Sky VR46's Francesco Bagnaia leads day one of official Moto2 testing at Jerez.

Moto2 is certinly the most competitive racing class, and given how tough it has been for A. Marquez, D Kent etc, it looks like jack Miller's move might've been the best one after all, even though I thought he was biting off rather alot initially.

I hope it works out for him on the Ducati. Those tough years on a second-rate Honda might be about to pay off.

There's massive pressure in the Moto2 class, but whether there are any seats in MotoGP next year is questionable. There were alot of 'promotions' this time around, and I think it unlikely that we'll see so many the following year.
