‘Cheeky’ Casey Stoner boosted by Jerez speed

Casey Stoner denied his late attack to reach the summit of the timesheets in yesterday’s Jerez test was a ploy to score one last psychological blow before he commences the defence of his MotoGP world title in Qatar next month. Only a few minutes of the pre-season campaign remained when Stoner powered his Repsol Honda RC213V to the top of the...

Ban cheeky

Although how Valentino Rossi would cope with the ban remains to be seen.

As arrogant as dictating the speed as when you feel like it is, it's also my favourite trait in a racer. That supreme confidence to be able to turn up, tune in and drop out as and when you feel like it is the what every racer wants and not many get. 

A confident Casey Stoner versus a confident Jorge Lorenzo should make good tv and it will be down to whoever cracks first.

He denied that it wasn't a ploy? Are you saying that he said it was a ploy or do you think you should reword that first paragraph?

I agree Jollyboy...

I was confused by the artilce... it wasn't a ploy but it was cheeky, planned & intentional? Stoner doesn't say it wasn't a ploy... why would he? They're racers... they like to end out a session on top.

THE place to be.

          Every racer want`s to be top of the pile,unless their " sandbagging " ,{ as if }, but only one can do it. It`s pretty much alway`s Casey,whatever bike he`s on,the big difference now,ofcourse,is that he`s with a team that listen`s and doesn`t begrudge spending a few Euro`s to get thing`s done.  Now that his old team is listening and spending shed load`s even a saint would wanna rub their nose`s in it. And he`s certainly doing that quite brilliantly.  And providing no-one knock`s him off this year,{ and injures him }, this year will go the same way as last. No worries mate.

Can you see the Grim, Jorge?

Jorge is happier than ever with the Yamaha's pre-season performance, and it looks like adding 200cc has done nothing to damage the great handling that has been the strength of that brand since Rossi and Jeremy came on board.

Honda on the other hand are struggling to get the balance right, although there are signs that the chatter problem is fixable .... if they get their preferred tyre.

And yet on a track that Casey often struggles with, he did a mini-simulation (10 laps) at a pace that even Jorge could not match.  Finding himself at the end of the day with a tyre or two spare, he did what he calls a cheeky qualifying run and knocked Jorge off the top rung.  I've no doubt that wasn't the plan at the start of the day, but give a racer a target and they just can't help themselves!

So it would appear that Yamaha will have to get the setup spot-on at every circuit if they want to change the rider order from Jerez.  Either that or rely upon kamikaze Valentino to take out Casey a couple of times.

WosiDog,Here's what a real expert has to say


"To determine 'flying laps' we count only those laps completed at normal race pace, eliminating all 'out laps,' 'in laps' and

'discarded laps' (when a rider shuts off to avoid traffic or to get another rider out of his slipstream).

The true dominance of Stoner's race pace is seen in the fact that of the 41 flying laps that he completed, 23 were in the sub

1'40s, a percentage of 56%. No one else was even close. Pedrosa with seven of 41, managed 17.1% of his laps in the sweet

times and Lorenzo at 10 of 59 was virtually tied with his fellow countryman's pace."
