MotoGP: Qatar rain disrupts day 3 of testing

Home / Formula1 / MotoGP: Qatar rain disrupts day 3 of testing

The whole MotoGP paddock team was disappointed to conclude the final day of preseason testing at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar yesterday without being able to ride due to a sudden rainstorm.

Riders were looking forward to testing some new settings they found in the previous days, but were unable to do so as the rain caused the wet track to reflect the glaring floodlights, making for unrideable conditions. As there were also no wet weather tyres available the session was red flagged and the teammates had no other option than to wait for the weather to clear up and a dry race line to form on track. When there was still no sign of improvement in the weather conditions after 7pm the teams were forced to call it quits.

With no track-action being done by any of the riders, the positions remain those of yesterday. The paddock now looks forward to return to the Losail International Circuit on Thursday the 26th of March for the first Grand Prix weekend of the season under the floodlights in Qatar.
