"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.

@ Dave.
i never said anything about what i thought of the statistics , only that to compare the two you can only add when they raced each other.
here we go again! , a rossi fan only willing to state two championships apiece , there is a lot more to it than that.
stop lowering yourself bro.

@dacron,

here we go again, only stat that ultimately counts is WC's but that's why CS fans rate it last on their list of stats because it's the one stat that says it all.

You are right though, I have lowered myself so I'm waking up to my self and logging off to watch anything on TV, even reruns of Seinfeld make more sense than CS fans.

@ Dave

You contradict yourself left, right and centre!!! OF COURSE ROSSI HAS MORE TITLES!!!! He has been in MotoGP racing for SIX YEARS more than CS. And, on factory machinery from the start. And again, look how much stronger the competition is since about 2006/2007...? Again, the addition of DP, CS, JL, AD... The list goes on. And at the end, CS wasn't on the Yamaha, he was on the Ducati, the "POS" Ducati VR fans B1tch about day in and day out... So head to head is the only comparison that is fair, and yes, 2 championships a piece, with Stoner having a HUGE edge on race wins and Rossi having the "Better" machinery? hmmm...

In most sports, if there is a tie ad the end on points, it comes down to wins... Casey wins.

Stoner will overcome the tyre problem. If he can win WC on a Ducati that no-one (i repeat) no-one else can ride, he will go on to secure his 3rd WC and then retire.

"ok...so we all should forget the last 5 years and remember only the years prior to prevent lowering ourselves to fodder.
the years casey rode in motogp must be forgotten and banished from memory as they never happened and are only fickle fragments of imagination of the low."

@dacron

No. We should remember casey as the champion he is. An excellent rider with skills and speed that is exceptional. However, at the end of their professional careers, it is the championships that counts. Simple. If stoner couldnt convert his speed to championships, then those fast laps and slides are useless.

@ Brainfart

Then, what is your point? 2 Championships, hopefully 3 after only 6 years, only 5 on factory material, so he clearly HAS converted to championships! So WHAT IS THE POINT OF YOUR ARGUMENT?!

I agree with Md Zane. Capirex made lots of noise about how he was going to represent the riders interest in dealing with Bridgestone this year. His background is 250 racing and he's typically a high corner speed rider. I'm wondering if he hasn't pushed for the tire they have introduced? Another point, Casey Stoner is the rider who gave Bridgestone their 1st MotoGP championship. Some respect! They don't even listen to him now.
