2016 Sepang MotoGP FP4 Result: Marquez Holds Serve

Marc Marquez put in a fast final lap to crowd out Cal Crutchlow from the top spot in a wet FP4 at the Sepang Circuit Saturday. Cal Crutchlow, who led much of the session on the damp-but-grippy track, finished second, seven-hundredths back. Maverick Vinales took third as riders worked on wet race settings for the Sunday race. 

Jorge Lorenzo, who looked more comfortable in damp conditions than he has in weeks, was fourth-fastest, just pushing Andrea Dovizioso into fifth. Jack Miller, winner in the rain in Assen this year, was sixth fastest with Loris Baz (7tth) right on his heels. Valentino Rossi, who was second early in practice, didn't improve much on his time to settle into eighth. Alvaro Bautista (9th) and Aleix Espargaro rounded out the top ten.
