Testing began at 10am and concludes at 6pm.

Rain has been falling since 12pm. Only Hector Barbera has been out since, ignoring thunder and lightning to record some wet weather laps... until he slid off his Pramac Ducati at 1:15pm.

Repsol Honda riders Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa - first and second on day one - plus fellow RC213V riders Alvaro Bautista (Gresini) and Stefan Bradl (LCR) have not been on track. An official explanation is yet to be given by HRC.

Karel Abraham (Cardion AB Ducati) withdrew from the test on day one due to pain from shoulder and back injuries sustained at Jerez last week.

The second Sepang test finishes on Thursday evening, after which only one more official test (at Jerez) will remain before the start of the racing season.
