Really interesting reading casey has a great attitude to his racing "I think the best thing you can be as a rider is admitting where you're weaker and working on those areas rather than just blaming other things and blaming your equipment. " a lot of people on here say he moans but he knows what is going on and it good to hear him explain what happens in a race

. .this interview felt like a good insight into Caseys attitude on track. He metes out a critical self-analysis on his performances and is quite clearly his own biggest critic!

Its actually really interesting to read this as most people seem to think he blames everyone else but himself when things go pear shaped but he comes across as a straight talking, no-bull sh!t, determined individual.

An admirable, and understandable attitude for a career in ascension!!

@ eminusx
You think somebody at Crash went to the trouble of retyping a transcript they received from HRC? Honda's own internal PR team conducted the interview and distributed the transcript. Motogp.com has the same transcript with the same "errors". Clearly, they just put an MP3 recorder in front of Stoner and then transcribed the interview verbatim and, as you're no doubt aware, when you talk you often cut sentences short or repeat words.

Great interview and explanations from Casey.Everything based on good old common sense which is apparently not common anymore.
I would hazzard a guess and say that were the same questions posed to every rider in GP, the responses would be very similar.
I loved the one about using other rider's data being a waste of time and effort.
Its like having a size 10 boot/foot and demanding your opposite number's size boot because HE 'bends' the ball better with a size 8.:)
