Rossi fastest on first day at Sepang
Thursday, 04 February 2010

The MotoGP riders complete their first day of testing in Malaysia, with the 2009 World Champion topping the timesheet.


A busy first day of testing for the official MotoGP team riders concluded at the Sepang International Circuit on Thursday, as work on the 2010 prototypes that will compete in this year’s World Championship continued.

Fiat Yamaha’s Valentino Rossi set the fastest time of the field of 17 participants, and the Italian’s time of 2’01.411 on the new M1 was just under a second off the pace (2’00.518) which secured him pole position in the 2009 race at the track, as he continued with the development of the chassis and engine first tested at Valencia last November.

Casey Stoner’s Ducati Desmosedici GP10 was separated by a gap of 0.491s, as the Australian put in 42 laps. The Ducati Marlboro team are trying out new forks and two fairings – used in the final four races of 2009 – on the machine, which also has a redesigned engine.

Settling straight back in, Colin Edwards enjoyed his session on the M1 of the Monster Yamaha Tech3 team. The American, who took fifth place in last year’s Championship, was the third and final rider to make it under the 2’02 mark, with a best lap of 2’01.932.

The first rider out on track for the day was Loris Capirossi, who emerged at 9.07am local time. The Italian clocked the fourth quickest lap of day one, as his 58 laps turned in a time of 2’02.102. The official Suzuki team has three chassis to test for the veteran rider (one from 2009, two new), whilst the new engine will be available at the next Sepang test at the end of February.

Jorge Lorenzo waited until the penultimate lap of his 57 turns to set his time of 2’02.165 as he also rode the new M1. The 2009 World Championship runner-up finished the day with a 0.754s gap to rival and team-mate Rossi.

Repsol Honda are testing their new bike with slight modifications to the chassis which was used at the Valencia test. Their engine, modified for better endurance, and some new electronics are being given a run through by Andrea Dovizioso and Dani Pedrosa, who were sixth and eighth respectively on the timesheet. The Italian was 0.465s behind Lorenzo, with Ducati Marlboro’s Nicky Hayden in seventh (2’02.792).

Mika Kallio’s first experience with the Desmosedici GP10 of the Pramac Racing team delivered a lap just under the 2’03 mark, as he completed 70 laps and was ninth on the sheet.

Of the rookies, Héctor Barberá topped the times on his Ducati of Team Aspar with a best lap of 2’03.030, set on the 57th of his 59 laps. Following the Spaniard, the remaining seven riders all recorded times within 0.7s.

Aleix Espargaró (Pramac Racing) was 11th, with Ben Spies (Monster Yamaha Tech3) and Randy de Puniet (LCR Honda) preceding Álvaro Bautista (Rizla Suzuki), Marco Simoncelli (San Carlo Honda Gresini), Marco Melandri (San Carlo Honda Gresini) and Hiroshi Aoyama (Interwetten Honda MotoGP). For the Gresini team, Simoncelli has at his disposal a factory spec RC212V.

Rain at 4.30pm local time forced the riders off track, half an hour before the scheduled finish of the day’s activities, and action is scheduled to resume on Friday morning at 9am local time.

I wouldn't read too much into it yet:

MOTOGP » Spies: No rush to prove anything

Ben Spies admits there is no pressure heading into the Sepang test as he continues preparations for the 2010 MotoGP season
Ben Spies insists he is in 'no rush to prove anything' as the Monster Yamaha Tech3 rider prepares for this week's MotoGP test session at Sepang.

Spies heads to the Malaysian circuit to continue preparations for the 2010 season, when he heads to MotoGP as the reigning World Superbike champion.

The American impressed in his wildcard ride in Valencia at the end of the 2009 season – finishing seventh – and then produced some strong laptimes during the end of year test at the Spanish venue.

Spies now heads to Sepang for the first of two tests on his 2010 bike and he admitted that chasing laptimes during the first of those tests wasn't a priority.

“The good thing is that we go back again three weeks later, so I'm not in a rush at all to prove anything in the first test,” he told MotoGP.com. “Time-wise I'm not so concerned, I just want to put laps in and mess with the bike so I'm actually changing things. After the test at Valencia we didn't change anything with the bike, so really I'll just get a solid set-up and then we'll go back there again in three weeks and that's where I'll really start trying to get down to my business, doing the best I can and getting up to speed.

“This first test is more just a shakedown. I've not ridden a motorcycle since Valencia, I haven't ridden a motocross bike – I haven't done anything. I've just been lying low, so I have to knock the dust off and start working with the new team and see how that goes.”

Spies added that he wasn't sure what to expect from the new M1 prior to hitting the track for the test, but said he felt that 2010 could be the season when satellite teams are able to get closer to the main manufacturer outfits.

“I'm going to ride it as hard as I can whatever I'm given,” he said. “I would like to say that with the new engine rules and things like that, that I feel that a satellite team bike from any manufacturer is going to be closer than it has been in recent years, just because it's a lot cheaper on a manufacturer to produce. But I really can't tell you what I'm going to be on compared to what the factory guys will be on, or if it's going to be the same identical bike. I have no clue right now but I'm just going to show up in Malaysia and start clicking off laps, and start that learning process.”
