2011 Phillip Island MotoGP FP2 Result: Stoner Fastest Again

Casey Stoner once again topped the timesheets during the second session of practice for the MotoGP class at Phillip Island, consolidating his position after the first session of practice, and confirming his dominance at his home circuit. Marco Simoncelli took 2nd spot, the San Carlo Gresini man getting within four tenths of Stoner, and the only other rider to get into the 1'30 bracket. Just as he had done in the morning, Simoncelli suffered a low-speed tumble, in almost the identical spot on the exit of MG Corner. Jorge Lorenzo took the 3rd fastest time, six tenths behind his rival for the title, but his pace probably good enough to at least postpone the pain of losing his championship in Australia.

Lorenzo's Yamaha teammate Ben Spies ended the session in 4th, improving over his morning performance, and was the last man to get within a second of Stoner, Stoner's Repsol Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa finishing just over a second of the Australian. An impressive showing by Hiroshi Aoyama put the Japanese rider up into 6th, while Randy de Puniet was the first of the Ducatis, the Pramac rider ending the session in 7th. The factory Ducatis were well down the order, Nicky Hayden finishing in 11th, while Valentino Rossi ended FP2 in 13th.


2011 Phillip Island MotoGP FP1 Result: Stoner Leads Lorenzo Despite Crashes

Casey Stoner surprised exactly no one during the first session of free practice, setting the fastest time of the session on just his 3rd flying lap. A sign of how hard he was pushing was the fact that he crashed on the following lap, a harmless slide at Honda corner, the slowest turn at the circuit. Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo was 2nd fastest during the session, a quarter of a second behind Stoner but two tenths ahead of 3rd place man Marco Simoncelli. Simoncelli, like Stoner, also crashed in the morning, but like Stoner, the San Carlo Gresini rider walked away unhurt.

Monster Tech 3 Yamaha's Colin Edwards put in a surprisingly strong showing in Australia, setting the 4th fastest time just over a second behind Stoner, but his margin over the people behind was slim. Five hundredths behind Edwards was Repsol Honda's Andrea Dovizioso, another four hundredths slower was his teammate Dani Pedrosa. The optimism of the Marlboro Ducati riders expressed ahead of the weekend was only partially justified: Nicky Hayden posted the 7th fastest time, but was less than a tenth slower than Pedrosa, while Valentino Rossi was nearly half a second slower than Hayden, and ended the session in 12th.
