He concluded the first day of MotoGP preseason and has done so with Stefan Bradl with the best time. Honda's test driver, which all points to the fact that he will have to replace Marc Márquez in the first races of the season, has stopped the clock at 1: 55.614 that places him with a lot of advantage over the rest.

Among the rookies the best has been Enea Bastianini, fourth, who also set the best time for a Ducati, even beating the official test rider, Michele Pirro, who was fifth. Let us remember that Bastianini will carry last year's motorcycle in 2021, but this is not a time for alarms. It was just a test.

The best Suzuki, Sylvain Guintoli, finished ninth, while KTM tester Dani Pedrosa finished with the eleventh fastest time, just ahead of Suzuki's second tester, Takuya Tsuda. Tomorrow the real action will begin with all the starting drivers on the track.
