Jorge Lorenzo marked the fastest time in Friday's MotoGP free practice ahead of the Japanese Grand Prix Sunday.Championship leader Valentino Rossi, who is only 14 points ahead of Lorenzo, came in eighth, riding 0.823 slower than his Yamaha teammate.With four more races at play, including the Japan Grand Prix Sunday, the championship can go to either of the Yamaha riders, while injured reigning champion Marc Marquez trails them at a distant third and says he has largely given up hope of defending his title.Lorenzo said he was surprised by his stellar showing, given a shoulder injury sustained during a recent practice before coming to Japan.Off the bike, however, Lorenzo was seen touching his shoulder several times between practice laps.Struggling Marquez was seventh in the time sheet, recording 0.761 slower than Lorenzo, but ahead of Rossi.
