Stoner dominates FP3 in Japan

Casey Stoner led the Repsol Honda trio to the top three spots in the third MotoGP practice session at the Grand Prix of Japan.

Casey Stoner posted the fastest lap of the weekend thus far on his third lap in the Saturday morning practice at Motegi, then went on to better that provisional pole setting time with a 1’46.162 despite running off the track shortly beforehand. The Australian’s best time was six-tenths quicker than the leading lap of team mate Dani Pedrosa that put the Spaniard in the top slot on Friday. An impressive penultimate lap by Andrea Dovizioso ranked the Italian second, 0.139s behind Stoner and 0.128s ahead of Pedrosa.

The fourth Factory Honda of Marco Simoncelli ranked fourth in the outing, the Italian taking his San Carlo Honda Gresini machine around to post a best time of 1’46.592, ahead of the Yamaha Factory Racing duo of Jorge Lorenzo and Ben Spies, both of whom managed to keep within a second of Stoner’s time. The last man to ride within that one second mark however, was Ducati Team’s Valentino Rossi, whose time of 1’47.161 was an improvement of eight-tenths on his previous day’s time to put him seventh in the field.

Álvaro Bautista (Rizla Suzuki) made significant progress to post the eighth quickest time, ahead of Nicky Hayden (Ducati Team) and Randy de Puniet (Pramac Racing) who completed the top ten.

Wild card entry Shinichi Ito (Honda Racing Team) crashed while entering turn 3, the Japanese rider was unhurt though the incident hindered his progress and left him the only rider in the field that was not able to improve upon his previous day’s time.
