I agree with many people here that Casey is almost unbeatable at Qatar.....but somehow I do not think that the results will be that as easy for him in 2009. Many of the bikes have progressed quite a bit. The Fiat Yam M1 is better that last year, Tech 3 is using somewhat of a 2008 version of the M1 that ran away with the Manufacturers Championship in 08. Suzuki have dramatically turnaround their fortunes in 2009 (based on test results). Honda...err not sure about Honda...but I would not count them out (especially since they seem to have a rocket launcher at the start). If this happens expect Dovi and Danny to be up front. Ducati...what can I say...it looks like a 1 man team. Lets go racing!

Stoner is fastest at riding traction control. And Ducati has the best ssytem. Boring.
Rossi is best at riding a motorcycle.

Do away with the electronics and let see some real riding skills being displayed again. Half of last year was boring.

Stoner deserves more respect while Rossi admires it!... I think Rossi prefers to see him on track instead of out track because Rossi enjoys to compete with strong opponents!...

If ya don't like the fan boy sh1t on here then why come on here & read n post, we don't force you to either read it or add comments, at the end of the day us so called fan boys whatever we joined this forum to have our say if ya don't like it then don't read it.

Stoners comments on the track at Quatar, says it all not really a technical circuit very nice flowing & fast, this is a track in which his bike can stretch its legs.

He still has the fastest bike just, I think that he will win here again this year fairly easily.

Casey will do well & does deserve credit when your fast & always in the first 3 your there on your own merit, the best man will win the WC.

Caseys record at qatar is impresive. The bike and him seem to like this place, so my money is on Stoner this weekend. However, there are 16 more races after that, and a certain #46 that won't quit. Here is hope for mor Laguna Secas!!!!! Let the battles begin!!! :)

I'm a little surprised that there are still alot of people that doubt Stoners ability but you're welcome to your opinion, I think the problems he had last year were more due to the GP8 turning like a school bus rather than Rossi getting in his head, Rossi out raced him in Laguna no argument but it didn't do him any long term psychological damage in fact the lessons he learnt from that race will only do him good. The Jerez test indicates to me tat they've solved the handling issues and right at the moment I'd tip Casey to win the WC
