Quickest throughout the Sepang test, Quartararo returned to the top of the timesheets during day two of the final MotoGP pre-season test, in Qatar.

Testing began at 1pm and ended in darkness at 8pm.

Reigning champion Marquez escaped injury in a fall at Turn 9, just after 5pm. The Spaniard also appeared to have a 'holeshot device' switch fitted to his Repsol Honda today:

Meanwhile, Miller confirmed he has been using the latest version of the Ducati holeshot device (with switches on the handlebar) to lower the rear of his bike on the exit of corners since Buriram last year!

Testing concludes on Monday night, with the season-opening race being held at the same circuit, at 6pm, on March 8.
