Please please please all the new comers to MotoGP . The reason that Casey signed with Honda is that Ducati offered Lorenzo a LOT more money to come and ride the red bike than he was getting paid at the time. Wouldnt we all be suitably p*ssed off at a fact like that?
The Honda deal was done way before the end of his last season with Ducati. Cant say I blame him ,, more money better bike . Casey always quietly said " What Ducati give you in December is what you will be racing till October ). Good on Rossi for now giving Stoner some credit for making the Ducati look better than what it was .

What a shame, they need Stoner advice to understand how to ride a Ducati. How come Stoner understand Ducati while others are not?

Stoner must be a MotoGP Genius Of All Time.

He was actually giving a tip on how to gell with the red bike so others could try and get better results.And Casey's haters take a shot at him.
what's wrong with these people?.
Did he(Casey) say, "Rossi is not pushing hard enough so we can not assess the bike's potential"?.

Look whose talking....why couldn't stoner stay at Ducati after the first season? Pride or style ? He could not adapt to the style so kept his pride and went to a winning bike? Now what is he talking? Stoner, you look after your baby boy. There is more responsibility there. I think a visit to a psychologist may do good .. he will remember his time at Ducati !!!

Casey, just keep doing what you do best... grab that Honda by the scruff of the neck and ride the tyres off it... no one can do it as well as you...!!! Ignore the sh*t that flows on crashnet...

So, Stoner's parents selling everything they had and supporting their son why he chased his dream was spoiling him? Didn't have it hard like Rossi and other Italian and Brazilian riders who were given top of the line bikes in their rookie years and lived out of motorhomes and were only a couple of hours from home. Stoner was spoiled living 15,000KM from home in a caravan in the front yard of Puig's house. He now owns a farm in Australia that will provide a six figure income and he will never have to touch the tens of millions he has banked. He has a portfolio of shares that will provide more money per year than 99.9% of the population earn. But he is going to go broke and knows nothing of the real world? I think farmers know more of the real world than anybody, don't you? He is not retiring to a penthouse somewhere. He is working the land like his family has for generations.
