Dovizioso tops Brno warm up

Dovizioso tops Brno warm up

The Repsol Honda rider led the 20-minute Sunday morning session, which was met by a rain shower towards the end.

Andrea Dovizioso (Repsol Honda) set the fastest lap time in the warm up session for the Cardion ab Grand Prix Czech Republic on Sunday morning, in a session which was overcast by the weather conditions. The Italian’s effort of 2’10.135 was 1.682s faster than that of any other rider, as the session started on a track which appeared to be drying out and was then marked by a rain shower at its conclusion.

Pole holder Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda) and Casey Stoner (Ducati Team) were second and third fastest respectively with an identical lap time, whilst Championship leader Jorge Lorenzo (Fiat Yamaha) was fourth. Marco Melandri (San Carlo Honda Gresini Team) and Mika Kallio (Pramac Racing) completed the top six.

Ben Spies (Monster Yamaha Tech 3), who will start from second position on the grid, was 15th with Valentino Rossi (Fiat Yamaha) one place behind the American at just over six seconds off Dovizioso’s pace.

Álvaro Bautista (Rizla Suzuki) was back on track after missing yesterday’s qualifying due to a fall in the second practice session. The Spanish rookie will start the race from 17th position on the grid. Alex de Angelis (Interwetten Honda MotoGP Team), Marco Simoncelli (San Carlo Honda Gresini Team) and Loris Capirossi (Rizla Suzuki) all had minor run offs with no consequences.

The MotoGP race is scheduled to get underway at 2pm local time.
