2017 Qatar MotoGP Friday 10pm Times: Dovizioso Leads Some Surprise Names

old_url: 

With an hour of the first day of the MotoGP test at Qatar to go, the Ducatis have taken over at the top of the timesheets. Andrea Dovizioso is already under Jorge Lorenzo's race lap record, set here last year, and is over a third of a second clear of the field. Maverick Viñales is currently second on the Movistar Yamaha, a quarter of a second ahead of Cal Crutchlow on the LCR Honda.

Behind Crutchlow, some surprise names appear. Fourth fastest at this point of the test is Karel Abraham, the Czech rider posting an impressive time on the Aspar Ducati GP15. Jorge Lorenzo is just four thousandths of a second slower than Abraham, and just ahead of the surprising Jonas Folger. The German was impressive at Phillip Island on the Monster Tech 3 Yamaha, and is impressive here.

Valentino Rossi sits in seventh spot, just ahead of Dani Pedrosa on the Repsol Honda, with Folger's Tech 3 teammate Johann Zarco in ninth. Andrea Iannone is the first Suzuki rider in tenth.

Marc Marquez is currently down the order in twelfth, but the Spaniard lost a little time after he crashed his Repsol Honda. Marquez was testing Honda's new aerodynamic package, different again to the Yamaha, Suzuki and Aprilia fairings, two large bulges tacked on to the nose of the RC213V, exactly where the winglets were last year. Ducati was expected to debut their aero package at Qatar, but so far, there has been no sign of it.

Times at 10pm local time:

Marcos Ramirez was sixth quickest, aheaad of Gabriel Rodrigo and Juanfran Guevara. Joan Mir was ninth, while John McPhee rounded out the top ten of the test.

2017 Qatar MotoGP Friday 7:30pm Times: Marquez Leads In Early Stages

old_url: 

While the Moto2 bikes were still circulating in Jerez, the MotoGP riders took to the track in Qatar, for the final preseason test of the year. With the test starting at 4pm local time, while the sun is still up and the track is still scorching, only the KTMs took to the track, with a lot of testing parts to get through. 

At 7:30pm, the track had seen plenty of action, with everyone having circulated (the only rider missing being Hector Barbera, still recovering from a broken collarbone). Marc Marquez was fast from the off, swapping places with Maverick Viñales before seizing control. Dani Pedrosa is currently second, nearly half a second off the pace of Marquez, while Jorge Lorenzo is back up to speed on the Ducati, helped by a track which he loves and which suits the bike. Big surprise is Aleix Espargaro in fourth, the Aprilia obviously working well. 

So far, there have been no signs of new fairings at either Ducati or Honda, both factories continue to run with their standard wingless bodywork. That is expected to change at some point during the weekend.

2017 Jerez IRTA Test Friday Moto2 Times: Marquez Leaves Jerez As Fastest Moto2 Man

old_url: 

Alex Marquez leaves the Moto2 test at Jerez in an upbeat frame of mind, having set the fastest time on the final day of testing, and a new best time around the Jerez circuit on a Moto2 machine. The Spaniard was the only man to crack the 1'41 barrier, going over a tenth faster than his Marc VDS teammate Franco Morbidelli. 

Miguel Oliveira showed the potential of the KTM Moto2 bike, ending the final day, and the test, as third fastest. Dominique Aegerter was fourth, just behind Oliveira and just ahead of Jorge Navarro. The top ten was incredibly tight, beyond the Marc VDS men. Just a fraction over two tenths of a second separated Miguel Oliveira in third from Tom Luthi in tenth.

The Moto2 teams now pack up and head to Qatar. There, they will be issued with their official Moto2 engines for the first time. Though most teams are running refurbished and retired Moto2 engines, there are constant rumors of teams using more powerful engines, and running lower tire pressures in pursuit of a fast time. Just how much truth there is in those rumors is questionable. At Qatar, there should be a level playing field, with tire pressure monitors and official engines curbing any excesses.

old_url: 

Alex Marquez has topped both sessions on Friday morning, the Marc VDS rider showing exceptional pace, even in hot conditions. In the morning, the Spaniard set the fastest ever lap around the track on a Moto2 bike, cracking the 1'41 barrier. Even in the heat of the afternoon, Marquez was close to the pole record set during last year's race. 

Marquez' teammate Franco Morbidelli is close behind, ending second in the first session, third in the second session, Takaaki Nakagami taking second during the lunchtime Moto2 session. Miguel Oliveira is a close third, fast in both cold and hot conditions.

The Moto2 class has one final session before wrapping up testing and heading to Qatar.
