Sebastian Porto has posted the best time of the first 250cc free practice session at Istanbul, ahead of his Aspar Aprilia team-mate Randy de Puniet, while Alex de Angelis completed an all-Aprilia top 3.

Dani Pedrosa, who successfully defended his 250cc crown by snatching victory from Porto in last week's race at Phillip Island, was fourth fastest, followed by fellow Spaniard and Honda factory colleague Jorge Lorenzo.

Italian veteran Roberto Locatelli was sixth quickest ahead of compatriot Andrea Dovizioso and team-mate Casey Stoner. Honda riders Hiroshi Aoyama and Hector Barbera completed the top 10.
