Andrea Dovizioso leads Free Practice 1 for the Italian MotoGP ahead of Ducati wild-card Michele Pirro.

Valentino Rossi was on track for the first time since suffering chest and stomach injuries in last week's motocross training accident.

Sylvain Guintoli is again replacing injured rookie Alex Rins at Suzuki, while Ducati test rider Michele Pirro is making his first wild-card appearance of the season.

The stiffer front tyre construction is making its 2017 debut this weekend.

Mugello has the fastest straight on the calendar, with Andrea Iannone setting an official top speed record of 220.5mph/354.9km/h for Ducati in last year's race...
