Idag återvände MotoGP-cirkusen till Sepang i Malaysia för ytterligare tester. Solen sken och termometern visade på 37 plusgrader... Den italienska Yamahaföraren och regerande MotoGP-mästaren Valentino Rossi var snabbast. Casey Stoner (Ducati) satte näst bästa tid och Andrea Dovizioso (Honda) noterades för tredje snabbaste tid.


Rossi om dagens körning:

“We started well today and we’re already very fast, so we’re quite happy about this. We’ve confirmed that the work we did at the last test was good and it’s clear we’re in good shape at this track. We worked on two or three different settings and today we’ve more or less made a decision about the right way to go with balance, suspension etc so this is good progress. We also tried some new electronic maps, to try to improve acceleration, but we need to do more work on this again tomorrow. It’s good to be fast at this stage and now we’re really just waiting to go to another track, to see how this new M1 will perform there. Tomorrow we will do a long run, maybe not race distance but just quite a few laps together, which will be the final part of our work at this track.”
