MotoGP: Schedule changed thanks to threat of rain
The schedule for tomorrow’s Malaysian Grand Prix will now begin two hours earlier than planned, thanks to the threat of heavy rain due to arrive at the Sepang circuit tomorrow afternoon. Action will now kick off at 0200 UK time with the Moto3 race before MotoGP gets underway at 0500.
The decision came partly due to rider concerns raised during yesterday’s safety commission, with the final decision made after a delayed qualifying session this afternoon where the track was inundated by a monsoon burst.
