Casey Stoner will be pulling out all the stops to maintain his World Championship lead after next week's Grand Prix of China, even though it means a few early mornings post-race this season! The Australian was back on track Monday morning at Istanbul Park after his runaway victory in the Grand Prix of Turkey, his second MotoGP win this season.

"It was difficult to get out of bed on Monday after a race like Sunday's, but I want to experience the winning feeling I had in Turkey and Qatar in China, so I have to keep working a bit!" commented Stoner after testing.

Despite suffering a bump on the head, the Australian still took positives from his team's comedown work.

"We did a good job because, finally, we clocked good times in a post-race test!" he commented. "The only bad thing was that I had a stupid crash on a slow corner. I took a little bit of a blow to the head, but I'm sure that it will make me go faster in China!" he joked.
