MotoGP Valencia: FP1 results

Stoner leads Pedrosa and Rossi in the opening practice session

IN a wet morning session Casey Stoner ended practice at the top of the timesheets ahead of Dani Pedrosa and Valentino Rossi.

The MotoGP riders lapped a wet-to-drying track for the first practice session of the 2011 season finale, with many wearing tributes to Marco Simoncelli.

Loris Capirossi's Pramac Ducati is running with Simoncelli's number 58 and Hiroshi Aoyama's Gresini Honda was unbranded, featuring a message to his fallen team-mate instead.
