Poor weather hits start of day two

Poor weather at Jerez has delayed the start of MotoGP track activity, during Saturday's second day of the final pre-season test.

Strong winds and rain meant only Ivan Silva (Avintia) and Ducati test rider Franco Battaini recorded a lap time in the opening hour (10-11am).

Testing is due to conclude at 6pm.

UPDATE: Dani Pedrosa completed ten wet laps shortly before 2pm.

The Ducati boys don't need this rain, they need all the track time they can get if they hope to resolve the issues that are haunting them. My fear is that if things don't turn around soon for Ducati, they will get fed up with the whole MotoGP venture and pull the plug at first opertunity. We don't want to lose another factory team but to date, all the money that they have sunk into MotoGP racing recently is buying them nothing but bad publicity
