Final MotoGP test times - Mugello

MotoGP lap times as of 6pm, at the end of Monday's post-race test session at Mugello.
Following Sunday's Italian MotoGP, a post-race test session was held back at the Mugello circuit on Monday.

Repsol Honda riders Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa debuted a 'completely new' RC213V, Ducati tried engine and chassis upgrades and Colin Edwards rode several different CRT machines as Forward Racing ponders a switch from Suter-BMW.

Yamaha's Ben Spies was not testing due to the sickness that he struggled with on Sunday. The PBM, Speed Master and Ioda CRTs were also not present.

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

Valentino Rossi, Dani Pedrosa and Stefan Bradl fell in the afternoon, but were unhurt.

Ducati are expected to stay at Mugello and continue testing for the next three days.

Round ten of the 2012 MotoGP World Championship takes place at Laguna Seca from July 27-29.

Rossi did 23 laps and that's it, he did the same time he did in the race. He never rode the bike again. That doesn't look good, maybe he hated the bike so much because they didn't lisen to him: "sweet power delivery". Looks like the "new engine" is the same abrupt & wild engine and the frame doesn't represent any advantage at all. What a familiar face coming from Ducati who's head is Preziosi, a dude that doesn't want to change anything rather than pilots.
