Valencia MotoGP Test Wednesday 12:30 Times: Marquez Leads Lorenzo

The morning chill meant a late start for the MotoGP teams again. Jack Miller was the first to go out, but he was also the first to crash. Marc Marquez is fastest so far this morning, swapping between the 2017 and 2018 bikes, a quarter of a second ahead of Jorge Lorenzo. The Suzuki riders are also back on track, after missing out on the first day due to illness, Andrea Iannone setting the third fastest time at lunchtime.

I saw a photo of Vinales on an M1 sporting very wing-like aero, is it possible that Yamaha has got around Dorna's ban?

According to MGP tech director Danny Aldridge the design as is, would have to be changed for him to ok it's homologation. 

Even though it's still connected at the bottom, I believe the rake is too great and that Suzuki is probably at the limit of what he deems legal in that regard.
