2013 Jerez Moto2 FP2 Result: Redding Fastest; Rabat Lurking

Briton Scott Redding grabbed the top spot in Moto2 qualifying Friday but his grip on number one is anything but firm. Esteve Rabat finished just .037 seconds behind and more importantly, still holds the fastest time from FP1 of 1'43.227. Takaaki Nakagami took third to round out an all-Kalex top three. COTA winner Nicolas Terol finished FP2 in sixth place, half a second adrift.


2013 Jerez MotoGP FP2 Result: Lorenzo Fastest; Crutchlow On His Heels

World Champion Jorge Lorenzo dominated FP2 in hot conditions at Jerez Friday, setting the fast time early and holding the top spot for most of the session. But it wasn't for lack of trying by the others as the top five riders finished separated only by three-tenths of a second. Cal Crutchlow, nearly mirroring his performance at tests here earlier in the year, set the second-fastest time with Dani Pedrosa in third as the top Honda. Valentino Rossi (fourth) and Marc Marquez (fifth) finished only three-tenths back. Stephan Bradl crashed out with more than five minutes remaining. Both Hector Barbera (FTR) and Aleix Espargaro (ART) put CRT bikes in front of the factory Ducatis of Nicky Hayden and Andrea Dovizioso.


2013 Jerez Moto3 FP2 Result: Folger Rises to the Top

Jonas Folger beat the best FP1 time by nearly a full second to top the FP2 timesheets with a lap of 1'47.660. Alex Rins (second) and Maverick Vinales (third) clocked well within a second of Folger as practice wrapped up for the day for Moto3. A power failure in the pits midway through practice forced teams to use starting-grid tire warmers until power was restored toward the end of the session. Luis Salom, fast man in FP1, finished fourth, seven-tenths out. 


2013 Jerez Moto2 FP1 Result: Rabat Out Front But Redding Closes In

Spaniard Esteve Rabat finished Moto2 FP1 at 1'43.227, nearly three-tenths clear of the field. Rival Scott Redding slotted into second and Pol Espargaro, who was mid-pack early, came on strong at the end for third. Former MotoGP race winner and Moto2 champion Toni Elias climbed into the fifth spot, just behind Jordi Torres who was the only Suter rider in the top six. Note: Rabat's time would have put him 22nd on the MotoGP FP1 timesheet, ahead of three CRT riders.


2013 Jerez MotoGP FP1 Result: Lorenzo Nips Pedrosa; Rossi Third

Jorge Lorenzo, on his final lap of the first Jerez free practice, nipped Honda's Dani Pedrosa by .003 for the top spot. Pedrosa, who led most of the session, was relegated to second. Valentino Rossi finished third, a little less than three-tenths off the pace. Cal Crutchlow, who held a top-three spot for most of FP1, finished fourth and COTA winner Marc Marquez came in at fifth, nearly eight-tenths from the top time. Actually, fifth marked a dramatic improvement for the rookie who appeared to struggle early in practice. None of the riders managed to reach Crutchlow's top time from the test here earlier in the year of 1'39.511. Expect times to continue to drop in the warming conditions.


2013 Jerez Moto3 FP1 Result: Salom Sails Clear

Luis Salom waited until the end to show his hand and it was a winner with a time of 1'48.443 -- two-and-a-half tenths in front of second-place Jonas Folger. Niccolo Antonelli filled out the top three. Perhaps the big surprise of FP1 was Finnish rider Niklas Ajo who led most of the session, eventually putting his KTM into fourth on the timesheet. Overall, times were quick Friday. By the middle of the first practice session, the top 13 riders all had eclipsed the previous lap record of 1'49.760 set last year by Romano Fenati (who placed 16th in today's first practice).

2013 COTA MotoGP Warm Up Result: Pedrosa Quickest; Marquez Fourth

Dani Pedrosa set the quickest time in morning warm up with pole-sitting teammate Marc Marquez fourth fastest. Tech 3's Cal Crutchlow's lapped second-quickest and Jorge Lorenzo put his Yamaha into third place. Pedrosa's 2'04.341 would have been good for fifth in yesterday's qualifying. Valentino Rossi lapped two-tenths quicker than he did in qualifying. Note: Karel Abraham won't be racing today after suffering a broken collarbone in a crash in QP1.

2013 COTA MotoGP FP4 Result: Who Can Stop Marc?

Dani Pedrosa's place at the top of the timesheets was short-lived as teammate Marc Marquez dropped into the 2'03s and rose to the top of the timesheets, making it appear as if it Sunday will be a race for second. Pedrosa was four-tenths back of his teammate and a very unhappy World Champion Jorge Lorenzo was another five-tenths back -- nearly a full second off Marquez's time heading into QP2.
