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.

The signs Quartararo’s 2022 MotoGP title is slipping away from him

Prior to the summer break, the 2022 MotoGP title looked like it was Fabio Quartararo’s to lose. But a crash at Assen and the consequential penalty he had to serve last weekend at Silverstone stopped him from capitalising on a main rival’s injury woes, while a resurgence from another, plus the rise of a former teammate, look set to conspire against the Yamaha rider.
