Stoner anticipates Lorenzo challenge

“I like Silverstone. It's a good track for us and now that it has been resurfaced in the parts where there were more bumps it should be even better. The layout is beautiful and we go there to fight for the podium," said Dovizioso, who just missed out on his second podium of the season last weekend in Catalunya.

"In terms of race pace, in Catalunya we made a step forward compared to Le Mans, where we finished second. In Catalunya we were fourth, as I couldn't make use of the bike's full potential due to tricky track conditions, but we were fast, finishing five seconds behind Casey.

"I'm very motivated to race in UK; in Donington I won my first MotoGP race and last year I took second position at Silverstone, where we raced for the first time. It will be important to work well from the first session and to be focused to get the best set-up.

"I'm sorry to hear that Dani won't race in Silverstone. I wish him a good recovery and I hope he will return soon.”

He is not mentioning Rossi because Rossi is not a championship threat at this point. Even Rossi is talking about the pace of the 'top guys' at the moment, meaning he does not consider himself one of them. Also, I just re-watched the 2007 Catalunya GP - what an awesome race. Certainly debunks the myths about Stoner not being able to battle or that the 2007 Duc was a rocketship that he just had to sit on to win.

Casey is acting the part, proper. You can't criticism his or any others comments. You toads don't understand that most of the time, some uneducated "simulated" moto-journo with the credentials of a recorder asks a sst*upid question and it gets answered. Casey (nor anyone else) "volunteers" these lame answers. Casey isn't moaning or being coy, or anything,, he is answering a "baited" question. Half the time, only part of the answer is quoted. get real!
