Cal Crutchlow (injured) was the only 2019 race rider not present, while Bradley Smith (Aprilia), Sylvain Guintoli (Suzuki) and Alvaro Bautista (Ducati) were on track as test riders.

Smith was sharing Espargaro's bike on Thursday, with the Spaniard missing day one due to sickness.

Testing took place from 10am to 6pm, with Nakagami setting the fastest lap of the week just before 5pm.
