Philip Island MotoGP: Valentino Rossi not surprised at Casey Stoner’s home speed

Valentino Rossi said he wasn’t surprised to see Casey Stoner dominating the opening day of practice for this weekend’s Australian Grand Prix at Phillip Island earlier today. Fears the slow recovering right ankle injury he suffered in Indianapolis might seriously hinder the Aussie in his final appearance at Phillip Island vanished today as Stoner delivered a stunning performance in front of...

PROPER TRACK FOR PROPER RACER`S..

       And he still would be yam-man. 1000cc and just as slow as last year,{800`s},Ducati have really lost  the plot since employing a pair of has-been`s!

Yam...

I hadn't noticed that... FP2 2010 CS 1:31.243, FP2 2012 VR 1:32.030. He's made some great improvements in the 2 years he's had at Ducati*.

Rev - "1000cc and just as slow as last year, 800`s"

So far, here, Casey's 0.5 secs faster on the 1000. FP2 2011 CS 1:30.535... we'll see how it pans out.

*... na, I know, Stoner owns this place... now watch him bin it in the race!

On the quiet Rossi, like the rest of us, knows that caseys injuries are nowhere near as bad as he makes out.. he's the only rider who goes faster if he is on his death bed. What kind of numpty believes that shyte?? See below.. Anybody see any restricted movement as he was hammering it in the turns?? no did you fuck . The kids fine ultra fast at pi as usual, but would like to read a little more about this years title defence from casey which is what the sport is about.. Rossi and Jorge got hammered for losing the title, and the poison dwarfs on eurosport?? I haven't heard them mention Caseys defence all season.. Talk about primadonna.. no rider in history has needed to be moddycoddled.. it's been more than a little embarrassing.. Still has to prove he has true legend status by holding onto the title but clearly knows he hasn't got that in him.. Yamgit - Rossi was also a lot better on the honda than casey has been..

On the quiet... or not so... we all suspected, & many stated, that Rossi's shoulder injury wasn't as bad as he made out... it has proved to have been not holding him back in the slightest. Out of Rossi & Stoner, the big difference is that only one was using it as an excuse for such abysmal performances where the other has gone from strength to strength each weekend.

To be fair..

It's difficult to take anything away from Stoner at Phillip Island..past or present.

Unbeaten since 2007 on every iteration of Ducati, is the stark reality..this is Stoners back yard. Respect is a given.

Hugelean...

Run us through the list of notables Rossi beat during his Honda years - Gibernau, Barros, Ukawa...wow, how he managed to beat them (when he had a better bike..), heaven only knows!

Stoner is competing against Lorenzo in the latter's prime and I think you, me and Rossi all know how hard that is.  Why, it might even cause me to run away from the fight..

You know Stoner won 4 races round PI on the Ducati?  

Never understood why Rossi didnt just copy the 2010 settings last year..
