Heavy rain falling since this morning has made for a very wet track at Valencia. Though the track opened at 10am for the second full day of testing, it remained silent for the first two hours, riders only venturing out shortly after noon. By 2pm, nine men had put in laps, though lap times were a very long way off being fast. Yonny Hernandez led the way, ahead of his new Pramac Ducati teammate Danilo Petrucci, while Scott Redding was third.
The riders who are out are focusing more on getting to understand the bikes in the wet, rather than chasing lap times. The weather is starting to lift, but it is still cold, and the track will take a long time to dry. There are several riders who are unlikely to go out at all in the wet.
