Track action at Qatar has been not so much limited as verging on nonexistent on Friday. Strong winds combined with a sandstorm made for a very dirty track and difficult and dangerous riding conditions, meaning almost everyone has stayed in the safety of their pit boxes. Five riders - Pol Espargaro, Danilo Petrucci, Brad Binder, Michele Pirro and Takuya Tsuda have posted a grand combined total of 15 laps including in and out laps, with Espargaro and Petrucci doing a combined 3 total laps between them. The fastest time is 8 seconds off the lap record. A wasted day.
The teams also have very little left to test, having gotten through the bulk of their program in the preceding four days of testing. Most are now packing up and getting ready to leave, to head home briefly before returning for the first round of 2021 in two weeks time.
