11.00 Checkered flag! The first day of testing for MotoGP in Malaysia ends here.

10.55 Five minutes from the end of the shift, they’ve all returned to the pits and hardly anyone will return to spin.

10.50 Rins and Bagnaia return to the pits, while Rossi joins Dovizioso and takes to the track with ten minutes to go.

10.42 Miller tries a time-attack! The Australian Ducati Pramac improves but is still fifth at 0.313 from Quartararo.

10.39 Valentinon Rossi scored a brilliant 1’59.916 on the Yamaha. To understand the wear status of the tires used by the “Doctor” to make this time.

10.34 The short run of Quartararo closes here, while Morbidelli, Vinales, Rins, P.Espargarò and Bagnaia return to shoot. The work of the riders on the track is currently still focused on the race pace with used tyres. Rossi is preparing to start another run.

10.28 Quartararo is very fast in the first two sectors, but loses three tenths in T3 and T4 remaining at 155 thousandths from his best time of the day.

10.19 Alex Rins flies with the Suzuki! Two consecutive laps under 2 minutes for the Iberian, who is also very competitive on the pace.

10.15 Rossi started to push and crossed the finish line in 2:00.8, very well Rins in 2’00.6 with the Suzuki.

10.11 Dovizioso completes his run and returns to the pits like teammate Petrucci. It should be noted that Marc Marquez has not yet returned to the track after the rain.

9.51 Rossi, A.Espargarò and Rabat are the only ones currently engaged on the track. The track conditions still do not allow to mark competitive times as in the morning.

9.47 Rossi recorded a time of 2:01.7 in the first lap with his Yamaha, while Aleix Espargarò scored a very good 2’00.7 with Aprilia.

9.45 Andrea Dovizioso and Valentino Rossi are finally back on track! Dovi also scores a very good T1 but then slows down in the following sectors.

9.39 Valentino Rossi is also expected to enter the track shortly to continue working on the development of the bike.

9.32 Good lap for Vinales who passes the finish line with 2.1 delay from today’s best time of Quartararo. Times are getting down considerably for everyone else as well.

9.27 The asphalt of Sepang is now totally dry and as a result Pedrosa, Vinales and Rabat also take to the track.

9.24 Bagnaia continues to improve and drops below the time of 2:02″, Miller is approaching his best dry times.

9.22 Jack Miller joins teammate Bagnaia and enters the track in the saddle of the other Ducati Pramac. All the other drivers are still stuck in the pits.

9.15 After an extremely cautious first lap, Bagnaia improves but remains over 5″ behind the best time of the day.

9.10 Francesco Bagnaia is the first of the World Championship drivers to come out of the pits with his Ducati Pramac.

9.04 The track is almost completely dry, but there is still no action on the Sepang track.

9.00 We start again in Sepang after the rain! A Yamaha test driver on the track!

8.55 Among the various rookies on the scene in these tests, in addition to Alex Marquez, we are following Brad Binder and Iker Lecuona with the KTM. For the moment they are twentieth and 19th respectively, while Alex Marquez is thirteenth at 973 thousandths just 242 from his brother.

8.46 The track is gradually drying out in the sun. It won’t take long to see action on the track again. We’re just over 2 hours away from the end and we’ll still be watching a lot of action on the Malaysian track!

8.42 Great balance in Sepang. The first 14 drivers are enclosed in just 994 thousandths. Apart from Quartararo and Morbidelli, also, from Rins, third, to Petrucci, 14th, the gap is just 744 thousandths.

8.37 Yamaha sat quite well, with four bikes in the top nine positions. The duo of the Petronas team took the lead, while Vinales was sixth and Rossi was ninth.

8.35 Currently the drivers are stationary in the pits. It rained in Sepang, but now the sun is back. The track is rapidly drying out.

8.32 Here’s the ranking after the morning session.

8.30 Good morning and welcome.

Good morning friends of OA Sport and welcome to the real-time updates of MotoGP Tests in Sepang. After a long winter a new season finally begins  that promises battles and surprises. There is great curiosity to understand what will be the relationships in the Yamaha factory. The official team has already announced the drivers of 2021: the Spaniard Maverick Vinales and the French Fabio Quartararo. Valentino Rossi, if he wants to continue his MotoGP adventure, will eventually have to settle for the Yamaha Petronas Team.

The headlights will all be for the reigning Spanish world champion Marc Marquez, this year flanked by his brother Alex in the Honda Repsol Team. The Iberian rider will go after the ninth world title, equaling Valentino Rossi.

The feeling is that only Quartararo and Vinales are able to undermine Marquez’s reign, however it will depend on Yamaha’s real technical consistency. Andrea Dovizioso’s Ducati is also waiting for redemption after a season below expectations.

The British public will also be able to follow with interest Cal Crutchlow, ready to face a great new season with the Honda LCR. Have fun so with our live updates.
