Qatar 2 MotoGP Test Thursday 7pm Times: Aleix Espargaro Leads, Rookies Impress

Aleix Espargaro has taken over at the top of the timesheets at the 7pm mark on the second day of the Qatar test, the Aprilia rider the first to drop into the 1'53s on Thursday. Ducati Lenovo rider Pecco Bagnaia currently sits in second, while Pol Espargaro is currently third fastest on the Repsol Honda. Suzuki's Alex Rins is fourth fastest, leading the two factory Yamahas of Maverick Viñales and Fabio Quartararo.

The MotoGP rookies are starting to make their mark, Jorge Martin just nipping ahead of Enea Bastianini, both riders having set their best times of the test in the mid 1'54s.

The session was red-flagged briefly after Alex Marquez crashed (though he was unhurt) and the track needed cleaning. Action has resumed already.
