SUPERB STONER FASTEST AT LAGUNA,CAPIROSSI FINDS A GOOD DIRECTION

World Championship leader Casey Stoner continued his impressive performance at sun-baked Laguna Seca this afternoon, upping the pace aboard his Ducati Desmosedici GP7 to lap three tenths inside the lap record and once again set the practice pace. Team-mate Loris Capirossi meanwhile continued working on the set-up of his GP7 and is confident of a good race pace on Sunday.

CASEY STONER, fastest, 1m 22.997s

"It's not too bad so far - we tried a different rear this afternoon and we've already done over race distance on the front. The new surface is better than last year out of the Corkscrew but it's worse everywhere else, but it's the same for everyone so we've just got to make the best of it."

LORIS CAPIROSSI, 9th fastest, 1m 23.912s

"This afternoon we tried two very different set-ups, one like we used at the Sachsenring, the other like we used before Germany. The Sachsenring set-up works better here, so we are focusing on that and working at improving my feeling. If we can keep going in this direction tomorrow, I am confident I can have a good race on Sunday."
