2009 Estoril MotoGP Qualifying Practice Result - The Untouchable Untouchable

Results of the qualifying practice for the MotoGP class at Estoril:

Jorge Lorenzo continued his utter domination of practice at Estoril by putting his Fiat Yamaha on pole position for tomorrow's race. Lorenzo got off to a slow start, but was soon firmly in charge of the session, occasionally ceding the top spot to the other members of the Fantastic Four, but always taking it back again soon afterwards. In the end, Lorenzo ended up just over a quarter of a second faster than his team mate Valentino Rossi, who had found a little more pace but not enough to match Lorenzo's. Casey Stoner showed he is still in form by taking the 3rd and final spot on the front row, forcing Dani Pedrosa into 4th spot. Colin Edwards starts from 5th, and is clearly the best of the rest.
