Andrea Dovizioso was the fastest rider of the first
day of the test the MotoGP in Qatar
. The Italian rider, who has completed a
total of 36 laps, set a best time of 1:54.819, chrono that has
served to overcome by three-tenths to Maverick Viñales. Third party for your party
has crept Cal Crutchlow as the first satellite rider. Jorge Lorenzo has been
fifth with a good feeling on the Ducati GP17, while Marc Marquez
it has been away of the times of reference after suffering two falls

throughout the day.

Losail is historically a circuit that is conducive to Ducati and
it has been noticed during the first day of the test. However, Dovizioso has
scored the best time, Karel Abraham has been cast room with the mount
Italian Aspar Team and Jorge Lorenzo has been fifth. Only Viñales and Cal Crutchlow
have been to the height. All in all, Jonas Folger and Johann Zarco have returned to
leave samples of their great adaptation to the Yamaha M1. Both have escorted
Valentino Rossi, again more focused on the technical tests in search for a
quick time, although the time of the pre-season runs out.

Pedrosa and Marquez have also had a day of much
work
, although with the end somewhat different. While Dani Pedrosa has
finished eighth at 0.873 head after 38 spins, Marc Marquez has
had two falls
. The current champion was not showing particularly concerned
by not having done a fast lap, and yes one of its two falls. Not
however, since Honda believe that one of the accidents has been able to be
caused by the new fairing with fins built-in to the brand I wanted to try with the end of both before the start of the season.

While Aprilia has worked on different solutions
techniques and Suzuki in the electronics of the GSX-RR, in KTM the day has been
full of shadows
. The signature austrian has resorted to the services of Mika
Kallio to test the new configuration of the engine, the RC16 per game
triple. All in all, the pilots of the signing of the austrian have not gotten out of
the lower part of the table of times in a day in addition to Pol
Espargaró has had a small crash without consequences
. Neither has it been a
easy journey for Tito Rabat in the return to activity after injury.
