MotoGP lap times from the second night at the Qatar test, held at Losail.

After Sunday's rain interruption, track conditions improved on Monday, although it was still cold and dusty. The main news was that Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa suffered hand and leg injuries during an accident.

The test marks the return of Kawasaki, running Marco Melandri in its new 'unofficial' format under the name of 'Hayate Racing Team', while Guinea Ecuatorial Team's Sete Gibernau is absent due to a shoulder injury.

Testing concludes on Tuesday night. The opening round of the 2009 MotoGP World Championship will also take place at Qatar, on the evening of April 12.
