2019 Qatar Moto2 Test Day 1 Final Times: Binder Cracks Two Minute Barrier

Brad Binder has finished the first day of the Qatar Moto2 test on top of the timesheets, putting in a blistering lap at the very end of the final session to break through the two minute barrier and into the 1'59s. The Red Bull KTM rider's lap put him four tenths clear of Sam Lowes in second, on the Gresini Kalex, who was in turn just a fraction quicker than Iker Lecuona on the American Racing KTM.

Jorge Navarro could not improve his time in the final session, but the Speed Up rider's best lap from the second session put him in fourth overall. Alex Marquez ended the day in fifth on the Marc VDS Kalex, just ahead of Tom Luthi and Xavi Vierge, while Augusto Fernandez, riding for Pons HP40, was eighth quickest. Luca Marini and Marcel Schrotter rounded out the top ten.

Below are the combined times from all three sessions, followed by the times set in the last session of the day.
