2012 Sepang MotoGP FP3 Result: Pedrosa Edges Lorenzo In The Dry

Dani Pedrosa continues to lead the way at Sepang, topping the second session of free practice for the MotoGP class. Jorge Lorenzo was the only man capable of getting anywhere near the Repsol Honda man, Lorenzo within two tenths of Pedrosa. Pedrosa's Repsol Honda teammate ended the session in 3rd, Casey Stoner clearly more comfortable with his damaged anke at Sepang than he was at Motegi last week. Stoner just held off Andrea Dovizioso, the Monster Tech 3 Yamaha man just three thousandths of a second behind Stoner, and half a second off Pedrosa's time. Dovizioso headed up the remaining Yamahas, Cal Crutchlow taking 5th while Ben Spies took 6th, Spies being the first man to be over a second off the pace of Pedrosa.
