The fortunes of MotoGP's title contenders pivoted from moment to moment in Sunday's championship-deciding race at Valencia.
Spain's Marc Marquez was fifth with a time of 1:31.243, but the Spaniard later crashed on the second turn of Free Practice 2 - his 26th fall of the season - to end day in the sixth spot.
Marquez's Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa won the race from France's Johann Zarco in second.
He needed to finish 11th to ensure that nothing Dovizioso could do would make a difference and with 21 points to make up, the Italian knew that he had to win the race and hope for another mistake to end Marquez's race.
Newly crowned six-time champion Marc Marquez admitted to making "stupid mistakes" - and after an incredible save, he had resigned himself to losing the championship until Andrea Dovizioso made a mistake of his own.

Asked what went through his mind when he saw Marquez nearly crash out ahead of him, Dovizioso replied: "We are not surprised about that!" When I lose the front, I say, okay, I will stay with my bike and see where we finish.
"I am happy that I achieved my goal of being in front, because the start is very important on this track", Marquez said on Saturday.
"When I see that [Jorge] Lorenzo and Dovi did the mistake [running into the gravel with six laps to go]". This is a standard thing for Marc.
