Stoner and Capirossi test at Le Mans, prepare for Mugello

He's been racking up the wins this year, and there's been a corresponding increase in Mr Stoner's female fan following

After Sunday’s race at the Le Mans circuit, where Rizla Suzuki rider Chris Vermeulen took his first MotoGP victory, the Ducati team went back to testing on Monday, to prepare for the Italian Grand Prix at Mugello, which will take place on Sunday, the 3rd of June.

Says Stoner, ‘We focused on testing tyres, found several that we like and gave the Bridgestone technicians our feedback so that we can make the best possible preparations for Mugello, which is one of my favourite racetracks.’ Capirossi adds, ‘We tried several fronts and rears and we found out some very interesting things. We also worked on engine mapping and traction control, making useful steps forward that make me confident for Mugello. I love Mugello because it suits my riding style a lot better than Le Mans.’

Ingrid Capirossi, Loris' wife, has promised him a special treat if he wins at Mugello

Of course, we suppose The Doctor won’t be taking things lying down and would be going all out in preparing for the Italian grand prix. All the Italian riders – Capirossi, Rossi and Melandri – would want to win at Mugello, while Stoner will be making things as tough as possible for them as usual. Should be fun…
