Jorge Lorenzo tops free practice 1 session of Japanese Grand Prix – MotoGP news
Jorge Lorenzo of Yamaha Factory Racing topped the free practice 1 session of Japanese Grand Prix at the Motegi circuit.
All the riders got the chance to test their settings and set-up their bike therefore it was a delightful practice session after several wet practice sessions.
Jorge Lorenzo completed his fastest lap in 1 minute and 46.558 seconds edging his opponent Dani Pedrosa by a lead of 0.141 seconds and restricting him to the second position. Their bikes marked a clear difference in speed of around 8 km/h with Honda having
the better speed.
The returning rider Casey Stoner made an impressive start in the race however his bike stopped after two bends in the his last lap. His fastest lap was ranked 4th in the FP1 which was completed with a gap of 0.758 seconds from Lorenzo.
Andrea Dovizioso of Monster Yamaha Tech3 was once again able to edge his teammate Cal Crutchlow by making it to the 3rd position in FP1 whereas Crutchlow could only make it to the 6th position. Ben Spies, teammate of Lorenzo managed finishing the race at
the 5th position.
The Ducati riders finished the practice session at 7th and 10th positions, Rossi being 10th. The seven times world champion attained a top speed of 296.9 km/h. Ducati has been working hard to improve the performance of their machine and it seems as if they
are close to their ambition. The fastest speed on the circuit was achieved by Hayden despite having an injured hand. He managed a top speed of 300.2 km/h whereas Rossi’s top speed of the session was the 3rdfastest speed on the circuit. He achieved a top speed
of 296.9 km/h.
The challenging layout of Motegi circuit makes the set-up of the bike challenging because riders have to accelerate and then apply rapid breaks keeping in view the tyre wear out issues therefore it would be hard to speculate who will attain the pole position
for the Japanese GP. During the Race Lorenzo did not had the highest speed with his machine yet he managed leading the FP1 with his skills and completing the sections on circuit, convincingly.
Let’s see who manages to take the pole position tomorrow.
