Andrea Dovizioso made the most of a drying Red Bull Ring to top the timesheet in Friday's second practice for the Austrian MotoGP.

Following rain earlier in the afternoon, MotoGP's second practice got off to a slow start with just five times on the board 15 minutes in.

As the track began to dry out a bit more, the action heated up.

Marc Marquez was the first to close in on the FP1 times, clocking a 1:24.649 to lead the way with 20 minutes remaining.

However, in the final five minutes he dropped down to sixth place as others found a late burst of speed.

Andrea Dovizioso finished quickest of all with a 1:24.046, 0.234s ahead of Maverick Vinales.

Dani Pedrosa was third ahead of Johann Zarco, Jorge Lorenzo and Marquez. The Spaniard was 0.603s off the pace.

Cal Crutchlow was seventh fastest with Aleix Espargaro, Scott Redding and Alvaro Bautista completing the top ten.
