It’s been way too long, but the wait is almost over. MotoGP™ bikes will soon be back on our screens as the paddock heads to Doha for the Official Qatar Test, with the premier class riders turning their wheels in anger for the first time since Portimao’s 2020 curtain closer.

And although the track action on the 5th, 6th, 7th, 10th, 11th and 12th of March isn’t going to be shown live, it doesn’t mean that you can’t keep up with everything that is happening at the first and vital 2021 MotoGP™ Test. Here at, we’ll have plenty of content to whet your appetites, including 90-minute LIVE episodes of After the Flag at the end of each day (18:30 CET) for VideoPass subscribers.

Presenters Neil Morrison and Louis Suddaby will be guiding you through all the reaction from Barcelona HQ, with Simon Crafar offering his expert analysis on the ground alongside Jack Appleyard. Interviews will be coming in thick and fast as the riders debrief what they learned at the end of each day, so you don’t want to miss out on any of that. 


In addition, fans will be able to feast upon highlights of the riders on track at the Losail International Circuit at the end of every day, as well as photo galleries and plenty of interviews. Live Timing will be up and running from 12:00-20:00 CET so you can follow the riders around each sector of every lap, and there will also be in-depth reports at the end of each day as the factories and teams roll out their new bikes and developments in Qatar. Shorter midday reports will also be posted alongside compilation footage of the riders in the earlier hours of their testing programmes.

The shakedown test kicks proceedings off on Friday the 5th of March with factory test riders and rookies on track, before the other riders then hit the asphalt for five eagerly anticipated days of testing across seven days at Losail. The excitement is building, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled on and across social media over the next couple of weeks to see and hear from all the MotoGP™ riders who are in Qatar.
