Casey Stoner picked up in Motegi where he left off at Aragon, topping the timesheets in the first session of free practice for the MotoGP class at the Japanese circuit. Stoner ended the session ahead of his Repsol Honda teammate Andrea Dovizioso, the Italian clearly set on demonstrating why he deserves to get a factory Honda ride somewhere. Nicky Hayden ended the session in 3rd, the American showing signs of starting to gel with the GP11.1. A tenth of a second behind Hayden, Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa set the 4th fastest time, just edging the reigning world champion Jorge Lorenzo on the factory Yamaha.
