The second day of the official MotoGP test of 2016 is underway at Sepang in Malaysia.

Reigning world champion Jorge Lorenzo was fastest by one-second over Movistar Yamaha team-mate Valentino Rossi on day one.

Retired double world champion Casey Stoner is back on track for Ducati, meaning he is riding alongside the MotoGP race riders for the first time since 2012.

The test was red flagged from 10:40-12:00 after a 290km/h (180mph) accident for Loris Baz on the main straight. The exact cause of the accident is yet to be officially confirmed but Michelin withdrew that (soft) spec of rear tyre as a precaution, leaving only the hard. Tyre pressures were also raised.

Lorenzo later fell at Turn 5, also without injury.

Testing takes place between 10am and 6pm.

Sepang will be resurfaced after this test...
