Mugello MotoGP test times - Lorenzo on top

Following Sunday's Italian MotoGP, a post-race test session is being held back at the Mugello circuit on Monday.

Repsol Honda riders Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa are due to debut a 'completely new' RC213V, Ducati will test engine and chassis upgrades and Colin Edwards is to try several different CRT machines as Forward Racing ponders a switch from Suter-BMW.

Yamaha's Ben Spies is not testing due to the food poisoning that he struggled with on Sunday. The PBM and Speed Master CRTs are not present.

Testing began at 10am and concludes at 6pm, with a lunch break from 1-2pm.
