Casey Stoner is setting his sights on claiming a second consecutive Aragon Grand Prix victory at Motorland Aragon having taken time out to recover from a 'hectic schedule'.
Stoner lost some of his advantage at the top of the MotoGP World Championship standings after finishing third at Misano, the Australian complaining of feeling tired having 'put in a lot more effort' at the preceding Brno and Indianapolis rounds.
Nonetheless, the two-week break between Misano and Aragon has given time for Stoner to fully recover, the Repsol Honda rider eager to repeat his win from last year's inaugural Aragon Grand Prix.
"I've managed to rest since the hard race in Misano, where I was totally worn out. The hectic schedule we follow had drained me completely and I had no energy, nothing left to give, so I've enjoyed relaxing this past week and getting back to some training. The Aragon track is ok, it's not one of my favourite circuits, I feel it could be a little faster.
We ran well there last year, mainly due to the fact we took a big step in the set up on the bike. This year we arrive there with a totally different bike so we have a lot of things to learn in FP1, getting the gearbox set up right and a few other things in general.
“It will be interesting to go there on the Honda, Dani was competitive there last year and I think we can work well there also, and expect a good result. We'll get there and see what we can do.”
