The black clouds hanging above the Bugatti Circuit at Le Mans held off for the opening two free practice sessions of the French Grand Prix today, allowing Alvaro Bautista to work on his dry set-up and set the ninth fastest time of the day. The Spaniard worked on improving the bike under braking and acceleration but still has plenty of room for improvement tomorrow. This is a new circuit for Bryan Staring and his cause wasn't helped by electronic problems that he and the team will have to work on tomorrow.

Niccol√≤ Antonelli and Lorenzo Baldassarri made a positive start to the French Grand Prix at Le Mans today. The Italian youngsters made the most of fair weather conditions to set some strong lap times and raise hopes ahead of tomorrow's qualifying practice.
