The test day in Jerez ended with Fabio Di Giannantonio's best time, but the ranking is all in all not very indicative, if not for a rediscovered Franco Morbidelli who was fast throughout the session and finally got to do a real test with Pramac's Ducati after skipping winter testing altogether.

The innovations brought by the houses were many, some good and some less so. The one who undoubtedly made another mistake was Honda, which also had the LCR pair with Zarco and Nakagami test the new prototype brought to Jerez by Bradl. Both of them, however, rejected the new RCV, just as both Marini and Mir had already done, who had a chance to try it out in Barcelona.

Yamaha brought a lot of material, from aerodynamics to a new chassis, via new electronic management and a brand new swingarm. Quartararo was especially pleased because for the first time he saw radical changes on the M1, but without totally promoting the work done by engineers in Iwata. Great work was also done by KTM, Aprilia and Ducati, with aerodynamic configurations seeming to be the playground on which all the racing departments are having the most fun today.

We hear all about how this test went from our correspondents Matteo Aglio and Andrea Scalera.
