2007 Sachsenring FP1 Times - Day 1

The Sachsenring circuit shouldn't suit the Ducati. Unfortunately, no one remembered to tell Casey Stoner, as already in the first session, he has shattered the lap record by over 2/10ths of a second. Stoner was consistently faster than everyone else in the session. Interesting to see Carlos Checa in 2nd spot, he was another surprise, being so fast on a bog stock Honda satellite bike. And an even bigger surprise is to see Sylvain Guintoli, on Dunlop tires, in 9th spot, ahead of Dani Pedrosa down in 11th.

Nicky Hayden isn't as far forward as last time out at Assen, and Valentino Rossi is loitering down in 8th spot, while team mate Colin Edwards is up in 4th.

The weekend is already looking interesting, after just one session.
