Assen MotoGP qualifying - Start time, how to watch

Yamaha's Maverick Vinales topped both practice sessions at Assen on Friday, bouncing back from his worst showing in MotoGP a week ago at the Sachsenring.

Miguel Oliveira was second for KTM ahead of the second Yamaha of championship leader Fabio Quartararo.

Marc Marquez finished fourth-quickest for Honda but was fortunate to walk away from a major high-side that prevented him from returning to the track in the remainder of the session.
