Pramac Racing riders Loris Capirossi and Randy de Puniet have contrasting emotions in the run-up to this weekend's Malaysian Grand Prix, with the two holding different opinions of the Sepang circuit.

Capirossi will make his penultimate start in Grand Prix racing and rates the 5.548km circuit among his favourites and hopes to show more of the form that took him to such a good result in Australia last weekend.

“Sepang is one of my favourite tracks, I hope to do well. In Australia I finished in ninth place, I think I made a good result considering my physical condition. It will be a tough race, but I’m so close to the end, and I want do it in best way possible.”

By contrast, De Puniet doesn't enjoy racing at Sepang quite as much although he enters the race in good form after a season's best sixth in Australia.

“I’m satisfied with what I did in Australia. I am so happy to race immediately in Malaysia, I just hope the bike will react in the same way, although I don’t like very much Sepang circuit.”

Free Practice for the Malaysian Grand Prix gets underway at 3:10am UK time on Friday morning and The Checkered Flag will have full coverage throughout the weekend.
