All riders began to improve their lap times in their second outing and Johann Zarco topped the sheets. Valentino Rossi came back to the track with only three odd minutes remaining in the session, and quickly went to top the time-sheets. On their last laps Dani Pedrosa, Johann Zarco, Andrea Dovizioso all made quicker times than Rossi and climbed on top, leaving Rossi behind at fourth. Maverick Viñales will start the race from P5 followed by fellow Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo at P6. Championship leader Marc Marquez starts the penultimate round from behind at P7, with a chance to clinch his fourth MotoGP World Championship. The top 10 of the grid is completed by Alex Rins, Andrea Iannone and Cal Crutchlow respectively. The penultimate round of the MotoGP World Championship goes live from the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia tomorrow at 12:30 PM IST. The Malaysian round marks the first chance for Marc Marquez to get his hands on the 2017 Championship trophy. A mishap for Marquez and a win for Dovizioso would take the title fight down to the wire at Valencia. Let's hope for the best, and meanwhile stay tuned to BikesMedia for further updates on the 2017 MotoGP World Championship.
