If in the first two days of testing, Honda and Yamaha were at the top of the leaderboard, the third day came the Ducati to be the leader. Jorge Lorenzo has set the third-day reference and the best time in the three days 1.58.830.

Lorenzo unofficially beat the record of the Malaysian circuit. At the end of the day Lorenzo said: “The most important thing is that the motorcycle works, gives me a good feeling and I have improved many areas over last year. As I said on the first day, the bike has improved and is more suited for my style and can take advantage of my strengths. We are at first, we understand how to get the maximum, there is still a margin for improvement, but for the beginning we can not be happier than that – always in top, always in good rhythm, and I’m very fast.

Lorenzo followed with Pedrosa and Crutchlow with the best time. The Yamaha pilots have not been as fast as they did on the second day and completed the Sepang test on the 8th Rossi and 18th Vinales.

As we mentioned yesterday, Australian Jack Miller kept his fifth position and this shows that his adaptation to the Ducati prototype is fast.

The next MotoGP test will take place on the Buriram circuit between February 16-18.
