The second 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.

Quartararo was quickest for Petronas Yamaha on day one, using a 2019 bike. The French star is making his debut on the 2020 Factory-Spec M1 today.

The test marks Zarco's debut outing for Ducati and the first MotoGP laps since shoulder surgery for world champion Marquez, Nakagami and Oliveira (who also rode in the recent Shakedown).

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 and concludes at 6pm.
