MotoGP: Sepang Test Day 3

The final day of the Sepang MotoGP test saw the table shaken up a bit, with Rossi leading from Hopkins, Capirossi and Pedrosa. However, most teams were using qualifying tyres, so it's hard to draw any conclusions.
The main stories from this test seem to be that the Suzuki machines are still quick, Rossi is unsurprisingly still quick, and the Hondas are surprisingly still slow. Michelin tried out a new tyre construction, which Rossi and Edwards were especially happy with.
The next test is at Phillip Island, Australia. It will be crunch time for Suzuki, who will be desperate to carry on their excellent testing performance to the Island. Honda will be hoping that the track suits their bikes better than Sepang, where they have struggled horribly.
It will be interesting to see how the bikes perform on such a different circuit to Sepang.
