2010 Estoril MotoGP FP1 Result - Session Lost To Rain

The first session of practice for the MotoGP class was almost completely lost to rain, with only the bravest souls venturing out onto the track. Hiroshi Aoyama was the only rider who actually posted a time, though Aleix Espargaro and Carlos Checa both went out, but they came straight back in again, though Checa did put in an entire lap near the end of the session.

Thunder and lightning added to the festivities, and the wind has picked up even further. It looks like the entire day could be lost to the weather at Estoril.
