2010 Sachsenring MotoGP FP2 Result - Lorenzo Refinds Form On Drying Track

After a mediocre start at the Sachsenring, Jorge Lorenzo rediscovered his form this morning, setting the fastest time of the morning's FP2 session at the Sachsenring at the very end of practice. The Fiat Yamaha rider had dominated for much of the session, with Marlboro Ducati's Casey Stoner his only real challenger. Stoner ended the session in 2nd, over a tenth behind.

Valentino Rossi's miraculous recovery continues apace, the Fiat Yamaha rider ending the morning session in 3rd, four tenths behind his teammate, but ahead of yesterday's fastest man, Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa. Pedrosa sneaked ahead of LCR Honda's Randy de Puniet, the Frenchman continuing to impress on the satellite Honda, finishing ahead of the second factory bike of Andrea Dovizioso.
