MotoGP: Stoner fastest in Laguna Free Practice two

Sweltering heat but Bridgestone and Ducati are on top

CASEY Stoner once again topped the Laguna Seca time sheets in the second Free Practice.

Macro Melandri was second fastest on his Honda and John Hopkins was third, just edging out Yamaha's Colin Edwards.

Dani Pedrosa lacked pace in the first session but improved in the second and was fifth fastest, just one spot ahead of Rossi.

Last year's champ, Nicky Hayden, was 8th fastest.

Chaz Davies was last place in the second session. The young Brit is in at the deep end, this being his first MotoGP ride. Davies is standing in for Hofmann who injured himself in an early session crash yesterday.
