"as we seen yesterday the racing is far better when casey has some decent rubber under him , not even the chatter matters , if he has grip that lasts he will fight to the end for the win."

True but also applies to others or are you suggesting they are on the perfect rubber of their choice?

What if Jlo & Pedro were on the soft option? Its speculation but at least its slightly more realistic.

@ shamu....This is from MCN.."Two podium finishes in 27 races and no sign of any major progress with the struggling Desmosedici have shaken Rossi's faith in the Bologna factory to deliver the competitive package he desperately craves to end his career on."

Dont know why you are having a go at Stoner as he has never said it is 80% the rider not the bike..This guy did, so how come he has those satistics

So this just goes to show that the 9 world titles were won on the best bike....Right ???

Can someone please tell me the year, bike and rider that last won a championship without the best bike?

So it gets worse......"After all I did for Yamaha they put in the team a very strong team-mate so I was p****d off with Yamaha more than him."

This from Rossi, so he blocked every good rider from getting in on the same team until Jorge and he spat the dummy.
If he hadnt have blocked Casey you can be sure he would have had more than 2.

@ Shamu.
We will back you up. We also notice that a guy that can speak english can balls it up more than the 2 guys sitting next to him on the dais.

"If WE were pushin it real hard and spinning it through the whole race"
"WE tried to get to front as soon as possible"
"WE sat back and tried to cool the tyres down a bit"
"WE got a bit more grip out of them"
Who the f#%k is riding the bike?

One positive thing that we noticed was that he has finally realised that "spinning it up" screws the tyres.
Hallelujah.
Only took him 7 years.
That's why no one else rides like that. Not because Stoner is the only none that can do it.
Anyway we will be sad to see him go.
O.K. we are lying, can't wait.
John McEnroe of Moto Gp.

"He seems to be the only guy who can just roll up with a bike that isn't perfect and win. Yep, he'll be missed"

Why do you assume the bike is not perfect...because Stoner complains about it?

Oh yes, if it comes from his mouth, it must be true!

Some of you guy's have a go at Casey for his so called non humble tributes

Well read this...MCN: If you go to Yamaha, for the first time in your career you will be the number two, and second to Lorenzo. What do you think of this?
Rossi: “This is another important thing to make the choice because in Ducati I can be the number one and in Yamaha have Lorenzo. It is another thing to consider.”

Here is a guy who is not even racing at the front and he is not sure if he will go to the best team and be No2 rider....dont see much humility here.

I'm hiding under my rock until I can find something negative to say about Stoner or until I come up with one of my wonderful and witty (in my own mind at least)
stories for you.
