- Casey Stoner was more than pleased with his third place at the MotoGP Portugal, as he explains. "We had a pretty good start to the race but Dani moved across and I had to hit the brakes and back off," he said. "So after that I was challenging Marco for 3rd position in the first turn and he cut me off which I'm not so happy about. Then in turn 4, he crashed and I lost the tow to Dani and Jorge. I didn't really have a lot of confidence in the first laps with the rear tyre, it didn't seem to want to work so well, especially on the left side. During the race at some point, I felt my back completely lock up on me and I couldn't move for three or four corners, I was struggling to do anything and had no breath. I thought I had to go back to the garage, but thankfully within half a lap it eased up a little, got better and we managed to finish so I'm very happy to stay in 3rd place today."
