2015 Assen MotoGP FP1 Result: Rossi Flies As Marquez Falters

Free Practice opened with Marc Marquez, on his first lap out, planting himself in a dyke as he crashed his Honda. Ten minutes in, his teammate Dani Pedrosa had set the quickest time and set about beating it one lap later. Valentino Rossi got within two hundredths of a second of Pedrosa's time almost half an hour in, with Jorge Lorenzo and Bradley Smith not far off.

Marquez went third quickest with five minutes left in the session, followed by the quickest time a lap later only to be deposed by Valentino Rossi. Pedrosa hit traffic on a potentially quickest lap, but once the flag was out, only Rossi and Marquez were on pace for the top spot. Rossi set the quickest time after the flag was out with Marquez locked behind Bradley Smith on track.

The top four places were taken by the factory Hondas and Yamahas ahead of the the satellite Yamahas and Suzukis. Ducati's best time was set by Dovizioso in 9th in what was a very forgettable session for them.
