Jerez November Tests - Day 2

Testing continues today at Jerez, where the weather gods are looking much more kindly upon MotoGP than yesterday, when much of the session was ruined by rain. Testing didn't get underway properly until lunchtime, due to parts of the track still being fairly damp from yesterday's rain, but by 2pm, everyone was out and riding. Motogp.com released the top 10 times as of 2pm, which are shown below. These times are not really representative of the state of play, with most of the riders having only put in some 10 laps or so. By the end of today, most will have put in 40 or 50, with varying set-ups and on different tires, which should give us a clearer picture of the relative standings within the paddock.

The top 10, as of 2pm:
1. Tady Okada, HRC - 1:41.857 (13 laps)
2. John Hopkins, Rizla Suzuki - 1:41.932 (10)
3. Valentino Rossi, Yamaha Factory Racing - 1:42.381 (15)
4. Dani Pedrosa, Repsol Honda - 1:42.794 (15)
5. Colin Edwards, Yamaha Factory Racing - 1:43.079 (6)
6. Loris Capirossi, Ducati Marlboro - 1:43.100 (8)
7. Casey Stoner, Ducati Marlboro - 1:43.150 (14)
8. Chris Vermeulen, Rizla Suzuki - 1:43.650 (9)
9. Marco Melandri, Gresini Honda - 1:43.861 (18)
10. Shinya Nakano, Konica Minolta Honda - 1:43.930 (14)
