2016 Qatar MotoGP Thursday Test Times at 10pm: Viñales Still Fastest as Ducatis Dominate

As the second day of testing at Qatar starts to wind down, Maverick Viñales remains fastest, leading Andrea Iannone by just under a tenth of a second. Jorge Lorenzo is in third, a pleasingly symmetric 0.099 seconds behind Viñales, and ahead of another gaggle of Ducatis, with Scott Redding ahead of Hector Barbera and Andrea Dovizioso, making it a clean sweep of Ducati flavors represented in the top five. Dani Pedrosa has jumped up the timesheets to be the first Honda rider in seventh, sitting just ahead of Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez.

interesting, the difference between Hector Barbera and Redding on two pretty different machines.

I can see a helluva lot more Red Bull branding appearing on that Suzuki before very long at all. Maverick is likely to be the only rider they have amongst a sea of green M's at the front if the 3 tests are much to go on.
