Stoner charges in final free practice

Casey Stoner has beaten Dani Pedrosa to the fastest time in the final free practice session on Friday morning at Losail. The Australian lapped in 2'03.042, over four tenths of a second quicker than title rival, and current series leader, Dani Pedrosa.

Aprilia's Alex de Angelis completed the session just 0.052s adrift of the defending World Champion, while the Fortuna Honda boys, Hector Barbera and Jorge Lorenzo, took fourth and fifth respectively.

Team Scot's Andrea Dovizioso was sixth fastest ahead of Honda factory colleague Hiroshi Aoyama. French privateer Sylvain Guintoli was once again able to mix it with the factory riders, posting the eighth fastest time ahead of Sebastian Porto, Randy de Puniet, Roberto Locatelli and Anthony West. Briton Chaz Davies moved up to 15th in this session.
