Casey Stoner's imperious reign over the MotoGP class at Qatar suffered the smallest of dents in the final session of free practice at Qatar. The Australian ended up atop the timesheets for the third session in a row, but his advantage had shrunk to just a tenth of a second by the end of FP3. The competition came from his Repsol Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa, the Spaniard even leading FP3 for a large part of the session. Stoner upped his pace at the end of the session to take the top spot.
Stefan Bradl set the fastest time in the final session of practice for the Moto2 class at Qatar, after blasting in a fast lap in the latter stages of FP3. Bradl displaced Marc Marquez, the reigning 125cc champion continuing his seamless transition from the two-stroke singles to the four-stroke fours. Andrea Iannone too the 3rd spot in the sole session for the Moto2 class on Friday, finishing just ahead of Yuki Takahashi.
Nico Terol's dominance of the 125cc class continues apace, putting nearly a second on the field once again with no one else looking remotely like being on the same planet. This time it was Efren Vazquez' turn to lead the chase, the Avant Ajo rider ending up two tenths ahead of Sandro Cortese, who suffered a crash towards the end of the session. Sergio Gadea bagged the 4th fastest time, fractionally behind Cortese.
Casey Stoner continues to dominate in Qatar, setting the fastest time of the weekend on just his second lap out of the pits. The Australian's Repsol Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa is second again, the Spaniard closing the gap by a couple of tenths from yesterday, now under four tenths behind Stoner. Yamaha's Ben Spies breaks up the Repsol party in 3rd, a quarter of a second off Pedrosa, while Andrea Dovizioso put the third orange and black into 4th spot.
Reigning World Champion Jorge Lorenzo set the 5th quickest time, but is just over a tenth off his teammate Ben Spies in 3rd, while Monster Tech 3 Yamaha's Colin Edwards is 6th, a tenth ahead of Marco Simoncelli in 7th. Edwards' teammate Cal Crutchlow's missing fingernail is clearly causing him less pain, the young Briton putting in a promising 8th fastest time, and finishing ahead of the factory Marlboro Ducatis of Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden.
