This weekend the Moto GP teams and riders are at the Estoril circuit for the Portuguese Grand Prix and the amazing Jorge Lorenzo is on pole position, Friday practice session was the first time that the MotoGP rookie had ridden his Fiat Yamaha on the Portuguese circuit, but his speed and riding style were out of this world. He had a narrow escape early in the qualifying session, when he squeezed past a slower rider, Chris Vermeulen. Lorenzo claims he is not feeling under any pressure to win the race on Sunday, but it is looking more and more likely and now only a question of time for his first victory after already claiming a third and second place on the podium.
The winner of the last race at Jerez, Dani Pedrosa, has taken the second position on the grid only 0.233 seconds, slower than Lorenzo. Pedrosa is currently leading the 2008 World Championship
Valentino Rossi, is back on the front row of the grid by securing third place and was absolutely beaming at his success after having been in the top four all weekend.
In fourth place is the teammate of Pedrosa, Nicky Hayden on the second Repsol Honda, who claimed he was blocked on his fast lap. He was followed by the two Tech-3 Yamaha riders, Colin Edwards and James Toseland on their first outing with the new pneumatic-valve engines.
In a superb seventh place was another rookie, Andrea Dovizioso with Randy de Puniet right behind him.
The reigning World Champion, Casey Stoner was the second best Bridgestone runner but still could only manage ninth place on the grid.
John Hopkins was in tenth place after hoping for a top five place this weekend on the Kawasaki.
Loris Capirossi was in a surprising twelfth spot after he had a fast low-side fall, which saw his bike cartwheeling across the gravel.
