Sepang Testing, Day 2, Preliminary Results

The Suzukis continue to dominate on the second day of testing at Sepang. John Hopkins heads the timesheets once again, with team mate Chris Vermeulen not far behind. But today, they did not manage a one-two, as Colin Edwards squeezed his Yamaha between the American and the Australian. Behind Vermeulen, Alex Barros set a very respectable 4th time, confirming once again that the d'Antin package looks like being very competitive this year. Valentino Rossi is 5th, ahead of Loris Capirossi and another strong showing by Randy de Puniet.

The Hondas are down the timesheets again, though not quite as far as yesterday. Nicky Hayden was faster than team mate Dani Pedrosa for the second day running, with Marco Melandri the fastest satellite Honda today. Yesterday's surprise packages Kenny Roberts Jr and Makoto Tamada are well down the running order today.

The three-day test concludes tomorrow.
