Pedrosa looking unstoppable at Misano

Dani PedrosaDani Pedrosa topped yet another session of this weekend's MotoGP round at Misano by setting the fastest time in Sunday morning's pre-race warm-up.

Honda's Pedrosa and Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo repeated their qualifying form to take the first two slots, with Andrea Dovizioso showing well on the second works Honda in third.

Valentino Rossi was fourth, with Casey Stoner fifth following his crash in qualifying yesterday. Randy de Puniet continued his impressive form after returning from a broken leg in sixth spot.

Ben Spies, Loris Capirossi, Aleix Espargaro and Hector Barbera completed the top 10. Nicky Hayden's struggles continued as he was only 12th, after qualifying 14th yesterday.

Marco Melandri was the only faller in the session, dropping his Gresini Honda towards the end, but he walked away unhurt.
