Must be sad to have such a biased view of the world Tetley. Rossi has no comeback to the truths of Stoner's comments. It is not that he is being polite or "classy". Why drag that into this thread? Casey is saying you adjust your style to suit the bike. Is this something that is going to upset Rossi fans as well? Rossi is GOAT and they should completely abandon years of design and research and build something completely different to suit him? They did that and he still went slow!

You can really see what Stoner is talking about when you look at old clips of him on the Duc. He just kind of let the thing do what it wanted under him, bucking and sliding all over the place. Kind of reminds of downhill ski racers when they just let skis go where they want instead of fighting them. He also has masterful throttle control which is key to taming the power delivery of the Ducs motor.

I know he is being asked questions and is responding accordingly, but Casey should really shut the bloody feathers up, or stick to talking about Honda which is his team and employer. He is tooting off about Ducati more than Nicky, Rossi, the Ducati Organization and the whole of Italy all put together. What gives him that right? Because he won a solidarity championship there and fled amoaning himself two years later only fourth in the WC? You sure made a fantastic decision Casey to retire at the end of the season. An even better one would be to leave right away now!
