Marc Márquez finished the Sepang test with the fastest lap ever given to the track

If yesterday had already stayed very close to the best time ever achieved in the Malaysian trajectory of Sepang, during the closing of the first 100 percent pre-season tests that have taken place this morning (Spanish time), Marc Márquez has achieved the best given lap never to the track with a time of 1: 59,607 and with which it surpassed in something more than 71 thousandths to which it was in the power of Casey Stoner from 2012.

There is no need to say then that the current MotoGP World Champion has dominated the three days of training and on this last day he surpassed Valentino Rossi in almost two tenths and AJorge Lorenzo, who had a remarkable improvement and placed his Yamaha in the third position

Four have been the pilots able to get off the two minutes: Márquez, Rossi, Lorenzo and … Aleix Espargaró. The FTR-Yamaha of the Open category has given the first slap in the face to some of the Factory motorcycles and its registration, the fourth best of the three days placed him less than half a second of the reference time.

Young people come strong, better look back
Both Stefan Bradl and Dani Pedrosa have not had an easy day. The first suffered a fall in the first corner, the same where he fractured his ankle last year while the Spaniard had a runway without consequences in the morning. These two Honda closed the first six positions of the time table.

Andrea Dovizioso gave a little light of hope to Ducati improving his records yesterday in seven tenths and getting almost the best record of a Ducati on this track. It overcame Andrea Iannone that the three days have been very intoned considering the problems of the Italian brand and Cal Crutchlow, twelfth. For the next training of the end of the month, they expect to have a new evolution of pieces.

With the bike over the hand, Pol Espargaró has been eighth to just over a second of Marc Márquez and ahead of teammate Bradley Smith, who has been more lost today than in the previous two days. Another that has also ended in backward positions has been Álvaro Bautista.

Randy de Puniet with Suzuki has continued to accumulate miles for the development of the motorcycle and improved the time of the previous day at about eight tenths. They have also continued to acclimatise to their new mounts, with more problems than expected due to their experience, Nicky Hayden, Colin Edwards and Hiroshi Aoyama.
