Here you are alrova.......

The first images of Casey Stoner in full Repsol Honda MotoGP colours were released during a team launch at the Pan Pacific Hotel in KLIA airport on Monday evening.

The last Australian to race for Repsol Honda was MotoGP legend Mick Doohan, who ruled the premier-class from 1994-1998. Stoner admitted it felt special to wear the same colours as his hero and paid tribute to Doohan at the launch.

“It's been a dream of mine to ride in this team and follow in Mick Doohan's footsteps,” said the 2007 world champion, who has moved to Honda's factory team after four seasons at Ducati.

“Even the three-rider [2011] team is going back to Doohan, Criville and Okada days.

“So there's a little bit of history there and hopefully we can all be running up front, pushing each other. I think having two strong team-mates [Pedrosa and Dovizioso] is fabulous.”

“For me [to achieve what Doohan did] will be impossible,” added Stoner, who has a revised helmet design for 2011.

“Number one, I'd have to overcome the same injuries as him. I think that's something people overlook when they compare him with other riders. What he had to overcome to win the championships he did.

“I'm not just saying that because he's a fellow countryman, but because of the career he had and what he had to come back from. Doohan's determination and never-give-up style is what I've tried to follow my whole career. He's been an inspiration for me.” Stoner will ride in Repsol livery during the first MotoGP test of 2011, which starts at the nearby Sepang Circuit tomorrow (Tuesday).

The last time Stoner was on track was during a stunning RC212V debut at Valencia in November, when he was fastest on the final day of testing.

“Valencia was a very exciting time for me, to finally get on the Honda, and it felt very nice from the off,” said Stoner. “Of course, no motorcycle is perfect for every rider, but we couldn't have asked for much more from that first test.

Doohan raced on with a smashed to leg that was nearly amputated and sewn to his healthy leg for a while to promote blood flow.
Stoner took time out for a cold!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
