Reigning MotoGP champion Marc Marquez is not present, after fracturing his right leg in a dirt-track training accident last week.

The PBM team (Michael Laverty and Broc Parkes) is also absent, having decided to focus on machine development back at its UK base. Iodaracing (Leon Camier and Danilo Petrucci), which skipped the first Sepang test, is again missing.

Testing began at 10am and concludes at 6pm however Valentino Rossi, currently fastest, has already concluded testing.

After Sepang the official Honda, Yamaha and Ducati teams will hold their final test at Phillip Island (March 3-5), while evaluating tyres for Bridgestone. The other teams will test at Qatar from March 5-7.
