2015 Phillip Island MotoGP FP4 Result: Marquez Makes It A Practice Clean Sweep

Marc Marquez extended his practice dominance with a 1'29.245 lap that put him more than half a second clear of Jorge Lorenzo. Lorenzo continued his run as the second-fastest rider at the Phillip Island circuit this year with Andrea Iannone right on his heels. Generally, FP4 is more about race pace  and setup than raw qualifying speed but no one apparently told that to Marquez, the current world champion. Marquez's final five laps of the session all dipped into the 1'29s, making him the only rider to do that during FP4.

Alex Rins Improved his time by half a second to grab to the top spot for the second practice in a row Saturday at the Phillip Island circuit in Australia. Rins FP3 time of 1'32.883 put him two-tenths clear of Sam Lowes who finished second in both FP2 and FP3. (Lowes did top the timesheet in FP1).

Thomas Luthi improved his previous best by a tenth of a second to take third. Jonas Folger and new champion Johann Zarco rounded out the top five in the final practice before qualifying. Rins' fastest lap remained four-tenths slower than Tito Rabat's pole position time from 2014. Rabat, who participated in FP1 and FP2, withdrew from the race after crashing uninjured. The 2014 world champion still is healing from a broken arm he suffered before the Motegi race.

What more, Marquez's pracrice laps were consistently fast as he dropped into the low 1'30s and 1'29s regularly in the session. 

Scott Redding came in a surprisingly fourth-fastest in the session just in front of Suzuki rookie Maverick Vinales who has been quick all weekend. Andrea Iannone finished the session six-hundredths in front of countyman and championship points leader Valentino Rossi. The top 11 riders finished within a second of each other.
