Qatar 2 MotoGP Test Thursday Final Times: Yamahas Lead The Way On Penultimate Day

Yamaha have taken a clean sweep of the top three times on the second day of the MotoGP test at Qatar. Maverick Viñales topped the timesheets with a lap of 1'53.244, still six hundredths of a second off the best time from yesterday set by Jack Miller. Franco Morbidelli took second spot on the 2019-spec Petronas Yamaha, while Fabio Quartararo was third quickest.

Pecco Bagnaia was the first non-Yamaha, the Ducati rider two tenths slower than Viñales, and another two tenths quicker than Aleix Espargaro. The two Suzukis took sixth and seventh spot, six tenths behind Viñales, while Valentino Rossi crossed the line in eighth, three quarters of a second behind his former teammate. Johann Zarco was the second Ducati home in ninth, while Pol Espargaro was the quickest Honda, and the last rider within a second of Viñales.

Testing concludes tomorrow.
