@ Dave From Eurosport rookie Casey Stoner suffered a double blow during last weekend's German Grand Prix. Not only was the 20-year old advised not to race following a high-speed crash in the pre-race warm-up but race winner Valentino Rossi has also moved to block the Australian joining the Yamaha team.Stoner, who was linked to a move to the factory Yamaha team at the end of last season before joining up with Lucio Cecchinello on a Honda, has again been muted as a possible team-mate to Rossi next season under the wishes of chief engineer Jeremy Burgess.However, despite showing flashes of brilliance this season and the temperament necessary to become a multiple race winner, Valentino Rossi has taken it upon himself to block the move, saying that the Australia would be best served at Honda."I think the best option for Stoner would be to stay where he is," Rossi said at the Sachsenring.
