Le Mans Moto GP Free Practice Of MotoGP Riders In Photos 2016 Day Two

This Le Mans Moto GP MONSTER ENERGY GRAND PRIX DE FRANCE qualifying free practice starts took place under a sun, but with quite low temperatures (14 ° C in the air, 17 on the Le Mans track) causing high Chronos – in the window of 1’34 – but still far removed from the race lap record signed by Valentino ROSSI last year in 1’32.879 and the absolute record set by Mark Marquez in 2014 – 1’32.042. Dani Pedrosa informally approached to join Rossi at Yamaha, started the first free tests of MotoGP Grand Prix France 2016, with the fastest time at Le Mans circuit Bugatti, on which he won in 2013 ahead of Cal Crutchlow and Marc Marquez.

The official Honda was faster at 0.044 sec than the winner of the Le Mans Moto GP France 2015 Jorge Lorenzo, pursued by Marc Marquez. Andrea Dovizioso places his Ducati behind the three leading Spanish drivers and at front of the Yamaha of Valentino Rossi. Benefiting from more favorable track conditions that at morning, Jorge Lorenzo (Yamaha) took advantage of the second free practice session (FP2), ahead of Andrea Iannone (Ducati) and Marc Marquez (Honda) at 1’32.830, what is on 50 hundredths already faster, that the fastest lap achieved by Rossi last year. The Mallorcan left far behind his pursuers, Andrea Iannone and Marc Marquez on his Honda, equipped with three pairs of ailerons tested already at MotoGP Jerez 2016. Pol Espargaro and Andrea Dovizioso completed the top 5, ahead of Vinales, Pedrosa, and Barbera. Dani Pedrosa (Honda) leader in that morning on free practice session slipped to eighth place, behind Maverick Viñales (Suzuki), but ahead of Hector Barbera (Ducati Avintia Racing). Tenth in free practice on Moto GP Standings, Valentino Rossi appears on more than one second behind of the reference time posted by a team-mate. Note also falls of Loris Baz, Scott Redding, and Cal Crutchlow, hopefully without serious injury.
