Sebastian Porto leads the way

Sebastian Porto leads the way

Sebastian Porto, last year's winner at Mugello in the quarter litre class, was back on form this morning for the first practice session. The Aprilia Aspar Argentinean set the fastest laptime during the one-hour practice.

Jorge Lorenzo was the top Honda rider, ending second fastest ahead of Aussie charger Casey Stoner and Alex de Angelis. The San Marinese dominated the first half of the session before crashing out but he walked unscathed from the incident and was quickly back on track.

Fifth fastest was Frenchman Randy de Puniet, who concluded the session ahead of reigning World Champion Dani Pedrosa and Spaniard Hector Barbera. Aprilia privateer Andrea Ballerini – a rookie in the 250cc class - ended in eighth, followed by Andrea Dovizioso and Jakub Smrz.
