Stoner ends the third and final testing in Qatar within the fastest times. This isn’t really much of surprise as Stoner and the Losail circuit have a winning history.

Being top of the time sheets is definitely a psychological blow prior to the start of the MotoGP season 2011. Also the fact that all 3 Repsol Honda Team riders are in the top five shows that they found their right set up for the opening race.

Different to HRC riders the Ducati riders Valentino and Nicky need to improve a lot to find their way into the top 5. But knowing Valentino and his history with the Yamaha Team nobody will question that he will come back during the season.

One thing is for sure and that’s what most riders already said, this year will be very competitive.
