2017 Qatar Moto2 Test Sunday FP7 & FP8 Times: Morbidelli Leads Again

While the high winds which have battered the Losail International Circuit on Sunday have badly hampered the Moto3 class, the larger, heavier Moto2 bikes have had less trouble with the wind. After the first two sessions of the last day of the test, Franco Morbidelli is once again the fastest man in the Moto2 class. The Marc VDS rider was quickest in the second session, nearly three tenths quicker than Miguel Oliveira had been on the KTM in the first session of the day.

Tom Luthi is third quickest overall so far, ahead of Xavier Simeon on the Tasca Racing Kalex. Pecco Bagnaia set the fifth quickest time, ahead of Hafizh Syahrin, who was faster in the first session.

With rain now falling at the track, any further action looks unlikely. The teams will have to go back to their hotels and see what can be learned ahead of the opening of the 2017 MotoGP season on Thursday.
