Following the recent Shakedown test, MotoGP race riders from Honda, Ducati, Yamaha and Suzuki have joined the Sepang track action with the official test running from Wednesday to Friday.

Jorge Lorenzo is the only 2019 race rider absent, due to his recent wrist injury.

Repsol Honda team-mate and reigning champion Marquez is returning from shoulder surgery in December - and was fastest on day one - and LCR's Crutchlow is on track for the first time since serious ankle injuries at Phillip Island in October.

Testing takes place from 10am to 6pm.
