Marc Marquez leads a MotoGP session for the first time since his comeback from injury, during a cold and wet Free Practice 3 for the French MotoGP at Le Mans.

Meanwhile, Morbidelli fell to his knees in pit lane while practicing a bike swap at the end of the session and had to be helped into the Petronas garage.

Update from Petronas: 'When practicing a bike swap during the FP3, Franco twisted his left knee slightly. He has been checked by the medical staff and been declared fit to continue with the weekend. He will undergo treatment in Clinica Mobile before FP4 starts.'
