1pm MotoGP test times - Mugello

MotoGP lap times as of 1pm, during Monday's post-race test session at Mugello.
Following Sunday's Italian MotoGP, a post-race test session is being held back at the Mugello circuit on Monday.

Repsol Honda riders Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa are due to debut a 'completely new' RC213V, Ducati will test engine and chassis upgrades and Colin Edwards is to try several different CRT machines as Forward Racing ponders a switch from Suter-BMW.

Yamaha's Ben Spies is not testing due to the food poisoning that he struggled with on Sunday. The PBM and Speed Master CRTs are not present.

Testing began at 10am and concludes at 6pm, with a lunch break from 1-2pm.

BMW, Aprilia, Kawasaki and Suzuki don't have any prototype GP engines to lease. Suzuki are working on an in line 4 prototype but that's likely to be a full prototype bike if they decide to come back to MotoGP. Why would a factory develop a MotoGP engine without a frame? The ECU and mapping are an indispensable part of being competitive and they'd need to run their engine in races to develop the electronics to the level of being able to compete with the other factories so they'd want an in house frame to eliminate variables. The problem for the CRTs is that they can't run the same level of tuning the WSBK bikes use because they're restricted to 12 engines for an 18 race season, (plus practice and qualifying), whereas the top WSBK teams are using a brand new engine per race.

I wonder why there is no prototype engine leasing available in MotoGP? Why not allows BMW. Aprilia, Kawasaki, Suzuki or other bike makers to lease their prototype engine for privateer teams? CRT is too slow and uncompetitive enough for the MotoGP race.
