Ducati top the time sheets once again at German MotoGP

CASEY Stoner, the current MotoGP Championship leader was fastest throughout the opening practice session for this weekend's German MotoGP.

Amazingly, no-one got to within half-a-second of Stoner's fastest time, proving that he's got what it takes, even on the twisty circuits.

The Ducati rider led the way for virtually the entire hour - steadily improving on his initial 1:23.6 benchmark to reach 1:23.058 on his final run.

The opposition was always between six tenths and a full second adrift of Stoner.

Valentino Rossi could only manage a best time of 1:24.30 good enough for eighth place, while his team mate Colin Edwards managed the fourth best time.
