Qatar MotoGP, Losail - Free Practice (4) Results

Free practice (4) results from the 2014 Qatar MotoGP at Losail, round 1 of 18.
Qualifying 1, for those outside the top ten after third free practice - including Cal Crutchlow and Pol Espargaro - will now get underway.

The official Honda, Yamaha and Ducati teams did not attend the recent Qatar test and thus started this weekend at a disadvantage.

World champion Marc Marquez is riding his first MotoGP laps since fracturing his leg in February. Pol Espargaro is back on track despite breaking his collarbone at the Qatar test on March 9.

@Realist Yes I have but there is not much in it, problem is Lorenzo will probably be 3 places ahead of Rossi at the start tomorrow. @Mxx I'm hoping for the same but not looking great for Movistar boys certainly.
