Stoner: Very fast - very happy.

MotoGP rookie Casey Stoner bounced back from his Wednesday fall with a series of consistently quick laps on the third and final day of action at his home Phillip Island circuit, putting the Honda LCR rider within half a second of race tyre pace setter Marco Melandri... despite another trip into a gravel trap.

"I made a lot of good laps and was very consistent today. I felt very happy because I was very fast on my home track," stated Casey. "But when I put on a new tyre unfortunately I slid off into the gravel trap. But I have to say the whole day was quite positive for us."

Stoner finished the test just 0.03secs slower than factory Honda rider Dani Pedrosa - the man who beat him in the 2005 250cc World Championship.

I really like that guy !!
