Back to Sepang for MotoGP teams

Preseason continues for the MotoGP teams, with a three day date in Sepang starting tomorrow. It will be February´s final test, with next month´s Official Catalunya Test to follow at the beginning of March.

The majority of the premier class teams will gather at the Malaysian circuit, as the preparation and fine tuning ahead of the 2006 season takes shape. Honda, Ducati, Yamaha, Kawasaki and Suzuki all return to work after a busy schedule, one which started in Sepang and in some cases took in Australia and Qatar.

According to results obtained so far, and also the opinion of motogp.com users, the two strongest teams at the moment are Ducati Marlboro and Camel Yamaha. The Italian outfit´s two riders-Sete Gibernau and Loris Capirossi- clocked the fastest times of January´s Malaysian Test, although Valentino Rossi and Colin Edwards showed the power of the new M1 last week in Losail.

The meeting will also be a chance to check Marco Melandri´s form, as well as that of promising youngsters Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa on the RC211V. Suzuki MotoGP will be looking to solve any remaining problems with the new GSV-R after John Hopkins and Chris Vermeulen suffered interruptions in the previous two tests.

Motogp.com will keep you informed with extensive reports from each day of the test, alongside lap times, interviews and summaries from the day´s key players.
