Nakagami is back on top for LCR Honda during final practice for the Andalucia MotoGP at Jerez.

Reigning MotoGP champion Marquez, who broke his right arm in last Sunday's race, has returned to action on Saturday, just four days after surgery to plate the fracture. The Honda rider, 19th this morning, was 16th (+0.999s) in FP4.

Fellow injured riders Crutchlow (wrist fracture) and Rins (dislocated shoulder) made their comebacks on Friday, although Rins sat out FP3 this morning.

Qualifying 1 - for those outside the top ten after third free practice, including Morbidelli, Dovizioso and the Marquez brothers - will now get underway.
