Barberá continues form in Germany

Héctor Barbera continued with his current run of form in the 125cc class with provisional pole for the Veltins Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland this afternoon. The Aprilia rider stopped the clock at 1'27.870 to confirm his place at the top of the time sheets after a dominant session in which he was rarely threatened. Marco Simoncelli came closest with a quick lap at the end of the session but was still 0.283 seconds short of the Spaniard.

Pablo Nieto was third fastest whilst Youichi Ui proved that there is still life in his Grand Prix career with the final slot on the provisional front row.

Fellow veteran Mirko Giansanti was also on the pace throughout the session, eventually setting the fifth fastest time ahead of Casey Stoner, whilst Jorge Lorenzo's hand injury has reacted well to treatment and he was able to join the second row in seventh, just ahead of current series leader Andrea Dovizioso.
