Stoner targets four straight wins at Misano

The Australian has been in superb form of late and heads to Misano having won there in 2007.
Casey Stoner will continue in his quest to put the 2011 MotoGP World Championship further from the grasp of Jorge Lorenzo at Misano, the Australian bidding to make it four wins on the trot.

The Repsol Honda rider was in imperious form throughout the Indianapolis Grand Prix weekend as he romped to a third straight victory, while Lorenzo's distant fourth means the gap between them has swelled to 44 points with six grands prix remaining.

With no break between races, Stoner will look to pick up where he left off at Misano, a circuit where he has had mixed results in the past, including a win in 2007, but a retirement in 2008 and a fifth place for Ducati in 2010.

Nonetheless, while Stoner considers Lorenzo and his team-mate Dani Pedrosa to be a significant threat, he is confident he will leave the San Marino race with another strong result.

"I'm looking forward to going to San Marino and seeing how competitive we can be. In 2007 and 2008 we were fast there, then I missed 2009 and last year we struggled a little so we've had a mixed bag of results. It's a nice track, I like the two corners off the end of the back straight, they're a lot of fun and very fast.

“I know Dani and Jorge will be very fast there, but I'm coming off the back of three wins and in a strong position in the Championship so we'll see what we can do and I'm confident we can get a good result.”
