Marc Marquez put in a late push in the afternoon to top the post-race test on Monday, the Repsol Honda rider dipping under Cal Crutchlow’s pole record from 2013. Marquez deposed Jorge Lorenzo at the top of the timesheets, though Lorenzo closed down the Repsol Honda man’s advantage.

Rain fell late in the session, stopping activity for a while, and looked like preventing Valentino Rossi from going out on the 2015 version of the YZR-M1, but the sun burned off the rain and dried the track enough for testing to resume for the final hour.

    Jorge and team are coming to terms with the tyres now, which is good to see. I’m glad Bridgestone are quitting motoGP, whenever they change a tyre it screws some riders totally, and gives others massive advantages. This year it was Yamaha that got screwed, but in their last big change it was HRC with Casey and Dani. Tyre suppliers should not be able to hold top riders to ransom, better still, scrap the control tyre rule and let teams choose their own tyre that best suits their bike – instead of forcing teams through countless bike revisions to try and suit whatever rubbish Bridgestone decides to throw at them.
