"Isn't it strange?", so Bruce Dickinson bellows in Iron Maiden's 1986 'Somewhere In Time' deep cut 'Déjà vu'. MotoGP bikes returned to the Jerez circuit just five days after the chequered flag fell on the Spanish Grand Prix to commence practice for the very first Andalusian GP - motorcycle grand prix racing's first ever double-header at the same track.
FP1 went very much to the form you'd expect after Yamaha secured its first MotoGP 1-2 since 2017 last Sunday courtesy of Petronas SRT's Fabio Quartararo and Maverick Vinales on the works team-run M1, with Vinales leading the morning times from team-mate Valentino Rossi.
However, in third place was Brad Binder, who - off-track excursion on lap seven last Sunday - had a stunning debut outing in MotoGP, displaying pace that bettered that of the race winners in the last 10 laps and easily qualified him for a crack at the top five.
