this weekend's event after a positive Covid test on Thursday. The Italian is also expected to miss next weekend's second Aragon round.

HRC test rider Bradl is again replacing injured reigning world champion Marc Marquez.
