2014 Sepang MotoGP FP2: Lorenzo Dominates Rain-Hit Session

Jorge Lorenzo has lead the way during a rain-affected MotoGP FP2 at Sepang; the session was initially delayed by twenty five minutes due to a torrential downpour that fell at the conclusion of Moto3 FP2 as the circuit was blanketed in thick cloud. Once the rain halted the wind picked up and managed to sweep the track and quickly dry it out enough for the riders to emerge from the pit lane. Lorenzo circulated with impressive consistency and ended up at the top of the time sheets, his benchmark time was some thirteen seconds slower than the pace set in the morning's opening practice despite the track drying considerably by the end of the session.

Alex Marquez posted the third fastest time finishing ahead of his primary Championship rival Jack Miller by six thousandths of a second as two hundredths covered the top four.

Efren Vazquez claimed fifth spot ahead of his countrymen Isaac Vinales and Alex Rins while Danny Kent, Enea Bastianini and John McPhee rounded out the top ten placings. Warning flags were displayed around the circuit at the conclusion of the session as monsoonal rain began to fall, the unpredictably tropical conditions emerging much earlier on in the weekend than previous years at the Malaysian circuit.
