Unfortunately, on lap 15 he was victim to an unexpected but harmless crash that forced him to interrupt the testing day. Ben instead managed to keep a constant pace aiming to collect useful data for the Championship.

Late in the afternoon a brief rain shower came down and all the MotoGP riders came back into the pits. Tomorrow sees the last day of testing to finalize the set-up before the season gets underway.

Andrea Iannone - Energy T.I. Pramac Racing Team: "It was a positive day despite the crash that forced me to stop. I was able to have a good feeling with the bike and get some good impressions.

I'm sorry for the fall but I was trying to improve my pace and unfortunately these things can happen. I am very positive and I hope to be fast as soon as possible. "

Ben Spies - Ignite Pramac Racing Team: “We didn’t have a great day, but now we know a little more about the bike and we improved quite a bit even with my shoulder problem.

I am happy because it feels better and better. We know we are a bit slower than where we wanted to be, but I had some good laps, we worked hard and we have got some changes to do tomorrow to get more confidence with the bike.”
