2015 Austin MotoGP FP4 Result: Marquez Makes Practice (Nearly) Perfect

Marc Marquez continued to make practice his playfield with the top time in FP4 as riders worked on race setup in anticipation of Sunday's race. Jorge Loranzo again seemed to find additional pace on his Yamaha and looked steadily quicker as the final free practice wore on. Andrea Dovizioso finally managed to find the dry-weather speed his Ducati seemed to intially lack at the COTA racetrack near Austin Texas.

Valentino Rossi managed fourth fastest but that still left him three-quarters of a second from the front. Andrea Iannone also found settings he liked in his factory Ducati and, like his teammate, found a decent dry pace. Cal Crutchlow continued his run as the dominant satellite bike with sixth.
