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), having skipped the first Sepang test, is again missing.

Testing began at 10am and concludes at 6pm.

Factory/Open status is as listed on the provisional MotoGP entry list. However a final decision on Factory or Open class does not need to be made until February 28. Are the Ducati Team testing with Factory or Open software? "We are testing the exact same spec bike as at Sepang 1..."

Blue = Factory class - Control ECU hardware, but manufacturer software.
20 litres of race fuel, five engine changes for the season. All engines must be identical throughout the year, within the same team (development freeze).Red = Open class - Full control ECU system, hardware and software.
24 litres of race fuel, twelve engine changes for the season. No engine development freeze, plus a softer rear tyre allocation relative to the Factory class.
Black = Test Rider.
