2007 Istanbul FP1 Qualifying Times - Day 1

As expected, the day dawned cool and bright at Istanbul, making for a session that saw little action until the end. Because of the cold conditions, most of the riders chose to run relatively few laps, hoping to conserve tires for a bigger choice on Sunday, and because there was little they could learn from the cold morning session. Colin Edwards' fastest time was nearly 5 seconds slower than Toni Elias' record lap set during the race last year.

With so few laps set this morning, this afternoon's session, when conditions are expected to be much closer to the race conditions on Sunday, should be very busy indeed, with the teams frantically searching for a good setup and a tire which will work on race day.
