MotoGP times from day one of the opening test of 2007, held at Sepang and attended by Honda, Yamaha, Ducati, Suzuki and Kawasaki teams.

This week's outing is the second of three winter tests scheduled at the Malaysian circuit before the start of the new season, in Qatar on March 10, but marks the first time ever that all five major MotoGP manufacturers have had their new 800cc machines on track together. Indeed, of the expected 2007 grid, only the new Ilmor SRT team is absent.
