OH MY GOD!!! This is some ******* april joke??? Fabrizio needs to stay in WSBK and help Nori to win the title (or try to win it by himself), not to race on second-rate bike in another series. I can't believe my eyes! :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Im glad Casey is taking time out for his health.
I have been very concerned for his safety, watching him race that beast of a machine around whilst being ill and in poor physical condition, has been a worry.

Taking the time away from racing to recover is a massive decision and responsibility for Casey, and for the Team.

I'm devistated, but I prefer him to be safe and fit to fight for another championship..there's always next year...cheers and get well soon casey xxxxxx

hes gota be bad to miss 3 races when hes still in a realistic chance of winning the championship.

As for WSBK perhaps Mr Bayliss is stepping up to really spoil spies chances!

Stoner wont be back. He wants to quit racing, Ducati are giving him time to reconsider this decision. This has been commented on within the paddock for some months now.

It's a sad loss to the sport but once that spark goes out that's it. Peaking so young must be difficult and I wish him well in whatever he chooses to do.

Thanks Casey.

So, I wonder who gets the Team A engineers and crew chief? This must suck for NH to have to keep the Team B crew, while Kallio comes in and inherits the Team A crew and staff. I'm sure Fabi ain't going to race in race #3 and they'll bring up someone else to fill the seat.

Ozborn, I don't think this is the way Casey will want to leave GP, unless he is forced to. I did read some where that Stoner prefers the quite life but he's also a fighter, he will want to come back and prove a point to one or two people.

Casey is in his early 20's - I'm hard pressed to believe he's ready to quit especially with all the hard work he's put in to get to MotoGP.

And soops. It wouldn't make any sense for Nicky to want to use Casey's crew for 3 races after he's been making progress with his own guys. Surely his crew wouldn't be happy if he dumped them for a couple of rounds either.

I hope it's nothing serious and he will be back!

That said the circumstances of his niggly injuries etc have been odd... Depression is not bound by athleticism, wealth, success, talent or intelligence. If he is in a crisis of confidence I hope his time off allows him to pull himself together whatever his problems are. However he would not be the first sports star to call it quits before his time, maybe he's just not enjoying himself.

Couple of comments.

1)What a shame, fine competitor, hate to see this happen.

2)How can Fabrizio possibly help Haga except by putting his brain in neutral and taking Spies out.

3)Fabrizio's only chance to take the title would be a total melt-down by Spies. Does anyone really imagine that will happen?

4)To all the manufacturers and riders, MotoGP is number one and WSBK is a distant second in importance. Why? One reason Valentino, everyone wants the chance to try and beat him.

5)Don't be surprised if Stoner never returns to the top level.
