Dovizioso neck pain, Hayden fourth

Ducati Test Team rider Michele Pirro enjoyed a promising opening day aboard the Desmosedici GP13 laboratory bike. Taking part in his third race in a row, the wild-card was second in the morning session and ran third midway through the afternoon, before being pushed down to tenth.

“It was a pretty positive day,” said the Italian. “We were very competitive on the rain tyres this morning, when I was second.

"In the dry this afternoon, I did almost the entire session in the top six. When we put on new tyres, I had a bit of trouble with the front brakes and wasn't able to do the time I was capable of in order to be a bit further up.

"Anyway, we're gathering data and tomorrow we hope to improve the pace and make another step forward. We're ready for any condition, so we'll see what happens.”
