Repsol Honda's Spanish rider Marc Marquez takes part in the third MotoGP free practice of the Catalunya Grand Prix at the Catalunya racetrack in Montmelo, near Barcelona, on June 15, 2013.

Marquez, who suffered a high-speed crash at the Italian Grand Prix just two weeks ago, had been slightly off the pace in Friday's first two practice sessions, but found his rhythm on Saturday morning as he recorded the fastest lap despite American Nicky Hayden breaking the top speed record at the Montmelo track with a charge of 341.4 kilometres per hour (212.1 mph).
