2010 Mugello MotoGP FP2 Result - Lorenzo Fastest, Rossi Crashes Badly

Jorge Lorenzo was fastest in this morning's free practice session, after an eventful and action-packed session. The Spaniard dominated the second half of the session, eventually putting in a scorching lap three quarters of a second under Casey Stoner's fastest race lap from 2008. Lorenzo finished the session ahead of a pair of Repsol Hondas, Andrea Dovizioso edging out his teammate Dani Pedrosa.

But the big news was in 4th place: Valentino Rossi had started the session fast, and was posting impressive times before suffering a huge highside crash at the Biondetti chicane. The Italian was left clutching his ankle, and was taken to the Clinica Mobile with a suspected fractured right tibia (see separate news story). As 11:30 am local time, there is no news on whether he will be fit to race on Sunday.
