I think every rider at this level, when they sign on a team should expect a bike that will perform on a certain level(especially a factory bike). To see all the riders that have ridden that bike and got the same results as VR and NH speaks to Ducati's inability to produce a well rounded GP bike.

Stoner is the most qualified person amongst them to make statements about how to ride the Ducati...
Love him or hate him, you cannot deny his ability. Motogp will be missing one of the best in 2013.

Stoner has the name but VR fans have the fame when it comes to moaning and spouting ****e. Your goat made a complete ass of himself by barely being able to place on that Duke. Well said Casey. To the dayglo panty brigade out ther, keep drinking the Kool-Aid.

Just found a pair of Stoner tinted glasses and am putting them on now.

Argh! I am a god!
Get out of my way mortal, you are a mere fly beneath my shoe of greatness!
No mathematician! You are wrong, 1+1 does not equal two, I am number one and two of me equals awesome! I have the power!!!

And now I take them off.... oh, I am just a poor boy from a poor family

Even the Greatest Rider of All Time, Giacomo Asgostini said that Stoner was a Better Rider than Mr Rossi - says heaps about Stoner's talent. Mr RossI's fans must deep down inside beaware of this,THATS what makes then HATE Stoner so much, his success overshadows Mr Rossi achievements. Since 2007 when they both competed on Factory bikes,Stoner has the best result to date.
Now tell me,what will Mr Rossi's excuse be if in 2013 the wins don't come his way?

@wylie coyote u must understand that every rider has worked hard to come here,not only stoner.Well if u think coming at 14 years is really great,then what do u call Rossi who is racing for 16 years now and still want to win.
Many are saying that stoner is better rider than Rossi and agostini said that,doohan said that.ok he is faster than rossi.u all have to remember that being a better rider doesnt make a person a legend.on ehas to have that will to race,ability to race for long long time.Nobody becomes a legend by racing 6 years,not in any kind of sport.Longetivity and hunger for victory are key.Rossi surely has it at 33 years of age wanting to fight with young guns.Stoner on other hand who has a chance of becoming legend wants to retire at 27 years.For rossi racing is life.For stoner racing is just a profession.
Go Valentino,Go Sachin Tendulkar.Fighters

what a bunch of pathectic losers on here he was asked a ? on ducati and answered it now a bunch are saying stfu on ducati and the others are saying he bitter and angry lol you losers need to grow a set and realise we have been lucky to see some of the best riders ever racing putting there life on the line when they go balls out to win races . Look at lorenzo he would give anything to have casey on a bike next year even though without him it will be a lot easier for him to win thats all about balls and racing and they are 2 of the very best we have been lucky to watch

This is getting boring. No Casey you are not the only rider who can ride the Ducati fast. The current bike isn't the same as the one you won a WC on. And the competition has developed whereas the bike you supposedly developed turned into bag of nails before you left. Ducati's downfall somewhat also lays at Stoners door, because you cannot develop a bike.

Stoner really has some physco problems. If he is that good why quit? He's not fit to wipe Rossi's @rse. He's done nothing compared to Rossi and yet he talks like he's done it all. I think he has an impression of himself that is not in touch with reality. Fancy trying to pour sh1t on JB what a clown. As an aussie I find the bloke and embarassment making comments like that about one of the best riders ever, it make Stoner look like a silly littel boy. Grow a pair you nitwit and stop acting like a girl.

Not only did he insult rossi and niky but anyone else who has been on the bike, he could of simply just said the bike need to be used a certain way, but he even insulted riders that talk about riding styles. and seems like stoner fans are just happy to see him isnult rossi and miss the point. btw to ppl who keep saying stoner handed a championship wining bike to rossi, why did he only win 1 year and why did he do worse and worse every year, i even remember him falling of during the warm up lap i mean he was going dead slow.
and he did complain ow wait hes still complains now but he has the cheek to say another rider does nothing but complain
