Dani Pedrosa rode a start-to-finish victory at Mugello on Sunday as he took his maiden win of the 2010 campaign at the Gran Premio d’Italia TIM. The Spaniard, who had only converted three of his previous 14 premier class pole positions into wins prior to this race, never looked like relinquishing the lead he held from Turn 1 of the opening lap and crossed the finish line 4.014s clear of the rest of the field. World Championship leader Jorge Lorenzo (Fiat Yamaha) took second place to extend his lead at the top of the standings, ahead of third-placed Andrea Dovizioso (Repsol Honda) who gave the home crowd a podium to cheer after Valentino Rossi was ruled out of the race on Saturday following his crash in practice. Casey Stoner took fourth as he beat Marco Melandri and Randy de Puniet in a last-lap dash. Dovizioso and Ben Spies (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) had rapid starts from the second row and the Italian was up to third before the end of the opening lap as the pair pushed through on Stoner (Ducati Marlboro). Marco Simoncelli (San Carlo Honda Gresini) experienced a run-off as he pushed for position early on. Melandri (San Carlo Honda Gresini) was riding hard as he edged his way up to sixth having started from 14th on the grid, and Pedrosa’s pace was undoubted as he set a new circuit record at the front on lap five. Nicky Hayden (Ducati Marlboro) suffered disappointment when the front of his Ducati Desmosedici GP10 folded as he went through the downhill Turn 12 on the same lap. Just past the halfway point of the race Pedrosa’s lead had stretched to 7.309s and his fluid rhythm was maintained as he kept edging away. Lorenzo and Dovizioso were more closely matched, and much further back positions four to six remained open as Melandri, De Puniet and Stoner exchanged blows, with Spies not out of the chase either. Mika Kallio (Pramac Racing) unfortunately crashed out to bring a difficult weekend, affected by a lingering shoulder problem, to an end. Pedrosa’s win became more secure as the final laps counted down, and it was left to Lorenzo and Dovizioso to decide the remaining podium spots. The Fiat Yamaha rider opened up a slender advantage that he did not surrender for the remainder of the race. The final lap delivered a great display in the fight for fourth as Stoner went through on both Melandri (fifth) and De Puniet (sixth) to finish ahead of the pair, whilst up front Pedrosa crossed the line first with Lorenzo and Dovizioso following. Spies finished seventh in his first race at the circuit, with another rookie impressing in the shape of Aleix Espargaró (Pramac Racing) who took eighth. Simoncelli had recovered from his earlier mistake in time to take ninth, with Loris Capirossi (Rizla Suzuki) tenth. Lorenzo now has 90 points at the top of the Championship, with Pedrosa second on 65. The absent Rossi is third on 61, with Dovizioso’s podium taking him to 58 in fourth.
Iannone is the winner in Moto2 and Marquez in 125.

Dani Pedrosa will start the 2010 Gran Premio d’Italia TIM from pole position at Mugello after a superb late lap in qualifying pushed him to the front of the grid. Securing his second pole of the season – his 15th in the premier class – with a time of 1’48.819 on the 23rd of his 24 laps, Pedrosa beat Jorge Lorenzo to the top spot by 0.177s. The current World Championship standings leader had taken prime position with ten minutes of the session remaining, becoming the first rider of the weekend to get under the 1’49” barrier by four-thousandths of a second, but Pedrosa’s effort means Lorenzo will go for his third straight win of the campaign from second spot. Joining the Spanish duo on the front row will be Casey Stoner after the Ducati Marlboro man found a more secure base on his bike which allowed him to qualify well, 0.613s off Pedrosa’s pace. His team-mate Nicky Hayden will lead the second row after taking fourth on the timesheet, with Colin Edwards of the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 team and LCR Honda rider Randy de Puniet both enjoying positive sessions as they took fifth and sixth places respectively. Ben Spies (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) will start his first MotoGP race at Mugello from seventh place after an impressive weekend of learning the layout, and Andrea Dovizioso (Repsol Honda) will also be on the third row for his home race. Aleix Espargaró (Pramac Racing) continues to advance well on his satellite Ducati and he took ninth spot. Another rookie in Hiroshi Aoyama (Interwetten Honda MotoGP) will also be pleased with his efforts after he placed inside the top ten. A brace of Italian riders followed in Marco Simoncelli (San Carlo Honda Gresini Team) and Loris Capirossi (Rizla Suzuki), with Héctor Barberá (Páginas Amarillas Aspar) and Marco Melandri (San Carlo Honda Gresini Team) next. Mika Kallio (Pramac Racing) and Álvaro Bautista (Rizla Suzuki) continued to feel the strains of injuries as they came in 15th and 16th respectively, with a notable absence from the session Valentino Rossi. The reigning World Champion was taken to hospital earlier in the day after a crash in the morning practice, and will have an operation this afternoon on a fractured right tibia. Rossi will stay out opf the track for several months. In Moto2 Iannone is the poleman, while the German Cortese is the fastest in 125.

Valentino Rossi laid down an opening warning to the rest of the MotoGP field by setting the fastest time in the first practice at Mugello. The Italian is going for his eighth premier class win at the circuit this weekend, and was almost four-tenths of a second faster than his team-mate and Championship rival Jorge Lorenzo. Rossi and Lorenzo established themselves at the forefront of the timesheet early on and Rossi continually improved his time as the session reached its climax. Inside the final ten minutes he finally broke the 1’50” barrier, setting a hot lap of 1’49.751. Ending the first practice at 0.369s further back in second place was Championship leader Lorenzo, with Loris Capirossi (Rizla Suzuki) pushing up into third with a late surge that left him 0.608s off the pace of his fellow Italian’s top marker. Capirossi then experienced a fall pushing hard through San Donato as his session ended a minute or two earlier than anticipated. Colin Edwards (Monster Yamaha Tech3) enjoyed a good opening session and was fourth fastest, just over a second off Rossi, with Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda) the highest-placing Honda at just a thousandth of a second behind Edwards. Ben Spies impressed on his first MotoGP outing on the track by registering the sixth best time, just over two-tenths off Pedrosa. Casey Stoner, who will be looking to pull on the inspiration of last season’s race win at the circuit after his difficult opening to the 2010 campaign, had the worst possible start to the hour-long practice when he experienced a run-off at Turn 15. The Australian had to take his Desmosedici GP10 down into the gravel to avoid hitting the fence, and eventually placed seventh in the session as he completed 15 laps, the fewest of the field. Andrea Dovizioso (Repsol Honda), Nicky Hayden (Ducati Marlboro) and Héctor Barberá (Páginas Amarillas Aspar) all set top-ten times as well, the rookie running off at Bucine early on just moments after Stoner had, and without consequence. Rizla Suzuki rookie Álvaro Bautista made his return after sitting out the last race at Le Mans due to his recovering collarbone, and was clearly still feeling some discomfort with a best time just over 5.5s off that of Rossi.In Moto2 the fastest is Alex De Angelisand in 125 Pol Espargarò.
