Miguel Oliveira leads final practice for the Valencia MotoGP season finale, ahead of title contender Fabio Quartararo.

Outgoing KTM rider Oliveira was 0.234s quicker than Quartararo, whose title rival and world championship leader Francesco Bagnaia was eleventh.

Pol Espargaro was a surprise fourth, with Repsol Honda team-mate Marc Marquez down in 15th but within 0.669s of Oliveira.

Raul Fernandez was absent after being sent for further medical checks in hospital after a fall in FP3.

Fellow rookies Darryn Binder and Remy Gardner walked away from separate accidents in FP4.

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

Can Fabio Quartararo win the Valencia title showdown? | MotoGP 2022

MotoGP has its first title showdown since 2017 at Valencia this weekend, with Francesco Bagnaia 23-points clear of reigning champion Fabio Quartararo.

Bagnaia will be crowned Ducati’s first MotoGP champion since Casey Stoner in 2007, and Italy’s first since mentor Valentino Rossi in 2009, unless Quartararo wins the Valencia race and Bagnaia then fails to finish in the top 14.

The fight for third is much hotter contest with Aleix Espargaro and Enea Bastianini separated by just one point and Jack Miller also in mathematical contention (-23 points).

Aprilia holds a 5-point advantage over Yamaha for second place behind Ducati in the constructors’ standings, with Aprilia 28-points clear of Red Bull KTM for runner-up in the teams’ championship.

Valencia will be the final race for Suzuki, world champions with Joan Mir in 2020, which is leaving MotoGP.

Rookies Remy Gardner and Darryn Binder will be making their last MotoGP appearances before switching to WorldSBK and Moto2 respectively next season, when Cal Crutchlow will revert to Yamaha testing duties and RNF joins forces with Aprilia.

An official post-race test will be held at Valencia on Tuesday, when nine riders (including rookie Augusto Fernandez) will make their debut with new teams for 2023.
