Without Stoner Honda would not be getting all the good press. And please don't mention the what if Pedrosa and Simoncelli thing. Pedrosa is out every year on his own anyways.

It is not the bike it is STONER.

Great to see the acknowledgements between George and Casey after a thrilling battle for pole. World Champion and Champion elect.
Lets hope the Yahoo's don't mess up the title battle for the only two protaganists at the start and deprive us of a great race.

Would absolutely love to see what time Stoner would set on the Yamaha, the other Honda riders ran way out of talent as that session neared the end.

The Yamaha is clearly the best handling bike by far which would only give Stoner more room to play with.
As it is he can always go past the Honda's threshold with ease after doing it on the Ducati for 4 years.

Sorry Jorge, this guy is the true world champion out there and has proven it through adversity. If Jorge could go to Ducati and do what Stoner could with the same resources I'd be a believer.

I actually think the Yamaha is still the best bike out there too.

Honda better not fall into a hole and relax their development because Stoner makes that Bike go a lot better than it could when ridden by mere mortals.

Pedrosa is no slouch and looks second rate alongside Stoner.

Stoner would get that bloody Suzuki on the front row.

Casey sure seems unstoppable this season.Whenever someone moves the goal posts and sets a quicker time,he just goes out and retakes the lead without appearing to brake into a sweat.Great effort from Jorge though.I thought he was going to clinch pole position with a few minutes to go but Casey was having none of it.Agree with Southerner regarding the mutual admiration Casey and Jorge seem to have for each other.There is a genuine warmth and sportsmanship between the two of them.Nice to see.

to say the yamy has no power to match the honda's is just a blind stab in frustration...how the hell is it so when there is a yamy starting 2nd on the grid!!!the yamy would be on pole if not for stoners incredible talent for speed..you only have to open the eye's a little to get the full picture.
