2022 Buriram MotoGP FP4 Result: Zarco Leads The Ducati Show

The final practice session of the premier class was yet another opportunity for the Ducatis to show off, with Johann Zarco back at the helm, ahead of Motegi winner Jack Miller and the ever-impressive Marco Bezzecchi. Brad Binder was also in the mix, posting an identical time to Jorge Martin – the two completing the top five of the session, covered by two tenths of a second. Another half a tenth behind was the somewhat unexpected Yamaha battle, with Franco Morbidelli finishing just ahead of Fabio Quartararo, for the first time in quite a while. Alex Rins added a Suzuki to the top eighth, ahead of Enea Bastianini and Miguel Oliveira – the top 10 covered by less than four tenths of a second.

Another impressive performance in FP4 was that of Cal Crutchlow, Yamaha’s test rider still showing some good speed and pace from 11th position, while Marc Marquez rested for a good part of the session, before doing a solid run on used rubber and claiming 12th position. Pecco Bagnaia, Aleix Espargaro and Luca Marini rounded out the top 15, while Maverick Viñales continued to look particularly unimpressed down in 16th, eight tenths of a second off the lead.
