The second day of the inaugural MotoGP test at Indonesia's new Mandalika circuit is underway.

After a muddy start on Friday, and some controversial 'compulsory' track cleaning, lap times had tumbled to a day one best of 1m 32.466s by Pol Espargaro.

That time was beaten within the opening hour of Saturday's action by Alex Rins, with Yamaha's world champion Fabio Quartararo and KTM's Brad Binder then edging ahead of the Suzuki rider as the top five broke into the 1m 31s by 11am.

Should rain stay away, some riders predict a 1m 29s will be possible by the close of testing on Sunday evening.

The three-day outing, which follows hot on the heels of a two-day Sepang test, marks the final chance for official MotoGP track time before next month's Qatar season-opener.

The Mandalika race, Indonesia's first grand prix since 1997, is then schedule for March 18-20.

Testing at Mandalika takes place from 9am to 5pm, followed by practice starts…
