Casey stated after FP3 yesterday that he was going to try some new settings today. Guess the changes worked :)

Makes me laugh to think of those people in denial who still insist that Stoner cant set up a bike.

I said about half way through last year that Stoner could be even more dominant this year as everyone would be having the 'difficulties' of dealing with new equipment and Stoner had shown he could master that very well.

I think last weekend and so far this weekend have shown that to be true. Both tracks are historically ones Stoner has not done that well on. As for Qatar - does anyone really think that he would have been beaten except for teh arm pump?

That could still happen this race, so its not over by any means, but Stoner is unquestionably the best at the minute. He did four 1:37s (more than anyone else) and TWO 1:36s! Only one lap (his second) was more than a 1:37!

Not a Stoner fan in general but credit where it's due, that was amazing...well done!!

Only thing to do now is wait ten years and watch people call him a talent-less fraud!

True bike people can appreciate talent and determination regardless of who has these traits.

" Both tracks are historically ones Stoner has not done that well on"

Stoner actually won here on 250's I believe, after that he had a satellite, the Ducati, and last year.. well, maybe just getting used to his new toy.
I have a race prediction I'd like to share with you people:
1) Stoner
2) Crutchlow
3) Lorenzo

Hey Ico, what r u smoking man... still hung up at LS08?

DP a better racer? come on... it has been observed that DP's biggest strength is close racing due to his weakness in braking due to his size... Cal? oh man....

well, that's your opinion.. but it would be better to keep that opinion to yourself

@ BoZz

Much as I'd like to agree with you I don't think Cal is looking so comfortable on the hard tyre. I think it will be very hard to dislodge Casey, Dani and JL from the top 3. Then maybe a scrap for P4.
