Dovizioso needed a win and for Marquez to finish outside the top 11 in the season-closing race, but he ran wide with five laps to go to leave his bike in the gravel.

Pedrosa clocked a time of 46 minutes and 8.125 seconds on his Repsol Honda, just 0.337s ahead of Johann Zarco of France (Monster Yamaha Tech 3), reports Efe.

- Only one Spanish rider has won more world titles than Marquez: Angel Nieto, who won 13 World Championships (seven in the 125cc class and six in the 50cc class) between 1969 and 1984.

Marquez had started the race from pole position and led after the start before being passed by Zarco on lap three.

The series which is going to be played in the United States of America , will be a triangular series, as the third team is not decided yet.

It wasn't as clear cut as many expected, however, with Marquez so almost crashing out of the race at the mid-way point, losing the front at turn one and miraculously saving it.

The Italian's task was made more hard by the lack of support from Ducati team-mate Jorge Lorenzo, who was seemingly unwilling to let his colleague past when the pair were fourth and fifth for much of the race.

"I am happy that I achieved my goal of being in front, because the start is very important on this track", Marquez said on Saturday.

Those riders riders all booked a place in Q2, as did 16th-fastest Dovizioso, who managed eighth in the combined times on the strength of a strong Friday lap. "I want to say thank you to the whole team, all the sponsors because we had a great season".

"It's a standard thing for Marc". He recorded his best time early in the session.

The fight for the finish came down to Zarco and Pedrosa, with the latter launching a last-lap attack to earn his second win this year following Jerez.

Ultimately, though, the Spaniard came out on top on home soil to deny Zarco his first MotoGP win and round off a ideal day for the Honda pair.

"Johann was very strong all the race and it was very hard because he was going into the corner very fast". In turn one I lost concentration on the braking point.
