Who has the best race pace based on FP4 timesheets?

Some would say so, because it gives arguably the strongest indication as to who has the best race rhythm. The Italian only did a seven-lap run in the 30-minute session, but set four consecutive laps between 1:32.005 and 1:32.258. His last lap on a 27-lap old front medium tyre – the race distance – and a 17-lap old rear medium was a 1:32.417, with his worst flying lap across the whole session was a 1:32.658. Viñales completed 15 proper flying laps in just the one run in FP4, on a new front hard and rear medium set of Michelins. His best was a 1:32.124, 10 flying laps into the run, his worst a 1:32.956. That was set on his second flying lap though, after Viñales’ worst was a 1:32.797 on his final lap.
