Twitter is none too pleased with Texans quarterback Tom Savage
The Jaguars piled up six first-half sacks of Savage , who rarely looked comfortable in the pocket. They had more yards on Watson's first drive as a pro than Savage managed the whole first half.

Jorge Lorenzo was an early race leader, looking nearly untouchable on the factory Ducati until a mistake jettisoned him from the race and allowing hard charging satellite compatriot Petrucci to take the lead - a position he held until Marquez's last lap pass. The former world champion however had an early crash at Turn 6 on Lap 7 which pushed out of the lead.

"I did a good first lap, then I wanted to try the other tyres", explained the reigning world champion who lost his overall lead to Dovizioso last time out in Silverstone.

The wet is certainly not the ideal terrain for the Yamaha rider who had to settle for fourth place ahead of Pirro and Miller.

Just two-tenths split the top three, whilst fourth to tenth was covered by a further seven-tenths in a closely fought session. The Honda rider made the switch to his second bike with about 17 laps to go, opting for slicks in the hope of the track drying out. Meanwile, Dovizioso couldn't match up to the race leaders but defending his position in third. The final sector had Marquez dive down the inside of Turn 1 and passed Petrucci as he tried a switch-back but failed. Marquez then pulled into the lead and took the win. Seventh over the line was a strong comeback from Scott Redding (Octo Pramac Racing), ahead of a quality ride from rookie Alex Rins (Team Suzuki Ecstar).
