The final day of a private two-day MotoGP test is underway at Misano in Italy.

All teams are present, plus some factory test riders, although Miguel Oliveira, Jorge Lorenzo and Karel Abraham will sit out day two as they recover from recent injuries. Johann Zarco is also set to miss the final day.

Rookie Quartararo beat his own pace-setting day one time early on Friday morning, with Bagnaia and Miller moving ahead of the Frenchman by midday.

Among the technical developments on track is an updated version of Yamaha's 2020 prototype, first seen at Brno earlier this month, plus the factory's first carbon fibre swingarm.

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.
