Sepang Test

First day come and gone and you can read anything you like into such but one thing is for sure KTM have work to do hope Zarco is getting paid well.

Re: Sepang Test

Pol seems to be more accustomed to riding a bike "in development." It will be a big test for Zarco this year.
The yamaha seems to make its riders look good. If not ultimately a championship winning bike.

What a SHOCK!

Marquez Fastest on Day One At Sepang MotoGP Test
Wednesday, February 6, 2019
Marquez returns from injury to top Day 1 at Sepang
The number 93 takes top honours despite his ongoing recovery


Despite still suffering the effects of surgery on his left shoulder during the winter break, Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) has topped the timesheets on Day 1 at the Sepang Test with a 1:59.621, 0.259 faster than Alex Rins (Team Suzuki Ecstar) in second and 0.316 quicker than third place Maverick Viñales (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) as 2019 revs back into life. Marquez completed 29 laps on Day 1 before stopping in the early afternoon to give his left shoulder a rest ahead of the next two days, with the reigning World Champion heading for more physio in the afternoon. Teammate Jorge Lorenzo sits out the test due to injury, but there were three Hondas in the top ten as Takaaki Nakagami (LCR Honda Idemitsu), fastest in Jerez, took seventh and Stefan Bradl (Honda Test Team) ended Day 1 in P9, just under six tenths off Marquez.

Re: Sepang Test

Just off Lorenzo's record lap at sepang last year.

Re: Sepang Test

I'm just hoping that its a competitive season, and someone, hopefully Rossi, but at age 40, that's a stretch, will be keeping Marquez honest,

Day 2 times, Vinales, just off Lorenzo's track record, Lorenzo still out following wrist surgery. It will be interesting to see how he and Marquez work as teammates.

Re: Sepang Test

Wow - Day 4. The top four places are all Ducati!

Mind you, Marquez, Lorenzo and Crurthlow are all injured or recovering. Maybe different when they are all fit.?
