MotoGP/ Day 2 Testing/ Sepang

Marc Marquez is still dominating the test times in a very hot and muggy Sepang, Malaysia. You have to wonder if this is where it all starts for him for 2014, or if he is going to see pressure from the likes of Lorenzo, Pedrosa and possibly Rossi. Rossi had a solid day yesterday, finishing with second best time, but a little way off of Marquez. We also have to remember that this is testing and that they are trying to find the correct bike set up, so these are not ultimately the best times they could be doing. Crutchlow must be a little worried though, when it lloks like another dog day for Ducati, especially with ex Tech 3 team mate Bradley Smith ahead on times. Makes you wonder if ducati have made any ground with this bike, but as I said, this is testing….
