The third and final day of the official MotoGP test of 2016 is underway at Sepang in Malaysia.

Reigning world champion Jorge Lorenzo was fastest on day one, then Pramac Ducati's Danilo Petrucci on day two, before Loris Baz's huge accident saw the soft rear tyre withdrawn for the remainder of the test.

Retired double world champion Casey Stoner, who rode alongside the MotoGP race riders for the first time since 2012 yesterday, is also back on track today for Ducati.

Testing takes place between 10am and 6pm, but a damp track kept all riders in the pits until just before midday. A rain shower sent them back to their garages at 2pm, but the sunshine has since returned and bikes are starting to head back out on track.

Sepang will be resurfaced after this test...
