Its 2008 all over again. Its a shame that such a talented rider can be so mentally fragile. At the beginning of the season I thought Stoner would dominate motogp for the next few years like Rossi in the early 2000s but now its looking unlikely he will even win the title this year. Will be interesting to see how he does in the test tomorrow.

Own up to your mistake Casey, Alvaro was committed to the corner and you misjudged it.

In Stoners defense though it must be frustrating to have races dictated to by the constant changes to the tyres.

By seasons end Bridgestone will have to bring 10 different tyre choices for each manufacturer. 10 more for the different riders, and 10 more for the different tracks, and finally 20 more for the CRTs.
oh and assymetric ones as well.

Don't like Stoner, but that's a fair account of what happened so fair play to him. I thought he'd throw one of his regular strops but I was wrong. Onto Laguna, no doubt he's be up front again soon.

Apologises? Only for the cameras and microphones. He never went to see Bautista and say "sorry" face to face.

Well, as you can see, this is the guy that always complains about the "dirty passes" and all that stuff. The truth is that they don't like it when they are affected, just that. When they do it, they don't care.

Stoner? Go home, I'm not gonna miss you. Congrat for the 8 place lol

above all he thinks he is. Reminds me of that "Your ambitions outwe......." Not the same thing goes for him. Not even on the best bike he can produce a decent result. Like always has an excuse, tyre...etc.
