Following's Sunday's San Marino MotoGP, riders and teams have returned to the Misano circuit for the third and final official in-season test of the 2021 season.

Overnight rain meant a slow start to the opening day and only seven riders set a lap time by the 1pm lunch break, but the track has been busy since the start of the afternoon session.

The two-day test is due to see all factories work not only on the final stages of this year's world championship, but carry out important development work for their 2022 machines.

Due to the special Covid technical freeze, which ends this year, most factories have been unable to change their engine design since the start of 2020.

2022 Tech3 KTM rookies Remy Gardner and Raul Fernandez are due to complete their first MotoGP laps on Wednesday.

Testing began at 9:30am and concludes at 6pm, with a lunch break from 1-2pm…
