Following Sunday's season-ending Valencia Grand Prix, a MotoGP test session began at the circuit on Tuesday.

A wet track prevented any action for the first two hours of testing, but conditions improved and Valentino Rossi was able to make his Ducati debut (on slick tyres) at 12:20 local time.

All others, except world champion Jorge Lorenzo and Ducati's Nicky Hayden, have now been on track.

That means 2007 world champion Casey Stoner has made his factory Honda debut, while rookies Cal Crutchlow and Karel Abraham have also been out.
