    The first official MotoGP test of 2018 has concluded at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia with Ducati's Jorge Lorenzo lapping in a time of 1’58.830 to establish an unofficial new track record.

    The Spaniard ended the day at the top of the timings, and the three-day test, despite having a harmless crash late in the morning, and praised the changes made to the Desmosedici GP 2018 machine.

    He said: “I leave Sepang very satisfied with the work that we have done over the last three days, not only because of the time that I set today, but also because I’m convinced that many aspects of the bike have improved since last year. Now I feel it’s better adapted to my riding style and I feel more at home when I’m riding it, but we still have to understand a few things to be able to get the best out of its potential. We are only at the start of the year but the sensations are already good and now it will be important to confirm them in the next test in Thailand.”
