Polesitter Quartararo beats Viñales on Sunday morning

The reigning Champion was 0.4s clear of his former teammate as Marc Marquez walks away from a huge Turn 7 crash

Reigning World Champion and Pertamina Grand Prix of Indonesia polesitter Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™) continued to look strong in Warm Up, as the Frenchman beat second place Maverick Viñales (Aprilia Racing) by 0.407s with a 1:32.001. Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) finished P3, as we witness a horrifying crash for Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team).

The eight-time World Champion suffered a shockingly huge highside towards the end of the 20-minute session. The rear of his RC213V suddenly let go at the rapid right-hander, but thankfully the eight-time World Champion was able to walk away from the scary incident. The number 93 headed to the medical centre from a check-up.

It was Marc Marquez who finished P4 in the Sunday morning stint, the Spaniard finished one place ahead of HRC teammate Takaaki Nakagami (LCR Honda Idemitsu).
