Dani Pedrosa took second and after a difficult qualifying, he now has an excellent race pace and was just 0.

151s from Lorenzo.
Casey Stoner came in third, while Randy de Puniet slipped back to sixth but he’s second on this afternoon’s starting grid.

Ben Spies took fourth the same position, the same as his qualifying position and he was a little more than five tenths slower than Lorenzo and was followed by Andrea Dovizioso.
Colin Edwards moved up the chart this morning to take seventh, while Aleix Espargaro came in eighth.
Nicky Hayden took a big step backwards and finished in ninth.
Marco Simoncelli closed out the top ten.
