Last year's runner-up was joined on the same time - 1:41.0 by Sandro Cortese.

The Valencia test was not officially timed, but the duo set the pace on the unofficial timesheets.

Maverick Vinales put in perhaps the surprise performance of the day, rounding off the top three just two-tenths of a second behind the leading duo as he prepares for his rookie season - and finishing six-tenths ahead of team-mate Sergio Gadea.
