2015 Sepang MotoGP FP4 Result: Pedrosa Fastest As Lorenzo Suffers Minor Crash

Dani Pedrosa was comfortably fastest in the final session of free practice for the MotoGP class, beating the rest of the field by nearly a third of a second. Marc Marquez took 2nd, the Hondas clearly working well at Sepang. Marquez and Rossi had yet another minor run in on track, Marquez finding himself behind Rossi, and Rossi getting upset and slowing up to force him to go past. They did not end up coasting for a quarter of a lap as they had in FP3, but there was clearly tension there.

Andrea Iannone set the 3rd fastest time, the Ducati man clearly revitalized by his result from Phillip Island, while Jorge Lorenzo ended the session in 4th, after suffering a small crash at the final corner halfway through the session, losing the front and sliding off into the gravel. Valentino Rossi finished the session in 5th, fractionally behind his Movistar Yamaha teammate.
