Casey Stoner demolishes competition in Qatar

User Rating: / 0
Casey Stoner tonight announced another season of domination, as he demolished his competitors in last part of the race, when he set string of record laps. However, it did not seem that way in first few laps, which were led by Dani Pedrosa, who had fantastic start. In opening stages, stoner was buried behind bunch of Yamahas, looking like being in trouble. On the other hand, Rossi seemed like man on the mission, as he started overtaking his competitors one by one, soon getting into the lead. But, soon things get turned around...

Casey Stoner clawed his way to the top after he managed to get into the rhythm, with Rossi being unable to follow him. However, there was another rider able to follow Stoner, at least in the middle of the race, and that was rookie, Jorge Lorenzo. Casey Stoner then decided that it was time to check-out, and set string of record laps and made gap of more than 4 seconds at the end of the race. Jorge Lorenzo made fantastic success by staying in second place on his first ever MotoGP race, showing potential of the real Champion.

Dani Pedrosa was first man to get in front of Rossi, who lost his initial charge and started loosing places. Pedrosa ended race in 3rd place, which is great result considering that he is still recovering from injuries. Another rookie that shown full potential tonight was Andrea Dovizioso, who also managed to overtake Rossi in closing stages of the race and get 4th position in his debut race.

Rossi eventually finished race in 5th place, probably with significant impact on the confidence. Races that follow will show to us is this end of Rossi era, as new, young forces are comming.

Another rookie, James Toseland, proved that new riders are way to improve MotoGP, as he finished just behind Valentino Rossi. Colin Edwards was last Yamaha rider in 7th place, one second behind his team-mate. Loris Capirossi defended colors of Suzuki in 8th place. Randy de Puniet was 9th, and Nicky Hayden completed top 10 finishers in Losail today.
