Philip Island MotoGP: Casey Stoner thrilled with flying start in Phillip Island

Casey Stoner was thrilled after he made a dream start in his quest to win a sixth successive home race at Phillip Island today. The 27-year-old defied a lack of strength and mobility in the right ankle he first injured in Indianapolis to finish almost 0.9s ahead of Repsol Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa. Stoner, who is making his final Phillip Island appearance...

8 of his 10 flying laps in FP2 were faster than Dani's next fastest... add another 5 from the morning session & this guy's already done half a race at a pace no-one else can match with their fastest FP2 lap!

Roll on qualifying!

Bloody Hell

That's some performance in both sessions

As we've seen before though, FP1 and 2 aren't always a yardstick for qualifying or the race and the others best hope ithey're not on this occassion either

 

Now, where's Maid Marion who, just a few days ago, was quite vocal in his opinion of Stoner's ability to control a Motogp bike with an injured ankle and calling for the FIM and Dorna to ban him for the rest of the season on the grounds of safety to other riders

and it's very quiet on here today...

amazing.....

Performance from Stoner so far and it's hard to see him being beaten this weekend.
Nice way to end his career with a home win!
Makes you wonder though when he said his ankle was actually getting worse so one would now presume his ankle is not an issue so far this weekend? Can he last race distance? I would imagine he will overcome any pain just for the satisfaction of the win.
Hope Pedrosa keeps the championship alive on Sunday and we have an exciting showdown in Valencia.
Go Dani go....

Last two paragraphs of the article explain it

You've been doubling up with maid marion too much lately, his inability to see what's written in an article is starting to rub off......

sorry bulto

but like your posts I just skipped through the bits I wanted to read.
Glad his ankle is not bothering him so much.
It is just a bit of a surprise to see him ride so well after what he said before the start of the weekend but we all know every rider tells the truth and the press never lie.(or should that be the other way round?)

Wow

Caught the highlights of FP2 tonight and there were some gret slow-mos of riders around turn 3 with Pedrosa letting it hang out as well.

But there was one shot of Stoner where he had both wheels on the kerb with the bike sideways and you just think How? The bike came off the kerb sideways and slid more on the track and you could see how he just lifted himself out of the seat, shifted his weight on the pegs to the balls of his feet which must hurt, weighted himself to the inside and just let the bike carry on doing what it was doing, shifting his weight constantly to counterbalance until it settled and then he dropped back onto the seat. Pure dirtbike that bit and just stunning to watch with the slow-mo. Both wheels on the inside kerb and drifting ffs...

And he's just done it again in FP3, regular 1:29 and 1:30 laps and over 1s on Lorenzo in 2nd. RdP is just ahead of Bradl, nearly half a second ahead of Rossi and almost 1s ahead of Hayden and Barbera...
