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

All teams are present, plus some factory test riders.

Fastest man Quartararo is riding for the first time since Sunday's big accident at Silverstone, while Dovizioso - who also suffered a concussion in the same incident - is yet to start testing.

Oliveira called a halt after two laps 'in order to recover 100% for the upcoming Misano race' after being taken down by Zarco at Silverstone.

Suzuki rookie Mir is making his return from injury, while the range of technical developments are expected 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.

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