Lorenzo Quick lap times were easy to achieve

The Spaniard set a blistering pace despite feeling under the weather

THE 2015 MotoGP World Champion Jorge Lorenzo has set an astonishing pace on the opening day of the Sepang test despite being unwell.

The Spaniard has dominated day one of the Sepang test in Malaysia on-board his new YZR-M1 although his physical condition is not perfect.

Easing slowly into his rhythm, Lorenzo moved up to fifth place at the end of the first hour before ekeing out a lead to take to the top of the standings where he remained until the end of the session.

With pace not being an issue, the Spaniard decided to test various setting on his bike to end the day 1.033s ahead of the rest of the field with his fastest lap of the day being 2:00.684.

Speaking after day one, Lorenzo said: ‘I‘m very happy and surprised about the feeling I had today with the Michelin tyres. The lap times were relatively easy to achieve and every time we exited pit lane we improved something on the bike to understand the electronics better and they adapted very well to the Michelin tyres.

‘I‘m very happy with the change, because Sepang, for me, is always difficult. Today I only slept two hours because of the jetlag and I have a sore throat so I‘m taking antibiotics. My physical condition is not perfect, but to ride two or three laps, I can do that very well. If I was fitter I could do longer stints.’

Testing resumes tomorrow at 10am local time in Sepang.
