Tuesday 5pm MotoGP test times - Sepang

Sepang MotoGP test times as of 5pm on Tuesday, during day one of the first test session of 2012.
A damp track caused by overnight rain meant that although the track opened at 10am, all bikes remained in the pits until 11:15am.

All twelve manufacturer riders are present for the three-day test, plus the Forward Racing and BQR 'Claiming Rule Team' teams.

The test marks the first time that the new version of the Ducati GP12 has been seen in public.

World champion Casey Stoner is not testing today after aggravating an old back injury whilst stretching this morning. The Australian is now resting and aims to return tomorrow.

The four laps credited as Stoner's by the circuit timing screens were actually set by test rider Kousuke Akiyoshi, whose name we have used in the list below...

So if I follow your logic of all " We hate Rossi not matter what" I would say last year at first test he was 14th not 7th (here or here about). Please use articles from last year if you are short term memory kind. He finished...7th ish ( does not matter where as long as he was not first). So He gained more or less 7 places between testing and end of the year.... Make the match dums a***s!! And do not pay to much attention as he ran a soft tires at the end of the day...it looks like it at least. And testing is not racing not quite yet. So be patient...the Championship is finishing late this year.
