In the afternoon, he posted the fastest speed of the day at 342km/h (212mph). On his next run, the bike become out of shape at 337.9km/h (209.9mph) and seconds later the rider was crawling out of the Turn 1 gravel trap. After being transported to the circuit Medical Centre by ambulance, he was announced as having escaped with no more than a bruised chin. "Just after the hill on the straight, I grabbed for the brakes but I (lost) the front," he explained later in the afternoon, having missed the usual post-session press call. "I tried to save it but the bike was pulling me towards the wall, so I jumped from the bike to avoid hitting it. I hit my chin hard and strained my neck quite badly; I also have some contusions to my right shoulder, arm and leg, but other than that I'm okay. Thanks to all the medical team that were quickly on the scene to assist me. Now I need to rest and see how I feel later tonight and in the morning."
"Bearing in mind the crash he had, he is okay," Team Principal Livio Suppo told motogp.com. "His chin was very swollen but, considering the speed, he has been very lucky…he jumped off the bike to avoid the wall, but the crash was really big.
"In theory there is nothing broken, so it should be possible, but for sure it is better to wait until tomorrow morning to see how he feels."

Spies is out for the rest of the weekend. Dovizioso is also looking shaky.

Marquez was considerably slower in FP3, probably still suffers from that huge crash yesterday. I'm wondering, if it's just that, or he's had to take that warning seriously (any sensible man would, but I admit he's no ordinary man) and maybe now back off just a little?

(ok in fact MM did his personal best in FP3, but his speed compared to others is slower, he's 12th and has to take part in first QP).

Broken bone, top of humerus. That'll slow him down some. Another crash in fp3, too. Gravel dump, but it can't be helping his confidence much.

I wondered about possibly the same thing during FP4... my computer gave funny ´popping´ sounds, and the live picture froze for milliseconds each time when that sound came. Really annoying (but not 100% sure, if it was the feed or the computer).

All data connections in and out of the circuit are of laughably low quality. Internet about as fast as the 9600 baud modem your grandma still uses. Even TV feed out of circuit for internet site is dog slow.

The irony of this event being sponsored by an Italian telecommunications giant is not lost on the assembled press.

Shades of Jorge's rookie season. Brilliant performances interspersed with spectacular get-offs.

Been back and forth with tech support (Dorna), they insist it's on my end.

Marquez & Rossi dropped from 2nd and 3rd to 6th and 7th.....

Pedro takes pole with the fastest ever lap around Mugello on a motorcycle.
