2006 Istanbul FP1 MotoGP results

The two winners from last year lead the first session, with Rossi close on their tails. Capirossi is adapting quickly, but needs more time on the track. Nicky Hayden is where he should be, and Colin Edwards has decided to show up. Good showing by the American. Pedrosa down in 8th is slightly disappointing, though I don't think anyone would have called it that before the season started.

Most of the rest are were you might expect them, though Tamada has made a jump forward. But can he keep it up through the next session?
