Can Rossi Beat Stoner Again? | MotoGP Qatar

Rossi Needs Strategy to Stop Stoner.

The start of the MotoGP season in Qatar also sees the launch of a new edition of the MotoGP Fantasy League, where you can find out once and for all just how much you know about premier class racing.

There is still time to make your picks for the Commercialbank Grand Prix of Qatar, and this weekend you can also match your hunch against that of MotoGP Legend Angel Nieto, who spoke to on Sunday afternoon.

"Stoner is very strong, but Rossi is very close and Lorenzo could get there," analysed the Spaniard from inside the Losail International Circuit paddock, before indicating that a ‘Laguna Seca-esque’ strategy from Rossi would be needed to tame Stoner and prevent an Australian victory.

"Rossi needs to use a tactic to stop Stoner from escaping, because if he goes away from the start it will be hard to stop him. For the podium I think they will both be there, and also Lorenzo if he pushes very hard."
