Sepang II MotoGP test times - Thursday 11am

1 March 2012

Testing began at 10am and concludes at 6pm.

Honda riders Casey Stoner, Dani Pedrosa, Alvaro Bautista and Stefan Bradl are returning to action after missing day two while HRC carried out engine checks following a problem on Pedrosa's bike.

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 first two days of testing were both interrupted by rain storms.

The third and final official pre-season test will be held at Jerez from March 23-25, when the full 21-rider grid - twelve manufacturer bikes plus nine CRTs - will be on track together for the first time.
