After the first tests in Malaysia, the MotoGP caravan moved to Qatar, where the last pre-season tests take place on Monday and Tuesday.

At the Lusail circuit, the teams and drivers will continue to hustle tomorrow, before a short rest awaits them until March 8, when the first free practice of the 2024 season begins at the same venue.

Raul Fernandez, who had to miss the second and third days of testing in Malaysia after a fall and injury, returned to the motorcycle in Qatar. However, the Italian Franco Morbidelli is still absent, having been injured during training before the start of testing.

By the end of the penultimate day, Bagnaia's time was the closest to his rival for last season's title, Jorge Martin, and Aprilia rider Aleix Espargaro was also close, while Brad Binder and Fabio Di Giannantonio also finished the day in the top five.
