Stoner heads warm-up at Phillip Island

Alvaro Bautista was seventh for Honda Gresini, with Abraham the fastest Ducati in eighth, but over two-seconds from Stoner. Factory rider Nicky Hayden took ninth, just ahead of top CRT rider Randy de Puniet (Aspar), with Rossi left in twelfth place.

Like Stoner, Rossi has also taken five successive premier-class wins at Phillip Island, from 2001-2005.

Not helped by the fall, local rider McLaren, drafted into the Avintia Blusens squad in place of the injured Yonny Hernandez, missed his last chance to lap within the 107% time.

Lorenzo's team-mate Ben Spies is out for the rest of the season following shoulder surgery to repair damage sustained in last Sunday's Sepang fall.

Getting within 107% of Stoners time was not going to be easy, but McLaren did easily get within 107% of everyone else's time. That ought to count for something when you're on a CRT.
