Stoner reacts to second successive pole start

Stoner reacts to second successive pole start

Looking good in all conditions thus far at the bwin.com British Grand Prix, World Champion Casey Stoner is confident of a good result in the eighth race of 2008 on Sunday.

Casey Stoner, the fastest man in the dry on Friday, splashed his way to pole position for the second time in as many GPs on Saturday and the Australian is ready to charge into battle whatever the weather.

Casey Stoner - pole

`We´ve always had a good setting with this bike for wet conditions but we managed to find a little bit extra today and I was able to get into a fast and consistent rhythm with a good feeling. Obviously I´m happy to have set this pace in the wet and to be on pole position by such a margin but the most pleasing aspect for us so far this weekend has been the bike´s performance in the dry yesterday. The work we did at Barcelona has made it a lot easier to ride, it´s a lot smoother and that gave me confidence to push it in wet conditions, which is important. You can never trust the weather forecast here so we´ll just sleep on it and see what we get in the morning. Whatever it is I´m confident.´
