2013 Assen MotoGP FP3 Result: Bautista Tops Treacherous Session

A drying track at Assen made conditions difficult for the third and final session of free practice for the MotoGP class. Conditions meant that nobody could improve their times, leaving the riders qualified for the two qualifying sessions this afternoon unchanged.

Alvaro Bautista was the fastest man in an otherwise meaningless session, the Spaniard going out on slicks late on in the session. But it was Marc Marquez who ventured out on slicks first, and he paid the price, suffering a massive highside as he braked for the Ramshoek corner. The Spaniard cracked the little finger in his right hand, but that injury will not prevent him from taking part in qualifying later today.
