Is Casey Stoner a Pom, because he certainly does enough whinging. Two world championships and the only the only rider to really get to grips with a Ducati, no one doubts his talent, but is it totally a tyre problem. I don,t think so. What Bridgestone or any other future tyre supplier should do is produce one compound for each of the 3 uses,(Slick, Inters and Wets)then its up to the teams and riders to sort out their bikes/riding style to suit. Also why has nobody tried using a modern serious alternative to the front forks, or is that because the manufacturers now own the suspension companies. There, I've had my whinge.

@ Ian S.
since the new front tire was introduced there has been more crashes than the rest put together.
thats more crashes in 2 races than the last 5.
i think your just allergic to stoner commenting mate , as a lot of other people who comment on here.
your post is a genuine whinge about stoner!!
anyway we will all see soon enough that what stoner is saying every rider will start saying.
