2018 Qatar MotoGP Test Saturday 6pm Times: Zarco Fastest As Riders Start To Chase A Lap

Johann Zarco leads the MotoGP test in Qatar, beating Cal Crutchlow's quickest time from earlier in the day. The Monster Tech3 Yamaha rider put in three sub-1'55 laps in a row, including the one which beat Crutchlow. 

The LCR Honda rider is still second, with Danilo Petrucci third, but the timesheets are starting to change rapidly as riders try for a fast lap before 7pm. At this stage, multiple riders are chasing their best lap time, before attempting a long run or race simulation after 7pm, which is race time at Qatar.

Andrea Iannone has not set a lap time, the Italian having been reported sick by Suzuki.
