A private two-day MotoGP test began at Misano in Italy on Thursday morning.

All teams are present, alongside some factory test riders.

Suzuki rookie Mir is making his return from injury, while the range of technical developments are set to include an updated version of Yamaha's 2020 prototype, first seen at Brno earlier this month.

Michelin has brought the same tyres as for the upcoming San Marino MotoGP, plus a new medium rear and new medium front tyre.

Quartararo is riding for the first time since Sunday's big accident at Silverstone, while Dovizioso - taken down in the same incident - is yet to set a time.

Testing takes place from 9:30am to 6pm, with a lunch break from 1-2pm...
