The second and final day of the Misano MotoGP test is underway in Italy.

Marc Marquez set the 18th fastest lap time, but only 1.1s from the top, during his MotoGP return on day one.

Sidelined for 100 days following bone realignment surgery on his right arm, the sore Repsol Honda star completed 39 laps in the morning session (+0.8s) and then sat out Tuesday afternoon to prepare for day two.

Meanwhile, Francesco Bagnaia and Ducati continued their momentum from the San Marino race weekend, topping day one of testing as Desmosedici riders filled three of the top four places.

Aleix Espargaro may now been replaced by four-in-a-row winner Bagnaia as Fabio Quartararo’s nearest title rival, but the Aprilia rider gave a reminder of his potential by leading the morning session with a time good enough for third overall.

Reigning world champion Quartararo was just behind Espargaro’s on-form team-mate Maverick Vinales in sixth, the Frenchman being impressed by his first taste of the 2023 Yamaha engine as well as a new chassis, which might be used next time at Aragon.

Suzuki gave Dominique Aegerter a surprise MotoGP debut alongside Alex Rins on Tuesday morning, then packed up from what was the team’s final test before leaving MotoGP at the end of this season.

Aegerter lapped just 2.6s from Bagnaia during his 33 laps and if Joan Mir is still not fit for Aragon, might the reigning World Supersport champion and newly crowned Moto3 title winner be back on the GSX-RR in Spain?

“Dominique did a very good job, only a few laps but reasonable times! Hopefully we’ll see Joan back with us in Aragon, and we should have an update about that in the next days,” said team manager Livio Suppo

Bagnaia was then quickest out of the blocks at the start of Wednesday’s action, leading Quartararo and Miguel Oliveira on the early 10am timesheets

Marc Marquez took to the track to begin his day two activities shortly after 10am.

Testing concludes at 6pm, with a break for lunch.
