"I don't know who will win this championship but it is awesome to fight like we did today in rainy conditions", said the Repsol Honda rider.

Movistar Yamaha's Maverick Viales is a bit far away, at 196 points, however, he has long shot of winning the title if Marquez or Dovizioso have a bad race or are forced to retire.

With Petrucci now out of the picture, the gap between Marquez and Dovizioso hovered around the half-second mark until Dovizioso made his first attack on lap 19, grabbing the lead at Turn 5.

0249 seconds after Italian pilot, Repsol Honda's Spanish pilot Marc Marquez 2, leader of Octo Praim team behind 10,557 seconds, Italian Danilo Petrucci took 3rd place.

Thrown from his seat and all but crashing, Marquez did well to regain control but the error allowed Dovizioso enough ground to make a comeback for his fifth win of the season.

"I did a few mistakes and, especially in turn 8, I lost a lot.I knew the Ducati would be faster, even on the braking point they were faster, but I try on the last corner", he said. Meanwhile, with the rain that could also affect Saturday's practice and Sunday's race, Andrea Dovizioso and Marc Marquez are the fastest in the 2017 Motegi GP FP1 and FP2.

Marquez, chasing a fourth world title in five years, paid tribute to the victor. "But now we go to other tracks that I normally enjoy more". "It was incredible today, I enjoyed the battle", said the Spaniard.

Andrea Iannone, once again using the "moustache" fairing Suzuki unveiled on Friday, briefly claimed the top spot with a 1m55.499s in the dying stages, before Marquez improved to a 1m55.254s to end the session on top.
