Casey Stoner had the best ever start to his 2008 season with a brilliant ride to win the opening round at Qatar. This race, the first to be ridden under floodlights, gave the promise of an exciting series for the year. Stoner, who slipped down to about sixth in the first couple of laps started to make ground as soon as his tyres came up to their best after which he was untouchable. Valentino Rossi, despite leading at one stage early on, had a very disappointing race to finish behind Stoner, Lorenzo, Pedrosa and Dovizioso. MotoGP newbie James Toseland finished a very creditable sixth followed by his team-mate Colin Edwards.


What are the odds on Casey Stoner retaining his World Champion title? can Valentino Rossi make a comeback? is Jorge Lorenzo or Danny Pedrosa Casey's biggest threat? We will just have to wait and see.
