15:32 - Our LIVE coverage of the Jerez Sprint Race ends here, thank you for following it with us! Stay syntonized on GPOne for all the protagonists' statements and remember the appointment with our Sports Bar tonight at 7:30 pm. Stay Tuned!

15:30 - Today's Sprint Race delivered a script worthy of the best Hollywood thrillers....he came out on top for Jorge Martìn, who took home a crucial victory especially on the day when almost all of his high ranking rivals went down. The first big guy to fall was Pecco Bagnaia, who was involved in a crash with Binder but remained standing. Then fell Bezzecchi, Di Giannantonio, Vinales.

But the most impressive twist was given by Marc Marquez, who was in the lead and fell seemingly for no reason, paving the way for Martìn. Just before, Binder, Alex Marquez and Bastianini had also fallen, all in the same corner and without any contact between them, as if there was oil on the track (it was a wet patch). Pedro Acosta took great advantage of this, second ahead of another miracle worker, namely Fabio Quartararo! The Frenchman started 23rd on the grid, but finished on the podium thanks to a great start and then taking advantage of the crashes in front.

Third place for Dani Pedrosa (after 8sec penalty to Quartararo for low tyre pressure) ahead of Morbidelli and Fabio, in his first prestigious result with the Pramac Ducati. Sixth was Raul Fernandez ahead of Marc Marquez, who got back on the bike after the crash for a good comeback. Eighth was Augusto Fernandez, with Oliveira and Mir rounding out the top ten. Fourteen fell and really it will be to understand the motivations of this demolition derby.

It's a good duel between Bastianini and Binder, who doesn't let up. Savadori crashed, but resumes the race.

14:55 - Less than 5 minutes to the Sprint Race warm-up lap!

14:53 - Good crowd presence in the stands in Jerez!

14:52 - Here comes Bagnaia, who will have to guess a perfect start today to hope to fight for the podium. Pecco will start from the seventh row of the grid.

14:50 - Welcome to our LIVE coverage of the Sprint Race in Jerez, riders already on the grid and track almost completely dry. The race will be run in unseen conditions.

Everything is ready in Jerez for the Sprint Race that will start at 3:00 p.m. and will see Marc Marquez start from the first row of the grid at the Andalusian track. Marc was flawless in qualifying, taking better advantage than the others of the weather conditions that affected the morning in Jerez. Alongside him on the front row will be Marco Bezzecchi, a wet weather specialist, and Jorge Martìn, who continues to offer top-level performances and wants to defend his lead in the overall.

On the second row will be Binder, Di Giannantonio and Alex Marquez, while the entire third row will also be Ducati with Bagnaia 7th ahead of Morbidelli, who went through Q1, and Enea Bastianini . All 8 Ducatis are in the first three rows then, with the only exception being Binder's KTM. Tenth on the grid is Pedro Acosta, who crashed in Q2 just as he seemed poised to take his first MotoGP pole. In the race he will undoubtedly be a tough nut to crack.

It didn't go well for the factory Aprilia, with Vinales and Espargarò rounding out the fourth row with the 11th and 12th times, but the situation is far worse for Yamaha, with the M1 failing to express itself at all in the wet with Quartararo and Rins. The two will occupy the 23rd and 25th boxes on the grid, in a weekend that is proving to be very difficult for the Iwata-based manufacturer.

Our LIVE coverage of the Sprint Race will start a few minutes before 15:00, Stay Tuned!
