Maverick Vinales continued his fine form at the Losail International Circuit when he topped the combined times in Qatar this evening.
Despite the fact that the new Yamaha rider had a crash in the earlier session that left him totally unscathed, his times were unchallenged by the rest of the 23 strong grid.
Andrea Iannone was second quickest for the Suzuki Ecstar team, edging out reigning world champion, Marc Marquez. Prior to his second placed time, Iannone was way down the grid in P17, however his late charge definitely paid dividends.
The fastest rookie of the session was Johann Zarco who finished fourth behind Marquez and ahead of the Ducati ridden by Andrea Dovizioso.
Valentino Rossi finished the session tenth while his former Yamaha teammate, Jorge Lorenzo was 12th.
