Following Sunday's Catalunya MotoGP, riders returned to the Barcelona circuit for the second official test since the start of the season.

Marc Marquez set the fastest time of the test in the closing minutes, when Maverick Vinales - who led for most of the day - also improved.

The factory Ducati team, which won Sunday's race with Andrea Dovizioso, plus Aspar and Avintia were not present, while KTM's Bradley Smith was ruled out by his finger injury on Saturday.

Movistar Yamaha had a new frame to test, Repsol Honda said they were just focussing on set-up and tyres.

Alex Rins made his return to action for Suzuki after missing the last three rounds with a broken wrist.

Round eight of the world championship takes place at Assen from June 23-25...
