The American Yahama rider Colin Edwards has been fastest in official practice for tomorrow's Malaysian MotoGP, with newly crowned world champion Valentino Rossi close behind in Kuala Lumpur.

Australia's Casey Stoner, who surrendered his world title to Rossi at last month's Japanese Grand Prix, registered the third fastest time on his Ducati.

Yamaha ace Rossi is gunning for victory in a bid to set a new record for the highest number of points achieved in a racing season.
