2016 Sepang MotoGP Test Wednesday 1pm - Lorenzo Leads Stoner, Marquez, Rossi

Track action started late on the final day of testing at Sepang, after rain overnight and through the morning left the track wet. The track was empty until shortly after 11am, when Yamaha sent test rider Katsuyuki Nakasuga out to test conditions. One by one more riders joined in, until the track was filled, the teams trying to get as much testing in as possible before the rain expected for this afternoon starts to fall.

Jorge Lorenzo was the fastest of the riders shortly after 1pm, the Movistar Yamaha rider leading Ducati test rider Casey Stoner by two tenths of a second. Marc Marquez is not far behind on the Repsol Honda, while Valentino Rossi shot up to fourth shortly after 1pm, demoting the two factory Suzukis of Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Viñales into fifth and sixth.

Im so happy to see him back out there, unlike the other Ducati riders I'd say! Pity hes not going to be at PI test.
Are they all still using the hard tires?
