Advantage Marquez as rain mixes it up in FP1

Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) began the Japanese GP as he will want to continue it, supreme in the rain and topping the timesheets by almost nine tenths. Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing Team Gresini) was the man who got closest to the reigning Champion, with Scott Redding (Octo Pramac Racing) third.
