2017 Sepang MotoGP Test Tuesday Final Times - Iannone Fastest On Dry Afternoon

Andrea Iannone has ended the second day of testing at Sepang on top of the timesheets. The Suzuki rider took advantage of the best conditions at the end of the day to drop into the 1'59s, finishing four tenths ahead of Maverick Viñales on the Movistar Yamaha. Alvaro Bautista ended in third on the Aspar Ducati, with Valentino Rossi in fourth, just ahead of a very strong showing for Johann Zarco on the Tech 3 Yamaha. After a difficult start on Monday, Jorge Lorenzo made a big improvement moving up to 8th, but more importantly, just a couple of tenths behind Rossi, and fractionally slower than his Ducati teammate Andrea Dovizioso. Marc Marquez was the quickest Honda, ending the session in tenth, a second behind Iannone.

Early days and all that but only Marquez in the top 10 (in tenth)... Another catchup year? It would be a real test for Marc to have to "settle for points" again. We know how much he hates that!

Is Bradleys second off the pace compared to Pol a direct result of his knee injury or is he struggling with the chassis and/or the Michellins?
