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.
