Qualifying changes for Moto2 and Moto3 from 2019.  They will now use the same format as MotoGP.  Only difference, as there are more of them is that Top 14 on average time from the three free practices will automatically go through to Q2 while the rest will fight it out in Q1.  The top 4 will go to Q1 for final grid positions.

All said but ,moto 2 for me next year as Binder will be the man I watch.Soon to be champ again. :thumleft:

Agreed and don't discount Darryn in Moto3.  He may well be challenging for podiums in his new team.

Lets hope the KTM team adapts to the new engine as fast, or faster than the main competitors, like Kalex.

First day of the 2019 seasons starts with testing from Valencia.

As a baseline, the current lap record during a race:  1:31.171 by JL99 on a Yamaha.

Best lap time today with 3 hours to go:  1:31.854 by Dovi.  He is followed by:
- MM93
- Petrux
- MV now 12 instead of 25 from on.
- Espargaro, A (Aprilia nogal)
- Espargaro, P (KTM)
- Miller
- VR46
- Morbidelli (Satellite Yamie)
- Rins

Early days, of course.

Day 1 testing done and dusted.

Some responses from riders:

Petrucci:  The 2019 factory Ducati have no negative points.
Morbidelli:  The Yamaha is like riding on butter. (He is referring to smoothness, not lack of traction)
Zarco:  KTM corner entry difficult and that makes me slow.
Vinales:  Suddenly, I feel much better, but still need to work on acceleration.  (It seems Yamaha used the 2018 bike from Sunday's race with one of two 2019 engines)
Marquez:  Difficult day, but the 2019 bike feels good.
Dovi:  Today we almost did nothing due to the rain.
Rossi:  Evolution engine 1 is better, but lacks acceleration.  Looking forward to test evolution engine 2 today.

Final times:

promising start to the season!  hope BiB and team adapts to the new engine quickly and the yamahas are more competitive to provide more interesting racing. 

bring it on!
