2014 MotoGP Jerez Test Times At 1pm: Marquez Leads Lorenzo And Pedrosa

Testing is in full swing at Jerez, a day after the opening European round of MotoGP. Marc Marquez is fastest, picking up where he left off yesterday, the Spaniard stamping his authority during the test just as he did during the race. He leads Jorge Lorenzo by over six tenths of a second, with Marquez' Repsol Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa another tenth behind the Movistar Yamaha rider. Go&Fun Gresini's Alvaro Bautista is doing well in 4th, leading Valentino Rossi by a narrow margin. The session was briefly red-flagged following a big crash for Andrea Iannone, but the Italian walked away from that unhurt.

There are a number of prominent absentees, first and foremost of which is the Factory Ducati team of Andrea Dovizioso and Cal Crutchlow. The Ducati pairing are scheduled to hold a private test at Mugello instead, a test at which some major upgrades are rumored. Colin Edwards is also absent, still waiting upon a new chassis from the consultants which Forward have brought in to design. In his place is Simone Corsi, one of NGM Forward's riders in Moto2. 

There are a couple of absentees due to illness as well. Nicky Hayden has decided to skip this test, as he is still getting some swelling in his right wrist. Yonny Hernandez had been scheduled to test, but has been taken sick, and so will not ride today.

2014 Jerez MotoGP FP3 Results: Pedrosa Leads Fast Four, While Tornado Returns

Dani Pedrosa led the third session of free practice at Jerez for the MotoGP class, the Repsol Honda rider showing promise at a track he has been so strong at throughout his career. Pedrosa took top slot towards the end of the session, deposing Jorge Lorenzo and pushing the Movistar Yamaha rider down into 2nd. Marc Marquez follows in third, while Valentino Rossi is fourth, though less than a third of a second separates Pedrosa from Rossi.

The name in 5th is a surprise. The reports that Edwards' team boss Giovanni Cuzari was to talk to Edwards about early retirement have fired the Texan up, Edwards posting several fast laps to end the session in 5th, first Open bike, and ahead of his teammate Aleix Espargaro. Stefan Bradl sits between the two Forward Yamahas, while Andrea Dovizioso is in 8th on the factory Ducati, ahead of the Tech 3 Yamahas of Pol Espargaro and Bradley Smith.


2014 Jerez Moto2 FP2: Simeon Sizzles

Belgian rider Xavier Simeon has headed a sun-drenched second Moto2 free practice session at the Jerez circuit in Spain. The Gresini rider ended proceedings ahead of Sandro Cortese and Takaaki Nakagami in second and third positions. While Nakagami would be happy with his return to form Cortese had a highly turbulent session, twice feeling the anger of other riders after riding slowly on the racing line. First Dominique Aegerter kicked out at the German and then Championship leader Esteve Rabat pushed him with his fist whilst gesticulating wildly.

Rabat eventually calmed down and ended the session in fourth place, however he still held the fastest time of the day from the morning's session and looked consistently quicker than any other rider on track. Aegerter also had to regain his composure and went on to post the fifth fastest time. He was followed by his compatriot Thomas Luthi who was ahead of Simone Corsi, Johann Zarco and the German duo of Marcel Schrotter and Jonas Folger completed the top ten. Maverick Vinales Moto2 education continued with a crash early in the session, this severely limited his race simulation time and perhaps signifies a blip in the initial ease with which he took to the intermediate class.
