Stoner: I feel a little average...

Casey Stoner may have had a reputation for being something of a crasher during his 125 and 250cc days, but it took until round six for the young Australian to make a MotoGP race mistake.

Indeed, fellow Honda rookie Dani Pedrosa fell (in Turkey) before Casey - although when the LCR rider's debut race accident arrived, it did so in spectacular style; the 20-year-old sending his RCV cart-wheeling down the track after falling from a fighting fourth place on lap 9 of 23.

It was a big off and Stoner, although unscathed, went for a precautionary medical check

"I feel a little average," said Casey. "My neck is quite sore but there is no problem. Unfortunately I made a small mistake and the front-end went on a bump. I was a little frustrated by Melandri holding me up - he was very hard on the brakes. But there are lots of positives because I was very competitive here."

Because of the accident, Stoner has now slipped to sixth in the world championship standings equal with a certain Valentino Rossi.
