2011 Silverstone MotoGP FP1 Results: Stoner Dominates From The Off

Casey Stoner has picked up where he left off at Catalunya, dominating the first session of free practice at a surprisingly sunny and dry Silverstone. The Repsol Honda rider led Marco Simoncelli by nearly two thirds of a second, while last year's winner Jorge Lorenzo ended the session in 3rd, a whole second behind Stoner. Nicky Hayden was just a couple of hundredths slower than Lorenzo, with Andrea Dovizioso rounding out the top 5.

should have been working a little harder on that Playstation ;)

Most men have to sort of warm up a little before putting in some fast laps.

Casey is different. He is a bit special isn't he. I like the man.

Go Spies!
