US MotoGP, Laguna Seca - Free practice (3)

Free practice times (3) from the US MotoGP at Laguna Seca, round 9 of 18.
As on Friday, Dani Pedrosa chose to sit out the morning practice session and return this afternoon. However that means he gave up the chance to claim a place in Qualifying 1.

The top ten riders after FP3 (combined times) will receive direct access to the second and final part of this afternoon's qualifying session.

Title contenders Pedrosa and Jorge Lorenzo are both returning after being injured during practice for last weekend's German round.

Andrea Iannone has been ruled out after dislocating his shoulder at the Sachsenring and is not replaced. Iannone's long-injured Pramac Ducati team-mate Ben Spies is being replaced by Moto2 rider Alex de Angelis.

American Blake Young was due to make his second wild-card appearance of the year with Attack Performance Racing, but withdrew after heavy damage to the bike on Friday.
