MotoGP »

Free practice times (combined) - Mugello.

This morning's first session was held on a drying track, but the weather took a turn for the worse this afternoon - with rain pouring down throughout the second hour.

As a result, all except Colin Edwards set their fastest Friday lap times during the morning session, with Chris Vermeulen quickest of all in the much wetter second hour.

500GP race winner Tady Okada has returned as a wild-card this weekend, to give the pneumatic-valve Honda engine its MotoGP debut.

Okada and Shinya Nakano both walked away from fast accidents during the afternoon session...

And as much as people hate the bashing...stoner is a complete p**k the way he went on one at guintoli for 'getting in his way' The track was dangerous enough on the edges...with puddles and the white lines obviously...but no stoner still thinks people should be well out of his way, if on the track at all. I'm sorry but this is getting too much, is there anyone left in the field he hasnt shook his head at or kicked out at? I thought he was ok, but his temper and manner on the track is awful, someone needs to give the lad a good slap n make him realise that there are 18 other riders on that track.

I will sure give him time...time is always the same for everyone. spending it being constantly angry and grumpy is a waste. Remember that Rossi has and is the happiest and most fun out there.. smiles even when he loses and is genuinely happy for the skill of others: watch the podium from Le Mans and his attitude to Lorenzo.. Stoner's and Rossi's mentality have 0% in common..its kinda so obvious
