Cal Crutchlow blitzes field in FP4 in Qatar

Cal Crutchlow is in a state of grace.
The Yamaha Tech3 rider dominated the new half hour FP4 session with a blistering lap of 1:55.
655 and was the first rider to break the 1.
56 barrier this weekend and he was followed by Marc Marquez who also joined him under the 1.

56s but he did it on hard tires and finally didn’t run off track.

Jorge Lorenzo took the third spot on the timesheets and while he was +0.
485s adrift, but it looks that his race has improved by at least two tenths of a second from yesterday.

Valentino Rossi was fourth followed by LCR Honda’s Stefan Bradl, an excellent Andrea Dovizioso who was a little more than seven tenths from Crutchlow.
Dani Pedrosa seems to have solved his corner entry problems even if he was only 7th, but his best lap time was done on very used soft tires (more than the race distance).
Nicky Hayden was 8th followed by who Ben Spies suffered a crash when his Ducati folded as he was outside the racing line.
He’ll have to start the Q1 with a bruised and battered left shoulder.

Alvaro Bautista closed out the top ten.
Yonny Hernandez was another rider who also suffered a crash.
