Yamahas in action at the Circuit de Catalunya

The factory Yamaha team eventually fell under the shadow of Ducati and Honda at the MotoGP Test at the Circuit de Catalunya weekend, but in fact Brazilian Alex Barros had dominated the time sheets for much of the two day session. He lapped under pole record time on the first day with a best effort of 1´44.112 and remained on course for the BMW on offer on Sunday until finally missing out to Loris Capirossi.

Barros' Gauloises Yamaha team-mate olivier Jacque was twelfth fastest at the end of the test, just behind the Fortuna Yamaha Team pairing of Marco Melandri (10th) and Carlos Checa (11th). Here you can enjoy footage of their efforts at the most important test session of the preseason.
