Marquez leads Aragon practice laps

Rossi back after double-leg break

Rossi fought manfully on his return just three weeks after a double leg fracture. However, for Jorge Lorenzo, it still was his best outing on the Ducati yet.

South African Darryn Binder also made a welcome if less spectacular return from injury, finishing a game 22nd in the Moto3 race, while big brother Brad took a fighting fifth in Moto2. Vinales has dropped 28 points back, while Rossi has lost fourth to Pedrosa.

But Spaniard Pedrosa was left fuming on his home circuit and blamed Rossi for what he believes was some risky driving when he was trying to pass.

However, he only started his charge after spending the first 12 laps behind Maverick Vinales, and Pedrosa feels that was key in him missing out on the win.

Victory took the Spanish Honda rider to 224 points and moved him clear of Andrea Dovizioso, who was sixth. Tech 3 Yamaha's Johann Zarco finished, this time on the bike.

After a crash in qualifying pushed him to fifth, Marquez's chances of winning the Aragon GP seemed to have trimmed down.

The third row of the grid sees Ducati's Andrea Dovizioso lining up seventh, with Aprilia's Aleix Espargaro eighth and Aspar Ducati's Alvaro Bautista ninth.

The Spaniard commented: "I'm happy with this day, even if it was obviously a bit odd". Miguel Oliveira (KTM) took third after qualifying on pole, closing in on the duo at the front to finish only half a second behind the leader. "The leg, after two practice sessions, is in a good condition, I don't feel a lot of pain". One such incident nearly had him take out Lorenzo, and Rossi in one fail sweep, he managed to recover it only to lose two positions to his rival. Rossi was a further 0.08 seconds behind in P3.

The nine-time world champion's participation in Spain this weekend had been in doubt until Thursday.
