Following Sunday's Czech Republic MotoGP, an official test was held at the Brno circuit on Monday.

Testing took place from 10am to 6pm, with some light rain shortly after 2pm and red flags during the final hour after a big accident for Mir at turn one.

The Spaniard was said to be conscious but initially placed on a stretcher, with his bike heavily damaged after vaulting the barriers.

Fellow rookie Quartararo was quickest for almost the entire day.

"Today was really productive for us and we tried many things including some elements for the coming weekend in Austria," said the Frenchman.

"We tried the new carbon forks and the bike felt a little bit lighter with them, we tried some new tyres from Michelin and we were able to use some electronics settings that the team has wanted to test.

"Now we need to think about what we’ve tested and have some discussions about the direction that we’ll take with the new parts.”

Among the technical developments on track was a 2020 prototype from Yamaha, while Sunday's race winner Marquez had three different Hondas to test. Michelin brought two new medium rear tyres, one of which had the 2020 construction.
