There is a lot of activity out on track at Valencia, with nineteen riders having lapped since 10am this morning. After four hours of testing, Marc Marquez has the top time, having posted a blistering lap early in the day. Marquez sits ahead of Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa, with the two satellite Hondas of Alvaro Bautista and Stefan Bradl just over half a second off the time of Marquez.
Valentino Rossi leads a brace of Yamahas, a cecond behind Marquez and a tenth of a second ahead of Bradley Smith, while Andrea Iannone is once again top Ducati.
Nicky Hayden has made his debut on the Honda production racer, but has as yet only turned 19 laps on the bike, where the others have already done at least twice that. The Forward Yamaha has also made its debut, Aleix Espargaro turning some laps on the FTR-built Yamaha-powered machine. The bike looks very different to the factory Yamaha, despite the chassis, swingarm and engine coming from the factory bike.
