Thursday 4pm MotoGP test times - Sepang II

MotoGP lap times as of 4pm on Thursday, during the third and final day of the second official Sepang test.
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, but only odd drops have so far been reported on Thursday.

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.

"Before the nonsense starts, look at the lap times . The ducati doing laps under Stoners first day times" Wow. I've seen a lot of desperate attempts to try to justify the unjustifiable, but the quoted comment above is a beauty. If you have to go to that much trouble to try to make out things aren't that bad, things really are that bad. Utter desperation from some totally bewildered Rossi fans. TedG should be here soon to tell us how what we saw today was a step in the right direction for Rossi/Ducati :)
