I wonder how many World titles Honda would have had in the 800cc era if they had approached Casey earlier?
We will never know,but you can be assured that they are very happy they have Casey now!

I've read an article where Nakamoto says he believes it's a combination of both rider and bike and it's hard to disagree. For all Casey's (now) undoubted talent, the Ducati did let him and the other riders down. Mostly via low-sides.

The Yamaha and Honda are close enough that an Alien like Jorge or Casey is going to beat other almost-alien riders like Dovi or Ben 9 times out of 10, regardless of which of the two bikes they rode.

The Ducati will seriously ruin your reputation, though. Beware.

Honda finally understood that Pedrosa is not anywhere good enough.
He lost 5 years in a row!
And with Stoner Honda would probably have won every year!
But sure, Hond built a great bike!

Honda has to give a big 'Thank You' to Mr. Livio Suppo, who recommended Stoner to Honda, having worked for Ducati before he knew perfecly well what sh.tbikes were made there!

That Manufacturer championship for honda is a very hollow one when you think of it. If it wasn't for Stoner they'd be sucking wind with their other riders. Stoner made the bike look like a world beater without special parts, loobying to Ezpeleta or crying for better tires. Amazing isn't it?

Don't pad yourself on the back too much honda!
