Stoner narrows title hunt down to three

14 points clear at the head of the World Championship classification, Casey Stoner believes that the 2007 MotoGP title hunt is a three-rider affair- as he explained yesterday at an Autoshow in Barcelona.

"Unless there is a surprise arrival on the scene, the championship is going to be between three riders," stated the winner of four races so far this year at his visit to Alfa Romeo's stand in the Spanish city.

The Gran Premi Cinzano de Catalunya saw all three of the classification leaders on the podium, with Stoner finishing less than seven hundredths of a second ahead of Valentino Rossi and Dani Pedrosa.

"Pedrosa was the home rider, and for us at Ducati a podium would have been a good result," commented Stoner. "But somehow we managed to win, and it was even more exciting because it came right at the finish."

Stoner will be hoping for more of the same form next week at Donington Park, where he last year took fourth in his rookie season.
