Casey Stoner eyes more Sepang success

1 of 1

Former world champion Casey Stoner has backed himself to continue his impressive form at the Sepang circuit ahead of this weekend’s Malaysian GP.

The Aussie, who his home race at Phillip Island earlier this month, has won 125 and 250cc races at the Far East venue. And one of his ten wins during a dominant 2007 campaign at the Sepang circuit.

“Stoner was also hugely impressive during a winter testing appearance at the track back in January and he said: “Over the last few rounds we’ve managed to set a good pace in all of the dry practice sessions and struggled a little bit in the wet. We think we found a good wet setting in Australia so unless there’s an unexpected problem that crops up we should be okay for any conditions at Sepang.

“I like the track and I’ve got good memories because I’ve won there in every category – 125cc, 250cc (2004 and 2005) and MotoGP. The track is a good mix, there are some fast corners with a lot of lean angle and some tight ones that aren’t much fun.

“We’ll give our best to finish the season in a positive way, with some good results, although to be honest my mind is on the test at the end of the season at Valencia, when we can start to work on the new Desmosedici”.
