The opening day of the second 2016 MotoGP test is underway at Phillip Island in Australia.

The test got off to a wet start, with birthday boy Marc Marquez taking over at the top from Cal Crutchlow when the weather improved shortly before 2pm, only for the showers to return.

Later in the afternoon a small window of dry track time saw a flurry of activity, with Pramac Ducati team-mates Danilo Petrucci and Scott Redding leading the way on slicks... Then more rain.

New Marc VDS signing Jack Miller is back on track, having missed the Sepang test while recovering from a broken leg in a motocross training accident. Aprilia are not present, having instead elected to debut the new RS-GP at a private test in Qatar.

Testing takes place between 10am and 5:45pm...
