2019 Jerez MotoGP FP4 Result: Marquez Back On Top

One final practice prancing for the premier class before things get fast and furious for qualifying and durable hard rubber was out in force. Marc Marquez took it on a couple of runs and got it to post a set of high 1:37s and low 1:38s on his way to top position. Perhaps surprisingly given practice results, his main challenger on the timesheets was Maverick Viñales, the Yamaha man swapping roles with his teammate and taking his turn at the business end of proceedings, only one hundredth of a second slower than the reigning world champion.

Cal Crutchlow made a late move up the timesheets to join the top three, while Fabio Quartararo was taking his role as lead Frenchman very seriously, impressing once again in fourth position and consistently at the top end throughout the session. Andrea Dovizioso rode his top Ducati to fifth position, about four tenths slower than Marquez and looking decent on race pace too. Takaaki Nakagami and Pecco Baganaia were a welcome sight in sixth and seventh positions, ahead of the likes of FP3 record breaker Danilo Petrucci. Franco Morbidelli and Alex Rins completed the top ten, while Valentino Rossi warmed up for Q1 with a 13th place.
