Lorenzo close to qualifying pace in Brno warm up

Spanish star Jorge Lorenzo was more than 0.4s faster than Valentino Rossi in the Czech morning run.

Fiat Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo showed his rapid pace again in the MotoGP warm up at the Cardion ab Czech Republic Grand Prix as he lapped one tenth of a second off his own qualifying time from Saturday and was 0.415s ahead of Valentino Rossi, who was second fastest and starts from pole this afternoon.

The third quickest participant in the session, Dani Pedrosa, was nearly a second down on Lorenzo’s pace and will have his work cut out from third on the grid if he is to stay with the Yamaha factory pair in the race.

Colin Edwards and Toni Elías, who both start on the second row, were fourth and fifth respectively having also looked good on Saturday, whilst British Grand Prix winner and fellow row two starter Andrea Dovizioso was tenth in the session.
