Espargaro quickest on last day of MotoGP pre-season testing

Honda’s Pol Espargaro topped the time sheets as MotoGP pre-season testing concluded in Indonesia on Sunday with the Spaniard declaring “I’ve never been so fast”.

Espargaro secured the third and final day honours on the all new Mandalika Circuit by a mere 0.014 seconds from Yamaha’s defending world champion Fabio Quartararo.

Espargaro’s brother Aleix rode his Aprilia into third with less than a second covered the leading 20 riders.

Former champion Joan Mir was forced to skip the session with a suspected bout of food poisoning.

The new season opens in Qatar on March 6 with Indonesia hosting the second race a fortnight later.

Timings after the third and final day of pre-season MotoGP testing in Indonesia:

Pol Espargaro (ESP/Honda) 1min 31.060sec, 2. Fabio Quartararo (FRA/Yamaha) +0.014, 3. Aleix Espargaro (ESP/Aprilia) +0.325, 4. Franco Morbidelli (ITA/Yamaha) +0.356, 5.
