It was a tight final practice session at the front but Fabio Quartararo proved to be once again the top performer, one tenth of a second faster than future teammate Maverick Vinales, but both riders showed a fierce pace in the low 1:33s. Pecco Bagnaia is taking every opportunity to prove his worth to Ducati and after leading much of the session, he was the Italian factory’s main representative in third position. Pol Espargaro carried the flag for KTM and had an outstanding performance on well worn tyres, joining the top four towards the end of that long run.
Alex Rins got faster and faster throughout the session, briefly challenging for top spot but eventually finishing fifth, four tenths off the lead and only eight thousandths of a second ahead of Franco Morbidelli. Valentino Rossi did not make much noise after a glowing FP3 session but made a late jump into eighth, similarly to Andrea Dovizioso, who spent much of the session outside of the top 15 before making some late progress into ninth. Styria victor Miguel Oliveira seemed to find some speed to round out the top ten in FP4, six tenths slower than Quartararo.
