MotoGP » Stoner: There was always a CRT in the way

“Every lap was spoiled which is very frustrating as I really feel we could have been on pole but we'll have to settle for where we are” – Casey Stoner.

Why does not Crashnet write a decent article like one the bags the bike not the rider.
As a MotoGP fan i would prefer the CRT get the ass as they detract from the competitive bike (reduce air time for the major sponsor) and also limit the number of riders in the MotoGP from and nationality as it this would appeal to more nations, thus more viewers thus more sponsorship, thus more team, thus more bike on the grid.
About half the grid for tomorrow race is either Italian or spanish. No wonder they are so popular.
And do not give me the excuse the best riders would not get a ride as a result

Those making the comments about Casey obviously have never been on a track and had to put up with Numptys on their overpowered bikes, holding you up in every corner, just to crack it open down the straight.

Casey is Australian. He tells it like it is.
He cares not one jot what you think.

here we go.
Haters, haters, haters.

Have you seen the quali?

I can understand, that Casey is disapointed.
He lost about .3 sec because of,how Colin said, piece of sh...t bike's.

Its the same situation for all? Yeah, but to have a clean lap or to overtake in place where you dont leave a time, thats poor luck and Casey havent it yesterday.

He wanted to be at pole and was on 2 laps to do it.
CRT crap makeking the MotoGP not better. Colin said it directly. In the race i cant see Lorenzo will be beaten. Yam is such a smooth bike...

To the sensitive types whose "feelings" are hurt when Casey makes some sometimes blunt comments, quite frankly I don't give a to$$ about your "feelings". Get over yourselves, man up and accept the fact that these guys aren't playing tiddly winks out there. This is serious $hit, they are running on the edge of literal life and death, and quite frankly I'm not interested in their fan sensitive PC press friendly versions of what's going on trackside. I want to hear it the way it is, warts and all. I say thanks Casey, you might be a little confrontational, but at least I know I'm hearing the facts, and from that I get a much better sense of what it's really like out there. Ignore the moaning fairies who hypocritically complain about your "moaning".

no worry. next year we will enjoy the high speed collision between prototype and crt and some rider's body parts will be flying over all places with the evil rider marc marquez riding for the factory honda.

the rivalry between bradl and marquez will increase those console gaming riding style to the max in the real world.

Please read what Lorenzo said in the other story, he said the track was busy but he also said he chose his moment to push and got pole, unlike Stoner who just went for it
