Marc Marquez was the fastest rider in MotoGP Free Practice Three, held Saturday morning at Sachsenring, in Germany. Marquez did a time of 1:21.903 on his Repsol Honda RC213V prototype.

Aleix Espargaro was the second-fastest in the dry session with a time of 1:22.129 on his Avintia Blusens ART-Aprilia CRT-class machine.
