It was a busy day of testing at Jerez after Sunday's race, all six manufacturers having new parts to try. Conditions were far from ideal - it was much colder than Sunday, and there was a lot more wind, making it tricky to chase a fast lap time. Johann Zarco ended the test as fastest, ahead of Brad Binder and Fabio Quartararo, while Jack Miller was fourth quickest.
Pol Espargaro and Franco Morbidelli spent the most time on track, racking up 85 and 83 laps respectively, with Alex Marquez not far behind with 80 laps. At Honda, there was a new frame and Pol Espargaro was testing the exhausts used by Stefan Bradl over the race weekend. KTM had a new exhaust and new fairing, the exhaust a rather exotic shape looking more like a musical instrument. Yamaha had a new swingarm and a new front fender, the swingarm a slight improvement in terms of grip, but not a massive difference. Aprilia were working on a ride-height device and some aero.
The teams have now packed up and are off for a free weekend, before heading to Le Mans for the next race.
