MotoGP: Marquez dominates first Aragon practice

Honda MotoGP rider Marc Marquez was quickest in the opening MotoGP practice session at Aragon.

Marquez led virtually the whole session, although came close to being beaten towards the end by Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia, who closed to within 0.022s of the six-time champion’s time.

However, Marquez, who has won four consecutive MotoGP races at Aragon before missing last year’s double-header because of injury – then went a second faster on a fresh rear-soft tire.
