Well i have to say when he is on it casey is unbelievable to watch. unfortunatly next year there are going to be alot more of the slower riders in his way to punch , run off the track and complain about and he knows it .

Yeah Adriana that makes sense given the 3 wins and 5 dnfs the year before. And the consistent drop in wins every yeah since 2007. Let alone the poorly performing Bridgestones, and with Rossi and Jorge both on Yams yeah definitely 5 to 6 wins.

Of course Casey wants Ducati to have a bike that is as good as the Honda...


Rossi would be all over him and Stoner's fragile little ego can't handle anyone invading his personal space.

I really hope the Duc is half decent because Rossi knows how to unsettle the wee laddie and will use every trick in the book to knock him off his stride.

Also, Jorge is showing this dude too much respect. If he wants another title, he needs to cut all the phoney back-slapping BS and start getting a little LOCO. (a la Vale @ Laguna 08) Eye of the tiger, son...

Stoner wants Ducati to do well.

He is smart. He knows that if Rossi has another year that is so bad, Rossi's uncle Carmelo will change the rules or the tires or something to help Ducati & hinder Yamaka/Honda. - Unregistered

Wow. He is talking like a world champion. All his speech is very poised and with sense. He is a grown man... It's almost like hearing from F1-drivers...

I would prefer him to have a more Colin Edwards-type free speech... - Unregistered

I think Stoner is being sincere (about the need of Ducati getting a good bike) because he - like all others - are competitive guys. Sure he likes to win by a mile (moreso than Rossi who prefers to win in the last corner) but he wants to beat the best (of the rest) at the peak of their capabilities...
