Jerez MotoGP: Pedrosa leads wet second practice

Repsol Honda rider Dani Pedrosa set the fastest time during a wet free practice 2 at Jerez today. Ducati rider Valentino Rossi was the early pace setter, with a best time of 1'51.440, but was unable to hold off Spaniard Pedrosa in the later stages of the session. Winner of last year's wet Jerez race Jorge Lorenzo set the third fastest time...

I'll let you into a little secret.... Rain "levelling the field" only occurs when someone other than Rossi does well... Derrrrr...... ;)

Rain Rain Please Stay....

LOL.... Feckin' Fanboy Fever!!!

News Flash... Rossi faster than Stoner at Jerez on Ducati, Rossi has Duke sorted at last!!! Errrr oh no sorry..... it was wet. ??? Or has he become the greatest jet ski developer in history??? Fancy that a big red jet ski. Must belong to the same yacht club as Pedrosa, Rossi probably had a special hull flown in from Michelin for that session but he just couldn't pip the mighty midget yachtsman. ???

But then wait a minute? Stoner doesn't need traction control, he is the KING of slide and THE fastest rider on the planet! So if it is wet and "slippery" surely no one could be faster than him??? Errrr oh no sorry..........there are 3 riders in front of him. ???

I don't know what is going on here Fanboys, defenders, and detractors. I would love it to piss down all weekend though. Not that I am in his "club" but I would find it incredibly amusing if Rossi won in the rain this weekend just to watch you lot go mental.

Couldn't be bothered to read it all but I can just imagine the hours wasted by the ValenCasey StoneRossi kids club as they throw "e" sticks and stones at eachother. Ha ha ha ha ................ Oh the joy!

Go Pasini !!! ??? Hee hee hee ???

Don't understand why so few riders went out in the first session. The forecast for the whole of the day on sunday is for thunderstorms. So you can pretty much assume that the conditions for the race will be very wet. As such you'd think the riders would be going out no matter how wet it gets. If it ends up being a power boat race on sunday it would be nice if they'd had some practice before hand. Didn't look that wet when the fast laps were going down.

FP1 was Neither wet nor dry enough to gather any useful information... The conditions were greasy and too risky to go out in... (according to various journalists)

exact moaner

with only 4 sets of wets for the entire weekend, it's obvious why most riders put in very few laps in FP1 and FP2. They need to save a set each for the last 5 minutes of qualifying and for the race. The big problem is that neither of the first 2 sessions were full on wet at all points of the track or at all times,, so the only thing that FP1 and FP2 were good for was thrashing a few sets of tires, and the times couldn't be more irrelevant. no one pushed at all. Too bad the turds at Crash read so much into the 2nd place time of Rossi,, yet they failed to mention that it was @ 2 seconds slower than Piro/CRT at FP1 in similar conditions. Equally inept is Tomi M at twowheelsblog using the words "Pedrosa Dominates" .. What happened to real journalism. 
 

Much to do about nothing.

If it highlights anything

Maybe they need to increase the number of set of wets per meeting. If it is greasy rather than damp ,it is gonna feck the tyres, hence the lack of activity on the track. Not brillant for the paying public that will have paid good money to get there ,tickets to watch practice.:mad::mad:

More tyres most set up time and less chance of diasasters in the races too.
