Jerez MotoGP Test 1pm Times: Viñales Leads As Quartararo Heads To France

It has been a very busy time for the MotoGP grid, fresh off the back of the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday. The bikes were off and out on track from 10am this morning, running through a batch of parts and settings for the next part of the MotoGP season. Fabio Quartararo is absent, the Monster Energy Yamaha rider having headed to France to get a medical assessment of his arm, with a view to surgery for arm pump.

Maverick Viñales is currently fastest, after a brief red flag when a spill left oil and Aleix Espargaro on the track. Viñales is three tenths quicker than Suzuki's Alex Rins, and Miguel Oliveira on the KTM. Marc Marquez is out testing, but has so far only put in a few laps, taking it easy on his arm so as not to disrupt the healing process.

Fabio Quartararo 💬

"The operation for the compartment syndrome went very well. I am still feeling a little sleepy from the anaesthetic, but I am fine. The doctor told me that everything went as expected. The severe pain that I felt during the race in Jerez prevented me from fighting for the victory. I'm really looking forward to being home and start working on the arm this week so that I can be 100% fit in Le Mans. I am feeling very positive about my recovery. I’m mentally strong and can’t wait to get back onboard my M1 as soon as possible."
