Maverick Vinales

Maverick Vinales made a blistering start, posting several laps in the 1m 28s during the opening hour. That kept the Movistar Yamaha rider on top for the remainder of the day.

Vinales came within a fraction of beating his earlier time in the closing minutes of the test.

Dani Pedrosa didn't appear on track until 3pm due to a throat infection, while Aprilia and then Suzuki gave a public debut to their new 'winglet fairings'.
