Valentino Rossi snatched second from team-mate Jorge Lorenzo on his last lap.


Marc Marquez
"I'm happy with how the bike is going and with the pace we have. Tomorrow it will be vital to choose our rear tyre well, because with the soft I feel very good but I do not know if we can use it. We will have to wait for the decision from Michelin. We know what my crashes today were due to; the first was down to changing the setup but the second was because we pushed too hard. That is what happens in the qualifying session. Tomorrow we'll give everything we have in the race".
