I hope Lorenzo stuffs Stoner personally I cant get myself to like Stoner regardless of how brilliant a rider he is. Lorenzo I'm not keen on either really but would rather see him on the top step with Yamaha beating the might of Honda. Go Cal would love to see him podium for the brit supporters out there!!!!!!!

So far this year, Stoner and Lorenzo each have one win, but neither of the wins is a clear one---in Qatar things went wrong for Stoner, and in Jerez the weather made set up and tyre choice a bit of a lottery.

The Jerez weather was a bit of a shame, because Jerez was probably Lorenzo's best chance to show he can get a crushing win.

On to Estoril. Lorenzo won it 2008, 9 and 10 and came second (behind Pedrosa) 2011. Stoner has had much worse results, including the gravel a couple of years ago. So this is a chance (or, if you prefer, the pressure is on) for Lorenzo to win, preferably lights to flag.

After this, there are a bunch of tracks where Stoner has gone well, so, psychologically, the positions will be reversed.

lets hope its a dry race and practise.look forward to seeing if cal can get in amongst the front 3 this time.this is the first of a few tracks coming up where i think he has a real chance of a podium.

@danny: Racing in the top level like moto gp surely even when u already have the best bike but you still need more.. Always hungry to better and better if you want to aim the top. All riders like that too I think
