Stoner satisfied by solid practice

World Champion Casey Stoner was unfazed by his second-placed finish in practice one and two at the Malaysian GP in Sepang.
Stoner conceded a 0.820 second gap to Repsol Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa in practice two, despite leading at stages and said, overall, he was happy with his preparations.

"Everything went pretty well today, we're not too far off the pace with race tyres, we did over a race distance and were pretty happy with the lap times we were doing on the soft tyre," Stoner said.

Having wrapped up the title in his native Australia last Sunday, the remaining two MotoGP events will be more about testing for next season with Stoner less concerned with results.

"We then went to the hard tyre and found it a little better and more consistent, we'll have to see what the conditions are like tomorrow but so far we're pretty pleased and the bike feels okay," he said.

"We have some areas to improve on, we need to get the bike turning a little better into the corners, better braking stability and a little more rear grip in the traction area. If we can improve these then we'll move a step closer."
