Malaysian MotoGP, Sepang - Free Practice (4)

Free practice times (4) from the Malaysian MotoGP at Sepang, round 15 of 18.
Dry track after earlier rain.

Stefan Bradl fell with five minutes to go and was seen examining his right ankle before being carried away on a stretcher.

The Honda LCR rider lost the front at turn one, with his foot appearing to get caught as he slid off the track.

Marc Marquez led his first session of the weekend so far, ending team-mate Dani Pedrosa's unbeaten run.

Qualifying 1, for those outside the top ten after third free practice, will now get underway.

Yonny Hernandez continues to replace Ben Spies at Pramac Ducati, with Damian Cudlin taking over from Hernandez at PBM and World Supersport-ace Scassa replacing the injured Karel Abraham at Cardion AB..

Michael Laverty has taken over the ART of ex-team-mate Hernandez, with Cudlin on the PBM bike.

I really hope Bradl is OK, it was a very unfortunate and nasty looking ankle twist, it looks like it was broken. That also goes to show how incredibly lucky Marquez has been this year with al his crashes.
