2018 Jerez November MotoGP Test 1:30pm Wednesday Times: Petrucci Fastest As Testing Begins

Testing is underway at the final MotoGP test of 2018, bikes out on track at Jerez. Cold track temperatures kept the bikes in the garage for the first two hours, but the noise started at around 11:30, and the track has been busy since then.

Danilo Petrucci is currently fastest on the factory Ducati, ahead of his teammate Andrea Dovizioso. Repsol Honda rider Marc Marquez is out on a bike in Repsol livery, a black test bike waiting in the pits. Marquez is currently third fastest, just ahead of Maverick Viñales. Jorge Lorenzo is tenth at the moment, but Honda have brought a modified tank with extra support, similar to the one used at Ducati.

the session was briefly red-flagged when Joan Mir crashed at Turn 7, destroying the air fence. Mir is currently being checked out at the medical center, but he is not believed to be seriously injured.
