@Dave.
i'm not suggesting anything mate.
just pointing out what is obvious , stoner's bike refuses hard compound back tires , so it leaves his options much more restricted than others.
why the hell do you think he was the only one that chose the soft compound?
if the bike accepted hards he would of used it and been able to still rip at the front.
as it goes he can't use them and rip at the front.

@ Hoppy...Yep he just got Stonerized. The only cure is to get on crash and Bag Stoner.
Must be a lot of Rossi fans hanging in trees coz it has gone pretty quite since the race.

@Wee Wee .
sadly mate i will still be here.
stoner mabe 32 points behind but as we seen at mugello tires are his biggest rival this year , sadly his bike hates em.
but stoner is still stoner and worth talking up because its clear if he can get the tires to work at certain tracks he is unbeatable.

Yes Casey made the smart tyre choice, but Lorenzo will take a lot of positives from the race. Jorge is generally easier on his tyres that Casey so while he'll be kicking himself that he made the wrong choice he will be confident that on the same tyre he would have won. Only 3.5 seconds over full race distance? Imagine where Jorge would have been had he been on a soft tyre.

It Jorge's own fault that he came second instead of first, but Casey beat him purely on tyre choice and nothing else.
