Lorenzo on pole at Sepang

Pramac Ducati's Hector Barbera again made good use of a tow to be the top Ducati rider in seventh place (+0.960s), with Honda LCR rookie Stefan Bradl the first rider outside one-second of pole.

Nicky Hayden led the factory Ducati challenge in ninth (+1.192s) on another tough weekend for the team, with team-mate Valentino Rossi only eleventh (+1.449s), the positions and time difference signally no relative improvement since winter testing at the track.

Starting between the factory Desmosedicis will be Alvaro Bautista, who missed the end of the session after falling from his Gresini Honda.

Aleix Espargaro held off Aspar team-mate Randy de Puniet by over half a second to be the leading CRT rider, with both lapping quicker than Karel Abraham's Cardion AB Ducati.

Avintia's Yonny Hernandez, who dislocated his collarbone last Sunday in Japan, has withdrawn from the remainder of the Malaysian weekend due to pain from his injury.
