Following Sunday's season-ending Valencia MotoGP, riders and teams have returned to the circuit for the start of 2019 testing.

The test marks the debut of Lorenzo at Repsol Honda, Zarco at KTM, Iannone at Aprilia, Petrucci at the factory Ducati team, Abraham at Reale Avintia and Morbidelli at the new Petronas Sepang Yamaha team.

The four 2019 rookies - Bagnaia (Pramac Ducati), Oliveira (Tech3), Mir (Suzuki) and Quartararo (Sepang Yamaha) - are also on track while Tito Rabat makes his return from leg fractures at Silverstone and Tech3 starts its new KTM era.

Bradley Smith makes his debut as an Aprilia test rider, while Jonas Folger returns to MotoGP as Yamaha's new test rider.

Testing began at 10am and concludes at 5pm, but a damp track once again kept riders in the pits until midday.
