Its clear he had the pace to win. At the end you could see the bike sliding more than usual. This is no 'excuse' as a certain sector of fans will have you believe.

Like Stoner said, he's here to win races. Every race he's finished he's been on the podium, thats some going so far. Take the win in Germany Casey! :)

Makes sense to me, and fits exactly what we witnessed watching it. It was out of character for Stoner to be so fast on lap 1 and drop off like that. Normally is 2 - 3 laps to wind up and once he gets going he is normally so fast.

This will be good though, people with first hand experience or knowledge will understand his reason for early pace and dropping off. Everyone else will be divided by listening to the professional rider and call it moaning!...

On TV, Stoner referred to the problem as the "internal tyre pressure"?? As opposed to the External tyre pressure?? Just an observation of an unusual description of the problem.

Of course... It's got to be someone else's fault right, couldn't just say the tire went off, got to blame someone for using the wrong pressure... Maybe you just went out too hard too early and used up your tire quicker than some..??

Lucky for us fans watching he did have a problem as it made for a much more interesting race and now brings the Championship points a bit closer.

I agree bring on Germany !!!

"we believe" and "I think" aren't exactly inspiring comments. Or is it only me that sees it this way. I would like to think a professional outfit like HRC could be a bit more precise with the comments.
