2022 Sepang MotoGP Test Sunday 2pm Times: Bastianini Fastest As Rain Stops Play

Rain has called an end to the action at Sepang, a brief downpour soaking the track and leaving it wet. Whether it dries out or not depends on whether the sun comes out, but it's been overcast all day, so that is far from a given.

Most teams had already stopped for lunch before the rain came, pausing in the midday heat, the only exception being Honda and Yamaha, who both needed the track time in very low grip conditions. Honda, because the 2022 RC213V has been designed to address the lack of rear grip, and Yamaha, because the M1 relies heavily on corner speed, and so they have traditionally struggled when grip is low.

But the times remain unchanged since this morning. Enea Bastianini is still fastest, with a new unofficial lap record, ahead of Aleix Espargaro and Jorge Martin, while Alex Rins leads Maverick Viñales and Pecco Bagnaia.
