Stoner and Rossi inseparable in last four races

Stoner and Rossi inseparable in last four races

Casey Stoner and Valentino Rossi have been virtually inseparable this season, with the title race especially hotting up in the last four rounds.

Casey Stoner and Valentino Rossi have been virtually inseparable this season, with the title race especially hotting up in the last four rounds. The two World Championship leaders are quickly converting the 2007 season into a head-to-head battle, and have taken exactly the same amount of points 83- from the most recent quartet of Grands Prix.

The two riders have both taken two victories, a second place and a fourth position from the showdowns in Italy, Catalunya, Great Britain and the Netherlands, with previous results the only determining factor in Stoners current 21 point advantage. Stoners lowest finish of fifth, combined with Rossis comparatively dismal placings at Istanbul and Le Mans, can be seen as the critical missed opportunities of the season so far for the five-time former MotoGP World Champion.

With nine races remaining, there are surely plenty more twists in the story to come, as Rossi emphasised after his spectacular victory at Assen last Saturday.

Stoner has shown that he is a fast rider, and that he can ride well in any circumstances; wet or dry. But there are a lot of races remaining in the season nine- and anything can happen, said the Italian.
