The second day at the second and final 2020 MotoGP pre-season test is underway at the Losail Circuit in Qatar.

Alex Rins and Joan MirMir formed a Suzuki one-two courtesy of flying laps at the end of day one of testing, which also saw Ducati's holeshot-based 'active' ride-height system caught on camera.

This year's testing action starts at 1pm and ends in darkness at 8pm over the three days, to fit with the new (earlier) MotoGP race start time of 6pm for the March 8 season-opener.
