The dry patches that created uncertainty for the lightweight class vanished by the time the MotoGP riders found their way back onto the track for their final practice session. Constant drizzle soaked the track for big part of the session to create consistent conditions to do some race pace work. The track did start to dry once again but plentiful of spray was still getting kicked up.
Marc Marquez planted his flag at the top of the pile on his first laps by over half a second and then decided to push a little more on his second run, this time on a medium front. The world champion built up on that advantage to increase the gap to one and a half seconds and post the fastest time of the weekend.
A much happier Dani Pedrosa joined the slightly warmer somewhat drier track to become his teammate's closest pursuer, while Jorge Lorenzo also accepted the challenge but even with the best of will, the Spaniard only recovered a couple of tenths on the Honda duo.
Danilo Petrucci in fourth place was already over two seconds down on Marquez, the Italian narrowly sneaking ahead of Andrea Dovizioso, who did not improve on his early lap time. Johann Zarco also had to rely on an early lap for his sixth place after the Tech 3 man joined the list of blue-clad crashers in the session.
Valentino Rossi also featured on that list, the Italian sightseeing on the escape roads while attemptiong to restart his M1 following a crash in turn eight. The Italian rejoined the action on his second bike and finished the session seventh, ahead of his struggling teammate Maverick Viñales, the factory duo two and a half seconds slower than the world championship leader.
The top ten was completed by Tito Rabat and an equally impressive Sam Lowes, as the final two men within three seconds of Marquez.
