"We knew from when we first tested those tyres that it just wasn't going to work with our bike. We told Bridgestone, everybody from the beginning. But they didn't seem to care" - Casey Stoner.

@herewego

Exactly what Im saying. Stoner should get on with it as they are all on the same boat. He did say that he could ride around problems so I guess there is something wrong with his ability to ride around problems now. After all, he's only got 2 championships after a very long time in motogp from 125 to the premier class. And all of those times when he was a backmarker, midfield, non championship years on the carbon fiber ducati, he had excuses that would appall a very good liar.

When the masses understand the full engineering project that these beasts are you would understand the true art of racing. It's a totally different world to your road going R1's Blades and GsxRs. The problem is that too many here who are overweight(people who blast these guys as puny) and ride on the streets like an AR*E(check out how far I've leant my bike over!!!) will NEVER understand the depth of the problems.
There are some true enlightned people on here with sensible posts who waste their time talking to the lowest common denomination. Include me in the lowest and farewell my not so nice crash site.........

@brainfart, stoner a backmarker??? Even in his worst years with Ducati, sitting out multiple races he still finished in the top3 in the championship. Seeing as you have have some deluded love fantasy with Rossi where di he finish in the championship last year? How about this year? If he's lucky maybe 6th at best. You're shooting your mouth off but come a dry race and where is your hero??? Tires new or old, Stoners out there in the top 3 every race, your arguement is null and void based on the facts!!!

@SK27

Clearly you watched motogp when stoner was just about winning. Watch him before he got to ducati 07. He was a backmarker and midfielder before he got his hands on the best bike of 2007. And dont tell me youve been watching for more than 5 years as clearly you havent.

@ Inspectamoto

NO, Casey is leaving as he despises CRT... And quite rightly so.
Him and his family sacrificed SO MUCH... And for what? To end up in a second rate racing series that is being transformed into a cost cutting bargain bin that'll have it's ass handed to it by SBK??? What a waste of talent and a life of sacrifice. It is insulting to the memory of the greats what DORNA are doing to MotoGP.

CRT may have their place if someone built a truly competitive one and put RDP on it for example, but just filling the grid with slow bikes by teams that can't actually afford decent riders or development??? Please, not the "Premier Racing Class" I don't think...

Good on ya for making up your own mind Casey.

@Brainfart.
it don't really matter how long you been watching motogp because clearly you have learn't nothing!
the years befor stoner got on the ducati were the years he had to race on 2nd rate machinery.
all your saying is that stoner is crap for not winning titles on these bikes.
06 his first year in premier class was the new lcr team made formed so stoner could enter the top class , though he did get some mind very impressive results against far better bikes , he was hampered by michelin tires and a will to try and win on a bike that wasn't capable of doing so.
its clear you don't like the guy mate , but you are wasting your time trying to make him look bellow average by leaving out the telling factors .
