Phillip Island MotoGP test - Friday (Final)Feb-17-17.
The final day of the second official MotoGP test of 2017 took place at Phillip Island in Australia on Friday.
Testing took place from 9:45am to 5:45pm.
Maverick Vinales beat his own previous best lap of the week in the opening hour of the final day, which proved enough to keep him on top by 0.295s from reigning champion Marc Marquez.
Vinales - who set further laps good enough for P1 at the very end of the day - thus continued his perfect run of being fastest overall in every test since joining Yamaha: Valencia, Sepang Private, Sepang Offical and now Phillip Island.
All riders, with the exception of Karel Abraham, set their best lap time of the test today.
Tito Rabat was absent due to injury, but the rest of the 2017 grid were present in Australia. The final pre-season test will be held in Qatar from March 10-12.
