Melandri fastest Honda Rider in Sepang Test

Marco Melandri finished the Sepang Test, which this week reunited the majority of the MotoGP teams, with the best time of all the Honda riders. The Italian signed off from the third session with a fantastic lap of 2´01.09, which left him mere milliseconds off the times set by Ducati Marlboro´s Sete Gibernau and Loris Capirossi, the two fastest riders of the practice.

The Fortuna Honda rider did however encounter a few problems fine tuning the RC211V, which were especially pronounced during the second day. It was in the final session that last year´s World Championship runner up showed his potential in the saddle of the Japanese factory´s prototype.

The young Italian made an assessment of his development in the Sepang Test for the motogp.com cameras.
