Qatar Grand Prix to be held tomorrow
DOHA: The first race of Moto GP season will be held here tomorrow.

In the practice session held at the Losail International Circuit, Casey Stoner (Ducati) has a proven pedigree of success.

The Ducati Marlboro rider was satisfied with his performance in the first practice in Qatar, but has underlined the need to continue to work hard as the weekend progresses.

The Losail International Circuit is a track at which Casey Stoner has a proven pedigree of success, and the Australian is going for a fourth successive win in the season opener at the venue this weekend.

On Friday evening he started the Commercialbank Grand Prix of Qatar weekend in solid style, topping Free Practice 1 with the fastest time by over half a second from Jorge Lorenzo.

Stoner’s lap of 1’55.500 on his Desmosedici GP10 of the Ducati Marlboro team was a fraction over a tenth of a second off the time which saw him top the Official Test three weeks earlier, and displayed an immediate comfort with his bike at the start of the opening round of the 2010 season.

Jorge Lorenzo of Spain won the second place while his teammate Valentino Rossi of Italy finished third.
