Jorge Lorenzo set the standard at Sepang on Friday afternoon, kicking off the Shell Advance Malaysian Grand Prix weekend with the fastest lap time in the first MotoGP practice.
A margin of 0.064s separated Lorenzo from second quickest participant Casey Stoner, on the weekend in which Valentino Rossi could seal the 2009 World Championship title. It was Rossi’s team-mate – who trails the Italian by 38 points in the standings – who set the pace in humid conditions however, with the ambient temperature reaching an energy-sapping 31°C.
Valentino Rossi took pole position number four of the 2009 season on Saturday afternoon with the fastest lap of MotoGP qualifying at Donington Park. The Fiat Yamaha rider’s time of 1’28.116 gave him his first top spot for the British Grand Prix since 2005 – the last occasion in which he won at the Midlands track.
