Jerez MotoGP test times - Monday (Final)

25 March 2013

The third day of the final official 2013 pre-season MotoGP test took place at Jerez in Spain on Monday.

As on previous days, the track was wet for the 10am start. Dani Pedrosa didn't wait to see if conditions would improve and left the circuit this morning.

The track eventually began to dry around 4pm, prompting slick tyres and tumbling lap times during the final hours of testing.

Tech 3 Yamaha's Cal Crutchlow set the fastest lap of the day - and test - in the closing minutes, despite damp patches on the track.

As well as Pedrosa, Alvaro Bautista (who fractured fingers on day two) and Ben Spies did not record a Monday lap time.

The opening round of the 2013 season takes place at Losail, Qatar from April 4-7.
