The third and final day of the official 2019 Sepang MotoGP test has got off to a hot start with Petrucci, Miller, Dovizioso and Vinales beating the previous fastest ever two-wheel lap of the Malaysian circuit in the opening hour.

Jorge Lorenzo, who held the previous unofficial lap record, is the only race rider absent from the test, 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, before Yamaha's Vinales took over at the top on day two.

Testing takes place from 10am to 6pm.
