While Monster Yamaha riders Maverick Vinales and Fabio Quartararo haven't set a lap time today, they have both been out to try more practice starts. Both explained in their earlier debrief that they are working on perfecting the clutch rather than the holeshot device.

LCR Honda's Takaaki Nakagami is the fourth rider out on track today. It's no surprise that those braking the conditions are riders that feel they have plenty still to do.

Petrucci is now down into the 1m 58s, so conditions are getting better.

Petrucci now moves to the top of the timesheets with a 2m 0.012s, so still over 6sec off the best lap of the test. Bradl, who felt dizzy after a fall yesterday, is now second with Honda 'team-mate' Pol Espargaro third from his earlier brief appearance.

Approaching the end of the third hour and the windy, dusty conditions mean Petrucci remains the only rider to have set a lap time today.
