Quartararo leads Viñales in FP4 crashfest

It proved an attritional session, with a variety of riders finding themselves in the gravel trap. Aleix Espargaro twice had to dust himself down after incidents at Turns 2 & 13. His Aprilia Racing Gresini teammate Lorenzo Savadori also had to pick himself up at Turn 9. Rins took a tumble at Turn 5, while Pol Espargaro had a carbon copy of Repsol Honda teammate Marc Marquez FP3 crash at Turn 7. Danilo Petrucci joined in on the fun late in the session also, with the Tech 3 rider another to fall victim to Turn 2.
