MotoGP- Three Yamahas at the top again after Jerez Practice!

Three Yamahas top the timesheets at Jerez




Friday, 28 March 2008 - Jerez, Spain

Jorge Lorenzo delivered a perfect performance in front of his home fans on Friday, when he finished day one of the Spanish Grand Prix at Jerez on top of the timesheets!

The young rookie, who took pole position and then second place on his MotoGP debut at Qatar, was under lap record pace in the afternoon session and looks on-course to give his passionate home fans an exciting weekend.

The Fiat Yamaha rider had been fifth fastest in the morning session but gradual work on his set-up, starting from a good base following the February test, led to an improved pace in the warmer afternoon session and a best time of 1min 40.321secs - enough to edge out superstar team-mate Valentino Rossi by 0.043 seconds, with Yamaha Tech 3 rider Colin Edwards in third.

Combined times after FP1 and FP2:

1. Jorge Lorenzo SPA Fiat Yamaha Team (M) 1min 40.321 secs
2. Valentino Rossi ITA Fiat Yamaha Team (B) 1min 40.364 secs
3. Colin Edwards USA Yamaha Tech 3 (M) 1min 40.584 secs
4. Nicky Hayden USA Repsol Honda Team (M) 1min 40.673 secs
5. Dani Pedrosa SPA Repsol Honda Team (M) 1min 40.815 secs
6. Casey Stoner AUS Ducati Marlboro Team (B) 1min 40.828 secs *
7. Andrea Dovizioso ITA JiR Scot Team (M) 1min 40.909 secs
8. James Toseland GBR Yamaha Tech 3 (M) 1min 41.028 secs
9. Loris Capirossi ITA Rizla Suzuki MotoGP (B) 1min 41.157 secs
10. Alex de Angelis RSM San Carlo Honda Gresini (B) 1min 41.189 secs
11. Randy de Puniet FRA LCR Honda MotoGP (M) 1min 41.268 secs
12. Chris Vermeulen AUS Rizla Suzuki MotoGP (B) 1min 41.303 secs
13. Shinya Nakano JPN San Carlo Honda Gresini (B) 1min 41.393 secs
14. John Hopkins USA Kawasaki Racing Team (B) 1min 41.519 secs
15. Marco Melandri ITA Ducati Marlboro Team (B) 1min 41.825 secs
16. Sylvain Guintoli FRA Alice Team (B) 1min 42.115 secs
17. Anthony West AUS Kawasaki Racing Team (B) 1min 42.181 secs
18. Toni Elias SPA Alice Team (B) 1min 42.183 secs
