2011 Motegi MotoGP FP3 Result: Stoner Leads Another Honda Clean Sweep

Casey Stoner topped the third session of free practice for the MotoGP class at Motegi, leading yet another Honda clean sweep of the top of the timesheets. The order of the Repsol Hondas was changed once again, Stoner leading from Andrea Doviziosio in 2nd, with Dani Pedrosa in 3rd. Marco Simoncell took the 4th spot once again, the San Carlo Gresini following at a polite distance to behind the Repsols, and two tenths ahead of the factory Yamahas. Jorge Lorenzo was the first of the Yamahas, leading a now greatly covered Ben Spies, but Lorenzo still lags six tenths behind his title rival Stoner. Valentino Rossi made another little bit more progress on the Marlboro Ducati, finally getting within a second of the Hondas, and ending the session in 7th.
