Jorge Lorenzo has lead the way during a rain-affected MotoGP FP2 at Sepang; the session was initially delayed by twenty five minutes due to a torrential downpour that fell at the conclusion of Moto3 FP2 as the circuit was blanketed in thick cloud. Once the rain halted the wind picked up and managed to sweep the track and quickly dry it out enough for the riders to emerge from the pit lane. Lorenzo circulated with impressive consistency and ended up at the top of the time sheets, his benchmark time was some thirteen seconds slower than the pace set in the morning's opening practice despite the track drying considerably by the end of the session.
Marc Marquez was the only rider who could get close to Lorenzo, ending the session two tenths behind while morning pace-setter Dani Pedrosa took third place however he was a full second behind Lorenzo. Andrea Dovizioso and Aleix Espargaro claimed fourth and fifth places respectively ahead of Hector Barbera, Stefan Bradl and Andrea Iannone. Iannone crashed late in the session and was nursing his left arm as he walked away, he was also limping having injured his leg in his crash during the race at Phillip Island. Nicky Hayden and Cal Crutchlow rounded out the top ten.
