MotoGP 2013 test campaign has concluded at Sepang, Honda and Yahama

The 2013 MotoGP test campaign has concluded at Sepang. The Hondas and Yamahas filled each of the first eight spots, with Repsol Honda rider Dani Pedrosa on top. The factory Yamahas of Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi were second and third, respectively. Repsol Honda rookie Marc Marquez slotted into fourth on Day 3. Unfortunately, all of the Ducatis are substantially off the pace. Not surprisingly, Nicky Hayden was the quickest of the Ducati crew, while finishing with the ninth quickest lap. The time gap is again fairly large to the factory Yamahas and Hondas.

If this test is any indication, Valentino Rossi will be very competitive this year. After two years away at Ducati, Rossi was quick from the off, and ended the test nipping at the heels of his Yamaha teammate, defending champ Jorge Lorenzo. American Ben Spies rode very few laps during the first two days of the test on his new Ducati, and sat out day 3 as his shoulder continues to heal from recent surgery.
