One more!! him Mottomaters tell very clear why he won the Title him 2007.. and why he loss after that.. For 3 consecutive years Stoner put the Ducati him 4 place on the standings.. Now i can bet my hause if he was riding the Ducati him 2011 and 2012 he will not make better then 4 And iven if he finish on 4 place again i can only say 2 places ahed of Rossi him 2011, for a young gun with big mouth like this sounds like he win 4 title with Ducati.. Anyway take the bicycle Stoner

Stoner's comments remind me of Ari Vatanen (rally driver). Both have similar styles, very hard, win it or bin it, very loose.

Ari said that unless you crash, go past the limit, you will never find the limit. Stoner rode the Ducati to find the limit. It is clear Rossi hasn't been prepared to push that hard.

Somebody should say, "Hey Casey! Explain to us why you left Ducati IF you feel/felt that it's just a matter of adapting. Obviously you realized that you were on a decline for the 3 seasons following your phenomenal 2007 WC win."

Once again, Rossi started this with his comments about Casey not trying haard enough and that he and JB could fix the Duc in a matter of minutes. Rossi did not put in any where near the effort riding the Duc that Casey did, just watch the videos of Casey riding it and is quitting in shame and doubting his own ability. Rossi deserves to have his nose rubbed in it after two years of failure. What goes around comes around!

Seeing as his results got progressively worse year on year after 2007 and then he quit Ducati to go to the strongest bike in 2011 and is now going into hiding I don't think he is very well placed to criticise Rossi for his efforts on the Ducati.
It's funny how he is only brave enough to speak out so much now that he is retiring and knows that other riders will remain professional and not sink to the same immature level .
