We've put together a list below showing the combined top 50 lap times from the final day of the opening 2016 MotoGP test at Sepang.

Only the final day was used as, following the withdraw of the softer rear tyre after Loris Baz's accident, all riders were using only the harder option, reducing the number of variables.

However, there were differences in the front tyres, due to some development Michelin rubber not being available to most of the satellite riders. World champion Jorge Lorenzo estimated that the new front was worth 0.4-0.5s.

Lorenzo set the top eight lap times of the day and, with team-mate Valentino Rossi, the pair dominate the top 14 fastest laps. In total, the Movistar Yamaha riders set 23 of the top 50, divided 14 for Lorenzo and 9 for Rossi.

Honda has 13 laps in the top 50 courtesy of Marc Marquez (7), Cal Crutchlow (3) and Dani Pedrosa (3).

Although only featuring 11 times, Ducati notably has the most different riders in the top 50, led by Casey Stoner (3) and Hector Barbera (3), then Andrea Iannone (2), Scott Redding (2) and Danilo Petrucci (1).

Suzuki's top 50 presence was courtesy of Maverick Vinales (3 laps).

Reminds me that Colin Edwards, who tested the Michelins before the MotoGP regulars got to ride them, said that he thought Lorenzo would adapt best to the Michelins. Given Lorenzo's need for high lean angles and high midcorner speed, I thought Colin might be wrong. It seems that because Lorenzo doesn't depend as much on heavy braking entering corners as the others that is giving him an advantage with the Michelins.
