"We would like to improve rear grip and turning on the exit, also some more stability on the brakes"
From Casey. He is not fully fit either.
How quick will he be when he is fully fit and gets a bike that he is happy with???

Whine, whine, whine. Grow some hair kid, toughen up!
Stomach ache, flu, stress, sleep disorder, diarrhea, over the years this kid got it all and is never shy to share it as an excuse for poor performance.

He's talented just need to learn how to be a man and hold his stance. Take a year and go join the Army or something, you'll be glad you did.

Casey's sick, yet still .6 ahead of Simoncelli, but according to you he's "never shy to share (an illness) as an excuse for poor performance".

Where's the poor performance in this case?

He's poorly, want a cup of hot milk?
I think he's awesome on a bike and fast as .... but why when he tops the sessions by at least half a second and has run away race wins has he got to stock up on excuses?? Why can't he say yes were doing well were fastest but hopefully theirs more to come. Or I've got a cold but I'm an athlete and paid millions so lets just get on with it! I'd like to see him play in the race with 2nd,3rd,4th etc, just to show how awesome he is.
I know I'll get slated for this comment....

I said the guy is talented, and on a top bike this tile is his, I really don't get why he brings up this stuff, maybe insurance? In case he low sides when pressured by Simon? Maybe to say: I can beat you even with my lungs filled with mucus?
This is not an attack to the guy, he is talented as I said, and clearly the front runner for this championship, but gosh stop whining.
We have seen him on a similar position before and had a complete meltdown and lost to Rossi on mind games, come on...

And Rossi has been banging on about his shoulder all year and nobody seems to think he needs to man up..

By the way.. There's the elbow on the ground again! Mad!

Gosh, he brought it up because he was asked about it.

Why did Rossi keep talking about his shoulder? He was asked.

Is it honestly that hard to understand? Nevermind, you guys just need something to complain about because he is stomping in the colon of your hero. Carry on.
