The Red Bull Ring officially became the fastest circuit on the current MotoGP calendar on Friday afternoon.

Despite a modification to the final corner, Ducati's Andrea Dovizioso set an average speed of 185.9km/h (115.6mph) around the 4.318km circuit.

That beats the 182.1km/h (113.2mph) pole record at Australia's Phillip Island track.

Dovizioso's team-mate Andrea Iannone set an unofficial average speed of 187.1km/h (116.3mph) at the recent test, before the change to Turn 10 and redesigned Michelin rear tyres.
