Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) was the man to beat in a damp MotoGP™ FP3 session at the Monster Energy Grand Prix ÄŒeské republiky, his 2:04.279 was enough to beat second fastest Maverick Vinales (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) by 0.588 as Team Suzuki Ecstar’s test rider Sylvain Guintoli ends the session in third place.

Overnight and morning rain meant the Automotodrom Brno was wet for the premier class riders and this meant one thing; the top 10 from FP2 have booked themselves an automatic Q2 place. However, all the riders went out for a spin in the wet conditions as the threat of rain later on could mean a damp qualifying, and immediately it was Marquez who set the pace. At one stage, the number 93 was over two seconds clear of the field but on a quickly drying circuit, the riders were able to improve their times and close the gap to the Championship leader.
