Stoner will not match Rossi.....Stoner is to old and the competition is much greater now....to much young talent coming through the ranks! He'll be in the top 5, but not #1 or #2

@NDF,

It's nothing to do with how dominant Casey is currently (and he has been magnificent), but everything to do with his number of races left, the natural cyclical comparative strength of any particular manufacturer to make dominant equipment, and the more competitive riders coming up through the ranks in the years to come.

It's a fact of life that with big money, which is a relative new thing in motorcycle racing, there is a natural closing of competitive gap between the top sportsmen (racers) in their chosen profession.

For example, while statistically one could say that Ago is the GOAT, would he have been as absolutely dominant today....with the level of professionalism (training, skills, work ethic, competition) that exists today?
I say no.....and THAT proves that it becomes harder and harder to be a single, dominant, racer these days and the future, than it has ever been in the past.

Oh, and Rossi will CERTAINLY win again, stretching that target even further

Can't wait for tomorrows race! Haven't got a clue who'll win! Its anyones guess? THAT IS IF STONER HAS TO DO A LAP MORE THAN THE REST! THIS MAN IS SO FAR AHEAD OF THE REST THAT THE REST ARE JUST HAVING THEIR OWN little battle behind! WITH ALL RESPECT TO THE GREAT MAN ITS BORING TO WATCH AND ITS THE RESTS FAULT! AND DOING NOTHING TO GET THIS GREAT SPORT OUT OF JUST THE RESULTS SECTION!

"Ducati had the best bike without a shadow of a doubt"

I reckon it was Stoner, not the Ducati. Let's see.

Take Stoner's results out of the equation (because that's supporting my theory). How does your theory look now?

It was the fastest, for sure. But if you think that the power advantage a screamer gives you comes for free, ask yourself "why isn't every team running them"?

Educate yourself.
