For reigning Moto2 World Champion Morbidelli the Sepang test will provide an opportunity to continue his adaptation to Honda’s RC213V MotoGP machine, a process he started during four days of testing in Valencia and Jerez at the end of the 2017 season.
While Morbidelli was satisfied with his progress in Spain, the Italian is looking forward to this week’s test at the Sepang International Circuit, a fast and wide track that is very different in character to Valencia and Jerez and one at which he will be able to unleash the full potential of Honda’s RC213V MotoGP machine.
A leg injury sustained in a qualifying crash during the Malaysian Grand Prix weekend saw Tom Lüthi forced to sit out the final two Moto2 races of the season. The injury also meant that the former 125cc World Champion was unable to test alongside his new Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS teammate Morbidelli in Valencia and Jerez.
Now recovered from the injury, after completing an intensive rehabilitation program over the winter, Lüthi is looking forward to finally making his MotoGP debut aboard the Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS Honda RC213V in Sepang.
The three-day Sepang MotoGP test gets underway on Sunday 28th January.
