The factory Ducati team finished MotoGP winter testing with both riders in the top two places. Francesco Bagnaia, the current world champion, set a new, albeit unofficial, Lusail track record, while teammate Enea Bastianini was 1 seconds behind his time of 50.952:0.120.

Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia +0.308) was third, and the fourth and highest ranked non-factory team rider was Spaniard Marc Marquez (+0.383), who even held the fastest time of the day for a while towards the end of the test day. Rounding out the top five on the last day was Raul Fernandez (Trackhouse Aprilia +0.435), who still hasn't fully recovered from the injuries he suffered after falling in Sepang.

Bagnaia also achieved the highest measured speed, 351,7 km/h, and the Yamaha racers were not far behind him. Alex Rins reached 348,3 km/h.
