Final practice for MotoGP's Dutch Grand Prix on Friday morning has been extended to 90 minutes to make up for the track time lost at Assen today.
The second of Thursday's planned pair of 45-minute practice sessions was canceled completely as it proved impossible to clear up a major oil spill on the circuit in time. Moto2 rider Alex Baldolini had spread oil over a large proportion of the Dutch track when he rejoined on a damaged bike after an accident.
Practice three should have run from 10:10 to 10:55 local time tomorrow, but will now start at 9:50 and run to 11:20.
With all three world championship classes unable to run this afternoon, the 125cc field's final session will now be an hour long, with Moto2 getting 65 minutes.
The oil issue came as a double blow to teams because this morning's opening practice sessions had taken place in very wet conditions, with the water on the track exacerbating the problems caused by the oil.
