Great windup by crash just before sepang. Well done. As we all know Casey and his followers are a fragile bunch, and rossi has just proved this to be true. Casey is still smarting with a huge chip on his shoulder because ducati did nothing to help him. And why would they ?
For the same reason Honda wont. This from Shuhei Nakamoto " Honda's policy of no rider input was a direct result of Casey joining us in 2011 "
And there you have it. Nobody is listening to Casey. Not even his boss.

My only hope this year is for Rossi and Ducati to be able to challenge for race wins.I don't think it will be the case but if they do manage to get that bike working how Rossi wants it,the grudge match between Stoner and Rossi will make it a hell of a fight.Stoner is a hell of a rider,just wish he had a personality to match it.

Stoner has raw speed and incredible talent for pushing a bike to its limits, as demonstrated by normally qualifying in pole, and once at the head of the field is very difficult to catch and usually therefore wins by a country mile.

Rossi on the other hand is an brilliant tactician, with race craft second to none. Of course he likes to play mind games, all part of the tactics! Not the fastest, but has exceptional feeling for what the bike is doing.

I personally want to see good, close racing, and its this that makes Rossi the 'GOAT' in most peoples eyes. Its not drag racing !

If or when we start to see battles with Stoner vs ??? of the quality, frequency and duration that Rossi has given us over the years, then maybe just maybe we might have a new 'GOAT'.

Who wouldn't love to see both of them on competitive bikes this season ?

Please explain about all of moaning done by Rossi this year. I mean if it is just Stoner, why did his high priced replacement say the exact same things Casey did? If racers race, why was Casey the rider who chose to ride the Duc on the ragged edge to 4 wins, 9 podiums, 4 poles, and 3 fast laps just a year ago, and your hero chose to circulate mid pack, rather than actually race. It seems your statement has as many holes as your riders ability.

Valentino Rossi win never win another race again.

Only one person can ride the Ducati is Stoner while others have failed badly including Rossi.

stoner has been belittled by vales fans since losail 07.
way i see it stoners comments here are the ultimate solution to get the fire back in the racing and mabe push a few to push that bit harder and join him in the high speed stakes this season.

Casey you would have NEVER won again a title if you stayed at Ducati. When you won the title in 2007 you had tyres made for the bike and TOP SPEED like never seen before in GPs. Every year after 2007 you won less and no more titles until your switch to the big HRC company.

So belittle or not you will never get respect as you're a whiner no a winner.

"when a rider can pass like rossi did v's lorenzo last corner in spain or v's stoner at laguna I also believe he's won from 3rd and maybe even 4th row on the grid,(you are the stats man)has casey (or anyone else done this)stoner -front row ...flag,,,BORING"

Hey kiddo, how long have you been watching MotoGP?? It's funny how you guys live in the past of races 3 and 4 years ago but totally ignore when Rossi was winning on the Honda. Do you remember that? Did you see that? If you did you would remember Rossi running away from the field and lapping all the way up into the top 10. Were you complaining about that being boring?? when your hero was the one buggering off into the distance? You guys act like Rossi never won run away races and hang around and fight for "entertainment". The only reason he was ever "fighting" was because he couldn't get away.

@McLarenP, re: This is a bit rich coming from someone who had the cheek to tell a 9 times world champion his ambition outweighed his talent!!

UR right McP, rossi shouldn't have said this to stoner back in 2006.

It was only fair it came back 5 years later to bite him back :)

I really hope Stoner quits after he wins the title again, I hope he goes home and lives happily ever after with his wife a child and we never hear from him again. He's a sour puss and hates his work and it shows. Never signs any autographs never shows his face to the fans of motogp. He can ride like the wind and is the best at the moment but riding is only half of who you must be at being a sports person.
