Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo shook off any rust from missing the final three
races of 2011 due to injury by posting the fastest time on the first day
of pre-season MotoGP test runs Tuesday.
Yamaha dominated to open the three days of tests at Sepang, with three
of its riders among the top four, while 2011 champ Casey Stoner of
Australia was sidelined by a pulled back muscle as teams unveiled their
new 1 000cc bikes.
The testing session marked an emotional return for riders to the Sepang
circuit for the first time since Honda rider Marco Simoncelli died here
in a shocking crash in October's Malaysian MotoGP.
