Stoner comments on Jerez crash

With things not going quite according to plan for the Ducati Marlboro team and 2007 World Champion Casey Stoner on day two at Jerez, the 22 year-old Australian explained the circumstances of the crash which has left him with suspected ligament damage to his left shoulder.

Having topped the timesheet on day one and with more than 20 laps under his belt as the second fastest rider at 2pm on Wednesday afternoon, Stoner fell heavily at turn three of the famous Spanish circuit, resulting in a trip to Clinica Mobile – where staff put his left arm in a sling, before he returned to his hotel to rest.

"Everything was going very well today, we were focusing on tyre testing as we had planned, when I crashed at turn three," Stoner explained. "I hit the ground pretty heavily with my left shoulder. Straight away the injury was really painful, so I went to Clinica Mobile where they fitted me with a sling and strapped the shoulder."

"We will wait and see how I feel tomorrow but I think it's going to be difficult to continue this test."
