Friday practice (1) - Aragon MotoGP

Full Friday free practice times (1) from the Aragon MotoGP, round 14 of 18.
Session delayed by an oil spill in Moto3 practice.

When the session did start, a wet but drying track kept most riders in the pits.

Injured reigning MotoGP champion Casey Stoner is again replaced by World Superbike star Jonathan Rea this weekend.

@some1 it's not Bridgestone it's the stupid rules. The drying track clearly required intermediates, but the rules don't allow for inters only full wets and slicks. Either you go out on slicks and risk injury and a wrecked bike, or you go out on wets and trash one of the sets of wets you're allowed for the weekend. Either the GPC need to add inters to the tyre allocation for next year or at least increase the wet tyre allocation.
