this guy is just something else.
he is nothing like anyone , the rest are all seeking glory even the ones that have already tasted it before.
all he wants is to do his job and go fishing , thing is he is simply still too good at this sport , riding around trying make chatter and still top of the times.
i have read livio and shuie"s words on what happened an what they think , its totally wild.
they chucked out all his pr work and testing duties but it was still not enough to change this mans mind.
principles and commitment to your own decisions like that is as high an expectation you could ever expect to live by.
i'm going to be happy and enjoy the last year of this prodigy we have rather than be sad and feel down.
feeling down can wait till valencia.

I missed yesterday so only now I see Stoner's 'retirement'. It was very unexpected but perhaps we shouldn't be too surprised. He has achieved all he set out to do, demonstrated he is a brilliant rider, (poetry in motion as a TV commentator said of his cornering skills), he is a young father, and it does seem he has health issues which affected him in the past. Either way, its absolutely his call, I wish him a good season and the best in retirement. I'm sure he wont be short of things to keep him busy either...

Continuing from my last comment: After just reading the tragic news of Lascorz (WSB) - though I am still keeping my fingers crossed he will still make a full recovery, I cant help thinking Stoner just did the right thing. There are quite a lot of serious accidents not to mention the tragedy of Simoncilli in MotoGP last year - the price can be high.
