Despite having an excellent bike, Ducati was lucky to get Stoner. Capirossi was looking like he was ready to become a champion at the end of the year last year (and was probably Ducati's best hope), but this hasn't been his year. Meanwhile Stoner is dominating.
The way he held off Rossi while he was on his rear wheel all day was unbelievable. Rossi just kept coming. But Stoner kept his cool (and took off like a SR-71 Blackbird on the straight). I wonder what would happen if Rossi was on that desmosedici?
With Jorge and the rest of the crop of 250 kids, people will be leaving GP sooner than they think. With the dirt track background many Americans have, which doesn't work with the 800, it'll probably be some of them.
