Aprilia’s Aleix Espargaro continued his reign at the top of the timesheets during final practice for the Catalunya MotoGP at Barcelona, ​​with the top four covered by 0.244s

The full range of rear tires were in use for race preparation during the hot and slippery FP4.

Most began on the hard rear before also trying the medium. But Espargaro was among a handful of riders to stick with the medium throughout, while team-mate Maverick Vinales (then later Alex Marquez and briefly Darryn Binder) surprised by running the soft.

Brad Binder fell for the second time today, with Alex Marquez left winded by a very fast spill through the final right-handers.

Qualifying 1, for those outside the top ten after third free practice, including Vinales, Enea Bastianini and Joan Mir, will now get underway.

Marc Marquez is absent after electing to undergo a fourth operation on his right arm. The eight-time world champion is being replaced by HRC test rider Stefan Bradl.

According to Marquez’s team-mate Pol Espargaro, the new chassis and swingarm Marquez had been trying has now been handed to LCR’s Takaaki Nakagami.

Reigning world champion Fabio Quartararo returns to the scene of his 2021 ‘wardrobe malfunction’ with a new two-year Yamaha contract in his pocket and leading the MotoGP standings by eight points over Aprilia’s Aleix Espargaro.

Enea Bastianini has slipped 28 points from the top after falling in Italy, with last Sunday’s home winner Francesco Bagnaia up to fourth but still 41 points behind Quartararo.

An official post-race test will be held at the Barcelona circuit on Monday.

Jorge Martin will miss the test and undergo surgery to treat nerve problems in his right hand.
