2019 Qatar MotoGP Test Monday 6pm Times: Petrucci Leads Rins As Final Day Gets Underway

A slow start to the final day of testing at Qatar, as the riders once again bided their time, waiting for the sun to start setting and the track temperature start to drop. At 6pm local time, it was Danilo Petrucci leading the way, with a lap of 1'55.842, nearly a second slower than his best time from Sunday. Behind the factory Ducati, the inseparable pair of Alex Rins and Maverick Viñales took second and third, the Suzuki rider a couple of tenths quicker than the Yamaha man. 

Pol Espargaro is currently third on the KTM, just ahead of the second factory Ducati of Andrea Dovizioso, and the Petronas Yamaha of Franco Morbidelli. Two Hondas sit behind Morbidelli, Marc Marquez a fraction faster than Cal Crutchlow.

With the sun now set, testing will get serious, with a number of riders due to try a race simulation on this last day. The test finishes in four hours time, at 10pm local.
