2006 Istanbul FP2 MotoGP results

A few surprises in the second free practice session. Nicky makes it to the top of the list with some to spare, but still a way off of last year's pole. Stoner and Melandri are fast again, but Pedrosa has taken a leap forward. Conversely, Rossi has taken a bit of a nosedive. I suspect they were playing with settings. Hopkins has put on a good show, with 8th place, and Tamada is more or less where you might expect him, though the Kawaskis are a long way down the order. A special mention for Ellison, who took nearly a second and a half off his time this morning.
