The opening day of official 2020 MotoGP action is underway at Sepang in Malaysia.

Following a Shakedown test for factory test riders, riders from manufacturers eligible for concessions (KTM and Aprilia) and rookies, the full 2020 grid will be on track for three days.

The test marks Zarco's debut outing for Ducati and the first MotoGP laps since shoulder surgery for world champion Marc Marquez, Takaaki Nakagami and Miguel Oliveira.

Triple MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo, who began his new role as a Yamaha test rider at the Shakedown, is also expected to ride at some stage during the Official Test.

Testing began at 10am.
