Lorenzo heads Aragón morning warm-up

Lorenzo heads Aragón morning warm-up

Under sunny skies in Spain it was Yamaha Factory Racing’s Jorge Lorenzo who went fastest in warm-up for the Gran Premio Iveco de Aragón ahead of Ben Spies and Dani Pedrosa.

A time of 1.49’838 was just about enough for Lorenzo to keep his teammate at bay, with the American less than two tenths behind. Repsol Honda Team’s Dani Pedrosa left it until his last lap to jump up the timesheet, ultimately placing his RC213V in third.

Monster Yamaha Tech 3’s Andrea Dovizioso had one of his best sessions all weekend, looking much more comfortable in the warmer conditions in fourth. His teammate and front-row starter Cal Crutchlow completed the top five. Ducati Team’s Valentino Rossi ended the morning in ninth, whilst top CTR spot went to Power Electronics Aspar’s Randy de Puniet. Pramac Racing Team’s Héctor Barberá was the only crasher in the session, fortunately walking away unscathed.

Many of the riders will have been evaluating tyre choice for the race this afternoon, yet will ultimately have to wait and see how much the ambient and track temperature increases in the next hours.
