Australian world champion Casey Stoner will be bidding for his fifth win in six years when he lines up in the Qatar Grand Prix on Monday morning (AEST). The26 year-old has a real liking for the Losail circuit having won there in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011. Last year he finished 3.44 seconds ahead of Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo in the season opening event, with Repsol Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa back in third.
With Stoner being so dominant in the Gulf State, only one other rider has tasted success in the circuit, with Valentino Rossi winning here in 2005, 2006 and 2010.
