Friday practice (2) - Italian MotoGP, Mugello

Full Friday free practice times (2) from the Italian MotoGP at Mugello, round 8 of 18.
Spots of rain for most of the session meant slick tyres were only used in the final five minutes of FP2.

Four riders didn't set a time, and some didn't return after earlier wet tyre laps.

Pramac Ducati's Loris Capirossi is missing his home event after being injured in qualifying for last weekend's Assen round.

Dani Pedrosa is returning to MotoGP action, after missing the last three races due to a broken collarbone.

The Mugello circuit has been resurfaced for 2011.

The situation with rain has its advantages and disadvantages, with some of the advantages applying more to some of the riders than others who may feel more disadvantaged with the rain. Rossi needs dry weather to gain an advantage in setting up the GP11.1 but conversely the advantage of wet weather is good as he has used this advantageously previously when he has perfomed well in situations where it has disadvantaged other riders who have not gained an advantage. Similarly so it will be advantageous for Pedrosa who is disadvantaged by his collar bone injury that has put other riders at an advantage in the championship, however, the disadvantage is the risk of falling with a collar bone injury reducing and advantage he may gain from his honda.

How damn lucky for Rossi, with a bike that desperately need testing time a mixed condition weekend at Assen, two broken bikes at FP1 in Mugello and a wet session at FP2! They must feel like under a curse!
