Fabio Quartararo topped the first day of MotoGP testing at Misano by 0.023 seconds over Franco Morbidelli.

Quartararo set the pace in the morning session as he worked on set-up ahead of the Misano race and led the timesheets with a 1m33.539s lap.

He took over from world championship leader Marc Marquez, who crashed at the Carro Hairpin at Turn 14 while testing a new chassis. He was not hurt.

Marquez's 1m33.697s put him fifth in the morning session, and he set the pace early on when action resumed after the lunch break with a 1m33.471s, while the sister SRT bike of Franco Morbidelli fell in 0.190s behind.

With 90 minutes remaining, Quartararo once again took the top spot away from the Honda rider with a 1m32.996s lap, which stood as the benchmark through to the drop of the checkered flag.
