2017 Qatar Moto2 Saturday Test Times: Nakagami Edges Morbidelli

Takaaki Nakagami has taken back control of the Moto2 class, topping the final session of the day for the Moto2 class to end the second day of testing as fastest. The Honda Team Asia rider held off the Marc VDS riders, both of whom had previously monopolized the top of the timesheets. Franco Morbidelli set the second fastest time of the day, just five hundredths of a second slower than Nakagami, while Alex Marquez was nearly a quarter of a second off the pace of the Japanese rider.

Hafizh Syahrin was impressive, taking fourth spot at the end of the day on the Petronas Kalex, just ahead of Miguel Oliveira on the KTM. Tom Luthi ended the day as sixth fastest, while rookie Fabio Quartararo continues his very strong run in testing to finish in seventh. Xavi Vierge put the Tech 3 bike into eighth, ahead of Danny Kent, who was the first of the Suter bikes. Axel Pons rounded out the top ten.

Testing continues on Sunday, weather permitting.
