STONER FASTEST ON FIRST DAY IN QATAR, MELANDRI WORKING ON IMPROVEMENTS

Casey Stoner clocked the fastest time over two sessions of free practice at the GP of Qatar, whilst Marco Melandri made a promising start but was unable to improve as he had hoped.

Not only was Stoner fastest in both sessions, he managed to improve his pace on the second outing by four tenths of a second, despite a notable drop in track temperatures. Melandri also improved but it wasn't enough to hang on to eleventh place on the time sheets after his performance in the opening practice.

Final free practice times
CASEY STONER, fastest: 1'55.442
MARCO MELANDRI, 15th fastest: 1.57.091
