Casey Stoner dominates Phillip Island practice

Casey Stoner showed why he has not lost a MotoGP race on home soil since 2007 after dominating today’s opening practice sessions at the Phillip Island circuit. In front of a massive Friday crowd congregating ahead of Stoner’s final appearance in Australia, the Repsol Honda brushed aside the pain and lack of movement in his recovering right ankle to blitz the...

Dominates?

It's only FP1-2 but bloody hell... this could cost Dani a whole point in his championship challenge.

I was gonna say Rossi, 2 secs off the pace, but of course he's only 1 second down on the normal aliens.

Well done Cal...

He owns PI no question is a good to watch there, but does anyone really believe he's so badly injured he can hardly walk?? Thank god for Rossi. Still if Casey's fans believe most of the shyte he's come out with over the last few years then they'll believe anything.. His track no doubt but the only reality is that on easily the best bike out there he's been totally hammered this year... No doubt we will have read ad nauseum comments of the ilk 'see how fast casey was at pi he could have won the championship!! ;-)' No he couldn't as wasn't anywhere near as fast as the top two at 11 other races... Ring a bell ducati??

"His track no doubt but the only reality is that on easily the best bike out there "

So we have various threads trashing him for developing the 1000 into a bag of crap & you're saying he's developed it into the best out there... which is it?... all the Honda riders are complaining of chatter the harder they push.

Thank god for Rossi who openly admitted that he played on his shoulder at the start of 2011 to disguise his lack of performance on the Ducati... I couldn't care less if Stoner wheels up on a mobility scooter & then leaps up & jumps on the bike... he's fast... he doesn't need excuses.

"No he couldn't as wasn't anywhere near as fast as the top two at 11 other races"

Hang on... there have been 16 races... he missed 3... so he's been faster than both of them 4 times & one or other 6 times... out of 13 races... if he wins at PI he'll have won 5 which is more than a third of the races he's competed in... by the end of the season he'll have raced 15 times... 15/3 = 5 so he'll have won an equal share of the races he's competed in... if he wins both he'll have won as many as both JL & DP despite being out for 3 weeks. A big but far from impossible "if". Cool... thanks for pointing that out.

huglean rewrite history once again....

Nowhere near as fast as the other two? Lets have a look at the stats before his crash at Indianapolis. He had led 113 laps for the year compared to Danny's 45 and Lorenzo's 99.  He had won 4 races compare to Lorenzo on 5 and Danny's single victory. He had 4 pole positions compard to Danny's 2 and Lorenzo's 3. But of course you want to include the stats after he missed some races and came back injured! because that is the only way Danny's stats compare at all with Stoner's. But if you take the total time Stoner has been on Honda then Danny looks pretty poor indeed. And all of a sudden the Honda is the best bike out there! And Case yis faking the injury and the hours of surgery and the diagnosis given by some of the world's leading surgeons! Get a grip on reality mate. What he did today was nothing short of brilliant. He use the same tyre on his No 1 bike for every lap. That means he was still doing 1:30's after a race length. He then jumps onto his No 2 bike and his second lap on a hard tyre, the only time he tried it all weekend, he gets into the 1.29's. You should be in awe instead of trying to rewrite history.
