Catalunya MotoGP test times - Monday (4pm)

Lap times as of 4pm during Monday's post-race MotoGP test at Catalunya.
Following Sunday's Catalunya MotoGP, the second official in-season test of 2014 is being held at the same circuit on Monday.

Suzuki, returning to MotoGP in 2015, is present, while Moto2 rider Dominique Aegerter is making his MotoGP debut with Avintia.

Testing takes place between 10am and 6pm, but the day began with a half hour trial of a revised circuit layout, using the tighter F1 corner at the end of the back straight as a possible safety change.

Marquez lapped a full second faster than his fastest race lap, and almost on his qualifying time. Meanwhile, Dani is back around a second off his Q2 time. Obviously their primarly interest is to get test data, rather than post lap times to impress rusted on fans like me that should get on with their day's tasks, but it is normally achieved by getting as close to the limit as possible...
