2012 Catalunya MotoGP Test Times At 4pm: Dovizioso Takes A Big Lead

Andrea Dovizioso sits atop the timesheets for the post-race test at Barcelona with comfortable lead over the Hondas of Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa, and the only rider to get into the 1'41s so far this session. After his monster crash in the morning, leaving him bruised and missing bits of skin, but otherwise OK, Crutchlow waited until after lunchtime to hit the track again. The crash has not slowed him much, he is within three tenths of the factory Yamahas. Karel Abraham is now also out on track, after sitting out much of the morning.
