2012 IRTA MotoGP Jerez Test Day 3 Times, 2pm: Lorenzo Leads Repsol Riders

After yesterday's miserable conditions, the weather at Jerez on Sunday is nearly perfect. The sun is out, the wind has dropped, and the track is plenty warm. The teams are all very busy trying to catch up after losing most of a day yesterday, and the track is very busy, as is the circuit, with over 5,000 fans turning out for the test.

At 2pm, Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo is the fastest man on track, leading the Repsol Hondas of Dani Pedrosa and Casey Stoner, while Ben Spies completes the Yamaha/Honda sandwich. San Carlo Gresini Honda's Alvaro Bautista is the best of the satellite riders, just a fraction ahead of Cal Crutchlow on the Monster Tech 3 Yamaha. Nicky Hayden leads the factory Ducatis, Hayden 1.3 behind Lorenzo, teammate Valentino Rossi 1.5 slower, though both have closed the gap compared to Friday. Randy de Puniet is the first of the CRT bikes, though today, he is slower than all of the satellite bikes, and nearly two and a half seconds behind Lorenzo.

Improvements

Good to see the Ducatis improving relative to the lead, if just a little.
