Casey Stoner trip to the 2011 MotoGP world championship ladder would be more lightweight. The victory at the Circuit Motorland Aragon on Sunday (18.09.11), makes Repsol Honda rider was able to chase away more than his closest rival who is also defending champion status, Jorge Lorenzo. Until the series to-14, Stoner, who had just offered to-100 victory for the Repsol Honda in the premier class, winning 44 points over Yamaha rider.
Mathematically, the Australian rider position is not yet safe. Because, with the remaining four more series (Japan, Australia, Malaysia, Valencia), Lorenzo still has a chance to catch up because there are a total of 100 points up for grabs.
However, see Stoner domination since the beginning of the 2011 season, it is difficult for the Lorenzo dashed ambitions for the 2007 world champion grabbed the world title for the second time in the arena of MotoGP career. Facts show that the Stoner performed very consistently since qualifying to race.
Except for the second series in Jerez (failed to finish due to brushed with Valentino Rossi), a former Ducati rider has always been on the podium with a total of eight-time winner. He also recorded a nine pole positions.
Now, with performance and supported ciamik the perfect bike, it was difficult for Lorenzo to confronting. Stoner's almost impossible to expect a total failure in the final four series. Only bad luck can dashed hopes Stoner.
Indeed, the work of Stoner to win the crown somewhat more lightweight champion Lorenzo-Lorenzo only a competitor, because Andrea Dovizioso, who is now ranked at three standings, was knocked out after failing to finish in Aragon. With the advantage of 44 points, he did not need all-out in the last four series as it only needs to perform consistently to achieve the numbers. In contrast, Lorenzo claimed to always do.
Yes, Lorenzo had no choice if you want to retain the title. Spanish rider is required to win the last four series, hoping Stoner failed miserably.
However, look at their journey since the beginning of the season, Stoner deserve to be a major favorite. Moreover, he still has one big capital when the race took place on Phillip Island Circuit, Australia, 6 October. It's no secret that Stoner is very tough when appearing in public alone so natural for Australian GP predicted would be hers.
