After reading the following, I was just wondering how much ice mind Stoner is:

"But I looked at the tyre afterwards and it was okay, so next time I know how hard I can push and not to be afraid of this kind of thing and not to be so cautious in the future."

He was teaching us how to not think about title but he seems to be dreaming with it already.

Last race I am sure Stoner was afraid too and create a psychologic nightmare with a non-existent lateral wind feeling and lose the race to his fear. Now, he simply lose the race to his fear again.

The man dominated the sessions and during the race creates an unreal enemy and concedes the race.

Really, to be championship leader is getting up on his head.

The wind feeling in my opinion was just an excuse because Rossi was invincible in Assen, but today i agree the tyres had some issues especially the bridgestones.

If there were no tire problems he would have kept up the pace instead of dropping 3 sec a lap. All the bridgestone riders dropped backwards, except Capirossi, and he had a different tire and looong experience in riding badly worn stones.

I think he just learned that he can push harder, but that wouldn't result in 3 sec better times. Maybe .5 or so.

thanks for the link

interesting read - Capirex did choose a diferent compound than the others and i am wondering if after he read his pit board after rossis departure that he did start thinking about the bigger pic ( maturing rider perhaps ?? ) - we will never really know but i bet capirex was creaming his pants when he went passed him saying rembemer me !!

Stoner begins to feel the stress????
What stress??

He did a good job today, considering his tires weren't optimal.

we all go on about the tyres and the wind and the riders but i think he didnt want to win just so he didnt break the " Pole Jinx " record.

I don't think its stress at all, i think its just an example of the fact that Stoner isn't invincible this year.

Exactly! Plus i think Capirossi really got his head together this weekend, he had a different engine to Casey again and he made a good call on tyres. But Casey did ok (maybe expected more) and i doubt the result will have a long lasting effect, especially knowing how many mistakes Rossi has been making and how he is clearly feeling the stress more!
