Casey Stoner set the pace today in the MotoGP event is out of season in Sepang. The Australian, and the four riders to factory Honda, was very impressive on the track in Malaysia such as Honda RC212V 2011 seems to be hitting its stride just before the season opener in Qatar in a few weeks. The Honda riders do not have all things sewing however, as Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo was very fast, as were the American Ben Spies and Colin Edwards.
“It’s good to be back at Sepang, working and developing the GP11. We spent the morning at least a few things and confirming what we had to know the last time we were here. Everything pretty much went according to schedule, but I had a accident at turn one bit at the end of the morning session. It was really hot, and I lost my head and turned, but I was going slow and doing no harm to me or the bike. Today less experienced conversation we had last time so that is very good. We need to maintain the reduction in the next two days and also find a little more traction, so we have plenty to keep busy. ”
