Sepang Tests

0413_T05_Hayden_action

Casey Stoner set the pace on the third and final test day in Malaysia on Saturday, registering a hot lap of 2’01.043 on the last of his 38 turns of the Sepang circuit to keep him ahead of the pack. Having complained of continued pain in the wrist which hindered him in the second half of the 2008 season – the Australian is still recovering from the corrective surgery he underwent in November – Stoner kept his workload to a minimum but was still quick enough to end the day on top, by a 0.094s margin from rival Valentino Rossi.
