Vinales grabs the final P1 in testing



Maverick Vinales concluded MotoGP's pre-season testing at the top of the timesheets on a night when Marc Marquez crashed three times.

Vinales followed up his Saturday's P1 with back-to-back fastest lap times as he clocked a 1:54.330 around the Qatar circuit.

That put him 0.071s up on Andrea Dovizioso, who made a late improvement on the Ducati, while Honda's Dani Pedrosa was third.

Jorge Lorenzo finished the test in fourth place having been leading up until the final two hours of running.

The former World Champion, who has switched to Ducati from Yamaha, trialed the Italian outfit's new aerodynamic fairing for the first time on Sunday.

Alvaro Bautista, one of the night's early crashers, was fifth quickest followed by Scott Redding, Jonas Folger and Cal Crutchlow. The LCR Honda man was the final rider to get within half a second of Vinales' P1 time.

Tech 3 Yamaha's Johann Zarco and Marquez completed the top ten on Sunday.

It was trying day for the reigning MotoGP champ who was running the RC213V's new fairing for the first time as he crashed no fewer than three times. Marquez's best was 0.660s shy of Vinales' pace-setting time
