2012 Brno Post-Race MotoGP Test Times At 4pm: Crutchlow Ahead Of Dovizioso And Lorenzo

Cal Crutchlow is the fastest man of the test so far at Brno, taking over from his Tech 3 teammate at the top of the timesheet. Jorge Lorenzo is 3rd quickest, spending more time this afternoon on the 2012 bike rather than the 2013 prototype, while Loris Capirossi is already ahead of Colin Edwards on the Aprilia ART bike, even though Capirossi is only testing the bikes to check their behavior with the tires. So far, there have been no more crashes, though Cal Crutchlow was forced to abandon a non-functioning bike at the side of the track a short while ago.

Times are Julian Simon's and Mike Di Meglio's, respectively ;-)
edit: my bad, it seems that Hernandez and Silva did test later today, that would make it quite difficult to know who signed the fastest time attributed to the bike.

Times at these tests don't mean too much. You have no idea what they are testing or working on. It's not a race so many are not concerned with lap times.

So only one working on 2013 bike is Dani?

It is more like testing setups than real testing with new parts.

Was most likely on a prototype when he did that lap time.....
