MotoGP pre-season testing ends with Vinales fastest from impressive rookie Quartararo, forming a Yamaha one-two on a windy night in Qatar.

Petrucci, Rins, Marquez, Dovizioso and rookie Mir joined Vinales in leading the Monday timesheets while Marquez, Lorenzo, Miller, Rabat, Rins, Bagnaia and Oliveira were among those on tonight's lengthy fallers' list.

Testing took place from 4pm to 10pm. The season-opening night race will be held at the same Losail circuit on the evening of March 10.
