The Factory Yamaha duo of champion Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi have upped the pace in the second day of race two, but as Team Manager Wilco Zeelenberg pointed out, their competitors also improved.
Rossi went over half a second faster on the second day, whilst he was working on the older version of the Yamaha M1 to find a setting he is happy with. He moved onto the 2013 machine in the afternoon however rain stopped play soon afterwards, he will continue on the 2013 bike tomorrow.“The second day of testing in Sepang is finished and the balance of the day is positive for us, especially as we finished some work on the bike. We have some different parts for the bike for this season and we continue to work on the setting. The positive is we improved compared to yesterday in terms of time on one lap with the new tyre but especially on the rhythm, I was half a second faster than yesterday which is not so bad. Fourth position is quite good especially as we are less than half a second behind Pedrosa and Lorenzo. Unfortunately it started to rain so we had to stop earlier, because our target this afternoon was to go into 2’00 but we will try again tomorrow.”
