Arreón in the last breath of Maverick Viñales on the second day of the Sepang test for MotoGP, with a tiempazo of 1: 58.897, below the record of the pole that dates from 2015, with the 1: 59.053 of Pedrosa, and only 67 thousandths of the best record seen last year on this track, Lorenzo's work with the Ducati. The Yamaha Spaniard was the only one capable of rolling below 1:59 and he has gained a lead of 0.527 over Álex Rins, again second with the Suzuki.

The focus of attention was on Marc Márquez, who repeated the 'timing' of the previous day, rolling from ten thirty to two, moment of the generalized lunch break. Of course, this time the Spanish, quite depleted by the pains and lack of strength in the left shoulder, operated on December 4 to avoid further dislocation, raised his effort to 37 laps, eight more than in the previous day. However, he could not reach the top of the timesheets and could not reduce his great time of the first day, which made him lead with 1: 569.621. The Repsol Honda was 169 thousandths of his best time and a total of seven pilots passed him on the second day, but only five in the combined two days.

The times were very tight, with the first four separated for only 63 thousandths, until Mack destroyed the clock. After him was the aforementioned Rins half a second and more behind, Miller, the new number 12 has achieved its best time in his penultimate round, Dovizioso, Crutchlow, Rossi. It's great news for Honda's Englishman to be there in his reappearance after destroying an ankle last October, in the Australian Grand Prix, and he also confirms that the new Honda, a true evolution of the 2018, is very good looking.

Returning to Maverick, who on Wednesday said that the Yamaha was a bit aggressive, in addition to flying a lap was also seen a six-round turn with a very good pace, crushing the 1:59. His teammate Rossi was missing four thousandths to reduce the best time of the first day, but it is good news for him, his team and his legion of followers that is still up there. Yamaha has made important changes in its staff to try to please the myth, with new names and more weight in the facilities in Italy than before. Now all that's needed is for the M1 to improve so that 25 races are not returned without winning, as between Assen 2017 (Rossi) and Phillip Island 2018 (Maverick) .

The first ten places were occupied by Maverick, Rins, Miller, Dovizioso, Crutchlow, Maverick, Rossi, Marquez, Petrucci, Rabat. Further back, Aleix 13º, Pol 17º and Mir 21º.
