125: Simon holds control at Jerez.

Having been fastest by a huge seven tenths after the first day of 125GP testing at Jerez, Julian Simon remained on top during day two - but with nearest rivals in close pursuit.

The Banjaca Aspar rider failed to beat his pace setting Wednesday time during day two, lapping a tenth of a second short, helping nearest rival Andrea Iannone to close to within 0.065sec of the Spaniard.

Repsol KTM's Marc Marquez also upped his pace, circulating 0.075sec behind Iannone for third position with Britain's Bradley Smith completing the top four.

Testing concludes on Friday.
