2007 Mugello FP3 Times - Day 2

Though the session started under overcast skies once again, the weather gods held fire over Mugello this morning, allowing the third free practice to take place in dry, if not exactly glorious conditions. And as on Friday morning, it was once again Dani Pedrosa who dominated the morning's session. Pedrosa, who is using an updated chassis here, was consistently faster than the rest of the pack, running 1'50s for most of the session.

Valentino Rossi set the second fastest time, finding decent pace on his last run of the session, the only other man to consistently get into the 1'50 bracket. Rossi edged out Casey Stoner, the Ducati man setting consistent low 1'51s throughout the session. Stoner's Ducati team mate Loris Capirossi set the 4th fastest time, after running mid-pack until the end, while Marco Melandri looked competitive at his home Grand Prix, setting the 5th fastest time on his Gresini Honda.

Alex Barros was 6th with one fast lap early in the session, the first of the Pramac Ducatis, ahead of John Hopkins, who also ran consistently low 1'51 times, and looks to have decent race pace. Tech 3 Yamaha's Makoto Tamada surprised a few people with his 8th fastest time, though his fastest time was set on a single lap at the end of the session, raising the suspicion that he used a Dunlop qualifier for his time. Alex Hofmann was 9th fastest on the other Pramac Ducati, but also set an impressively consistent set of low 1'51s in his last run, while Hopkins' Suzuki team mate Chris Vermeulen was 10th fastest in the dry, after being so impressive in the wet yesterday. Vermeulen was another rider to set a string of low 1'51s during his final run.

Though there looks like being a very close fight for 3rd or 4th, with a group of 5 or 6 capable of running in the low 1'51s, only Dani Pedrosa and Valentino Rossi were capable of running what looks like being the winning race pace, which will be mid 1'50s. Pedrosa in particular was very, very strong, and Rossi will have to pull out all the stops to keep the Spanish challenger in check.

Of course, there's still the weather. The weather looks like it could go either way on Sunday, giving us either a wet race, a dry race, or a bit of both. Either way, it should be interesting.

2007 Le Mans MotoGP FP1 Report - Pedrosa Tops Timesheets

Conditions were cool for the opening session at Le Mans, and although dry, the track took a while to get up to temperature. Early times were fairly slow, but as the session went on, times began to drop.

The biggest surprise has been the revival of Honda, with Dani Pedrosa setting the quickest lap, and running consistently fast laps throughout the session. And to prove it's not just Pedrosa, the Spaniard's team mate Nicky Hayden was 3rd fastest, and Carlos Checa, who always runs well at Le Mans, set the 4th quickest time. This will be a big morale boost to the Honda camp, as the season has been fairly dismal for HRC so far. It looks like Honda may have found some improvements which will help them in France.

The filling in the Repsol sandwich is Valentino Rossi. Rossi also set consistently fast laps, and is looking very strong for the race. Rossi's title rival Casey Stoner set the 5th fastest time, not having as easy a time on his Ducati as in Shanghai, ahead of the man they love to hate, Toni Elias, making it 3 Hondas in the top 6. Elias heads up a pair of Americans, Fiat Yamaha's Colin Edwards and Rizla Suzuki's John Hopkins. Elias' Gresini Honda team mate Marco Melandri makes it 4 Hondas in the top 9, with Alex Barros taking 10th spot on the Pramac d'Antin Ducati.

Once again, the times are very close. 0.438 seconds covers Pedrosa to Melandri in 9th, and Pedrosa and Rossi have nearly 2/10ths on 3rd place man Nicky Hayden. Alex Barros in 10th is the last man to be inside a second, just over 3/4s of a second back from Pedrosa.

Perhaps most interesting is the top speeds. In France, it is not the Ducatis who top the speed charts, but John Hopkins, who is some 4 mph faster than Loris Capirossi on the Marlboro Ducati. Kawasaki's Randy de Puniet is 3rd fastest, ahead of Alex Barros.

Although the conditions were too cool early in the session for the result to be particularly meaningful, it seems that the Hondas may have found some extra speed. This afternoon's session, at temperatures much closer to conditions for the race, will give us a much clearer picture of where people stand.
