Damp session, with wet tyres, but all lap times faster than this morning.

Valentino Rossi is making an early MotoGP comeback, just 22 days after breaking his right tibia and fibula in an enduro training accident.

Yamaha WorldSBK star Michael van der Mark is on standby should Rossi be unable to continue for the full weekend.
