Marquez fended off Dovizioso as Lorenzo increased his advantage, but the defending champion slipped back to third briefly before regaining second spot.
But Rossi was again trumped by Zarco and Marquez, with the Hondarider's eventual session-best of 1m23.459s putting him 0.423 seconds clear.
The Austrian GP started with Marquez on the pole and the Honda rider seemed determined to keep things that way. The former world champion got the definitive lead in the early stages of the race.
Marquez defended his move and admitted that in the moment he forgot about his championship hopes, with the five-time world champion admitting he wouldn't be able to sleep on Sunday night without knowing if he could've won the race, even if it jeopardised his championship lead.
Dovizioso, who was second in Austria to his then team-mate Andrea Iannone past year, took advantage of the battle between Marquez and Lorenzo to snatch the lead.
However, that was only a temporary setback, as Marquez was soon back into second and all over Lorenzo, forcing the Spaniard to go wide at the same corner.
Lorenzo's pace began to fade from that point onwards, yet Dovizioso managed to stick within a couple of tenths of Marquez and coasted past again when the reigning champion erred at Turn 3 on lap 18 of 28. The action, however, continued till the final corner of the race with the Italian taking the win.
Johann Zarco finished sixth on his Tech3 Yamaha followed by Valentino Rossi, who has struggled with flu heading into the weekend. Pedrosa eventually passed Lorenzo to take third place and finished comfortably in the space, but couldn't match up to the fight of the top two.
The 2015-spec Ducatis of Loris Baz (Avintia) and Aspar's Karel Abraham completed the top eight and will take part in Q2 as a result.
KTM wildcard Mika Kallio was a standout performer, beating Suzuki's Andrea Iannone to 10th and very almost passing Baz as well.
Pramac Ducati's Danilo Petrucci and Tech 3 Yamaha's Jonas Folger were also among the retirements, calling it a day in the pits, while Marc VDS Honda's Jack Miller crashed out at Turn 9.
