Vinales fastest in warm-up at Sepang

Maverick Vinales was quickest in the warm-up session at Sepang on Sunday morning, setting the pace in the tropical weather just hours before the race.

The Spaniard impressed on a drying track with damp patches visible, clocking 2:01.146, a full second slower than his time during FP3 on Saturday, as the riders used slick tyres.

Ducati’s Andrea Ianonne came in second with a time of 2:01.353, two hundredths of a second behind.

Pole position rider Andrea Dovizioso came in fourth, behind this year’s Champion Marc Marquez, with times of 2:01.650 and 2:01.591 respectively.

Movistar Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo was fifth during the warm-up while last week’s winner at Philip Island Cal Crutchlow came in sixth place, clocking 2:01.790 to finish 0.644 seconds behind Vinales.
