Friday practice times (2) - Qatar MotoGP

Full Friday free practice times (2) from the Qatar MotoGP, round 1 of the 2011 world championship.
The rest of Alvaro Bautista's Qatar weekend is in doubt after the only Suzuki rider on the 2011 grid suffered a big fall with nine minutes to go.

Bautista was seen grasping his left thigh after the accident and had to be carried from the track on a stretcher.

Dani Pedrosa led most of the session, until Stoner moved in front with three minutes remaining.

This was the third and final free practice session of the extended four-night race weekend. Qualifying is on Saturday, followed by warm-up and the race on Sunday.

Good effort from Cal too.Just .1 of a secomd behind Rossi despite "someone" claiming yesterday that he is not fast enough to be in Motogp! And with the tip of his finger ground away! Bloody well done mate.

Stoner crazy fast, it looks like he is just chilling and waiting for someone to have a better lap and then he goes and bam, puts an even faster one. I feel sorry for Nicky, according to Vito he is using the flexi package in both of his bikes, basically he is doing VRs testing, I don't see NH being as happy as before, it may pay dividends in the long run but for now he is the test mule for VR. Sucks
