ANALYSIS: Which debutant impressed the most in Valencia?

All eyes were on the seven premier class stars making their official debuts with new factories at Tuesday’s Valencia Test as we finally got answers to the questions we’ve been asking for months. Fernandez’s best lap of Grand Prix was a 1:31.598 set in Free Practice 2 and, on only his first day with Aprilia’s RS-GP, the 22-year-old found a further 0.258 at the Test by setting a 1:31.340. Espargaro’s best lap of the Grand Prix was a 1:30.936 and he managed to go 0.179 seconds faster on Tuesday. Mir’s 1:30.914 was 0.693 seconds slower than he managed in Q2 on Saturday afternoon and he was able to better his best race lap on only five occasions throughout the Valencia Test. The new Moto2™ World Champion posted a 1:31.730 to finish his first day in MotoGP™ only 1.697 seconds away from the fastest man.
