Francesco Bagnaia set the fastest time in Saturday's third practice session for the Emilia-Romagna MotoGP, ahead of the Yamahas of Maverick Vinales and Fabio Quartararo.

The Italian who rides for Ducati's satellite team Pramac, clocked an impressive 1 min 31.127sec, half a second quicker than the best time in Friday's two sessions set by South African Brad Binder of KTM.
