Qatar 2 MotoGP Test Thursday 5pm Times: Morbidelli Leads As Testing Picks Up Again

The first two hours of the Qatar test were the usual desolate affair, as rider sat and waited until the track temperature dropped enough for it to make sense to go out. The only exception was Maverick Viñales, who once again spent the lost part of the day doing test starts, and working on clutch settings for the start, his weakest point.

The track got busier in the third hour, with Franco Morbidelli leading the way by 5pm, ahead of Aleix Espargaro and Fabio Quartararo, while Pol Espargaro sits in fourth, ahead of the factory Ducatis of Pecco Bagnaia and Jack Miller.
