Jorge Lorenzo surprised by Casey Stoner’s home race pace

Jorge Lorenzo might be standing on the brink of his second MotoGP world title, but his hopes of capturing the crown from the top step of the podium seem extremely remote, despite qualifying in second position on the grid at Phillip Island earlier today. The Spaniard has written off his chances of defeating home favourite Casey Stoner after the Australian blitzed...

The master of the Island is the best way to describe Stoner on his home circuit he is too good for the rest of the field just ask his old employers Ducati.

Nothing guaranteed

Must be so close to the limit that a crash is always a possibility

A win isn't a given by any means.

Very true...

... he was one of the few to crash out in QP... a simple mistake... that is racing... if it happened to Dani it's game over... to JL it's game on... Stoner's favourite but it's by no means over.

Can Cal go the distance?

Wonder if Jorge will change his tactics tomorrow. Last few he's been trying to get a gap and hold it, but the Honda seems to have more tyre left in the second half.

No, the last last few he's got his arse kicked and settled for points. The Honda has more tyre left when JL chooses a soft one. Get it bud?

TWO THINGS TO KNOW & APPRECIATE ...

It will be interesting to read the posts on all the various sites next season when Casey Stoner isn't around to put-down, diminish, vilify & abuse ...

There are 2 x things the Casey Stoner haters should know, appreciate & try & remember when they are figuring-out who to hate next: -

(1):- HRC offered Stoner A$15 Million to stay (US$15,526,000.00) - the highest offer they have ever made or paid anybody - including anyone in F1. That's a lot for a guy that allegedly can't really ride, is "mentally weak", complains a lot, can't develop a motorcycle & isn't "marketable, isn't it?

(2):- They - the bike media & people, who think they know GP stuff, make much of and go on about Phillip Island being his "home" circuit. While this IS widely acknowledged as a "real rider's circuit" - and one of the absolute best, where you need big 'cojones to go really fast - Casey Stoner has never ridden it any more frequently than any of his competitors. He left Australia @ 14 to go race in Europe & the UK precisely because he wasn't permitted to road-race at home in Australia.

So endeth another couple of the malicious, vapid & vacuous "myths" that have dogged his career.

Stoner now has 38 x Senior GP Wins, which puts him clear of Mike (The Bike) Hailwood as 4th on the "all-time" list.

Cheers

PS: A couple of guys (OK, quite a few) challenged my assertion last season & before that, that Anthony West is a far, far better rider than his results in Moto2 would indicate - obviously forgetting - or not even knowing of his success in WSS - taking-over Kevin Curtain's R6 when Curtain was injured for a 3rd & several Wins. This on top of his at times stellar performances in 250GP & other Classes on crap bikes.

Well, as I said - after changing chassis & getting input from ex-rider & suspension guru Warren Willing - 'Westie has shown his capability with 2 x 2nds on the trot - in both streaming wet & perfectly dry. I just love saying - "I told you so ..."
