Repsol Honda Team on top on day two in Sepang
Casey Stoner
The MotoGP teams enjoyed a productive second day of testing at the Sepang circuit in Malaysia with Casey Stoner topping the time sheets.

After missing the first day of testing yesterday due to a back strain, Casey, the 2011 World Champion enjoyed good track conditions on his first outing on the bike in 2012. Casey spent the day doing a chassis comparison between his two RC213V chassis' and finished the day as the fastest rider with a time of 2'00.895.

The MotoGP teams will return tomorrow for the final day of this first Sepang test.

CASEY STONER 1st 2'00.895

"It was great to be able to ride today and everything went pretty well, although I would have liked to have done a few more laps. We spent most of the day on the new chassis comparing it back to back with the one we had in Valencia and we found a good direction and where we want to go. As usual it would be great to take some elements from one chassis and some from the other, but at least we found the direction we are happy to follow. We used the hard front tire this afternoon but found we had more chattering with it so we have to work on this, there is still room for improvement. We didn't get a chance to use the new spec tires that Bridgestone have brought here, we'll try them out tomorrow and go from there".
