People can say what they wish about the honda being the magic solution, but, at the end of the day, casey's done more in one season on it than dani has in, what, the last 3years? I could be wrong. But i doubt it. And if it's suddenly leagues ahead this year, Why's dani, or dovi not leading by light years? Simple. Casey is brilliant. Would actually love to see JL at honda with casey in the future. Them you'd see a true title show down. With No excuses.

I love it how early on this year and late last year all JB, Rossi @ all his fans were slating Stoner for developing a pig of a bike and saying that ROSSI is going to develop it into a masterpiece everyone can ride fast.

Now that he is failing badly Rossi and his fans suddenly say its not rossi who has to develop the bike its up to Ducati.

Anyone with a clue knows that all a rider can do is give feedback and that it it up to the engineers to turn that feedback into new parts but if Ducati had sucseeded this year all credit would be given to Rossi.


When things go badly for rossi you all blame the bike and when they go well you credit Rossi.


When things go badly for Stoner you blame him and when they go well you credit the bike.


Time to face the facts that Stoner is fast on anything .

@ Count Yorga.
What a complete waste of space your post is. Where do you get the idea the Honda does not handle you simpleton?
And to all you other posters that think Casey has changed from his whinging/moaning ways, stay posted. Easy to show humility when your at the top. It is when the chips are down people show their true colours. Or just maybe he is happy to be a bachelor for this weekend. lol.

I dont think count yorgas post says the honda doesn't handle. I think it says the yamaha handles better. But whats accuracy or comprehension got to do with it? Of to pit lane with you.

I think both Lorenzo and Stoner have a mutual respect based on pure racing skills.....an acknowledgement of the others abilities done the old fashioned hand shake way and not the sneak to the press and lie to belittle the other rider like Rossi has done over the years.

The top 3 aliens now can do this when each wins and garner the true sportsmanship and respect that has been sadly missing by Rossi's ego fueled hate antics with the press over the years.

I can't imagine any of these top 3 going on live tv to belittle their opposition and rate them on marks out of 10. No class that ex alien, thats for sure.

Go Casey - just keep well away from the slower Ducati rider & the race and title is yours.

Amazing it will be 5 years on works bikes - including four years on the Ducati. total achieved will be 2 world titles - most GP wins & podiums in the 800 classs.

Not too shabby - in fact the highest achieving racer of all time in the 800 class.


Go Casey Go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
