Stoner is a great rider but sometimes his win or bin riding catches him out Lorenzo and Pedrosa build up thier pace over the sessions and dont crash as much thats why this year Stoner is behind them both in the championship.

Stoner was beat in the race because of HIS mistake if he will admit it was HIS mistake in QP.

He crashed out agaist Pedrosea a few weeks ago another of HIS mistakes if he does not hold on to his championship it will be HIS fault but I expext he will blame someone else and not give credit to the winner.

This is why he gets no respect from the fans

@ mean fans like you right.

Phillip Island has sold more tickets than ever since it was included on the GP calender for Casey's last race.

He jumped on that bike yesterday with not only a fractured ankle, but every ligament torn, plus damage to his tibia and fibia. Then on top of that you can include one very beaten body and nearly put it on the podium. Yes he was gifted a spot because of Bens DNF, but so did everybody else except Dani.

The guy is a legend, he has had to beat 3 MotoGP world champions to be current World Champion and you can include a 9 times world champion in that.

He races for wins not Championships and the fact that you dont know that just goes to show how ignorant you are a troll, that is all you are and ever will be..
Not seeing that guy sliding a motorcycle around next year is a huge loss to the sport.

Maybe restpect should be initiated among or between riders themselves before the fans will do the same. Try to go over with stoner's comments against Rossi and thus, you will know who is a cultured man between the 2. Yet, Rossi was praising him for making the ducati bike appearing good, on the contrary stoner is allegging that rossi is always complaining and yet not doing anything for the bike, further he said ducati must be ride with pride. It is unethical and irrespectful to opine on something especially to a multiple championship titles holder as that of rossi, unless asked. Look at lorenzo, rossie and pedrosa how the conduct and behave themselves and restpect their co-fellow riders, they dont engage in bad mouthing.

Having seen both of them ride, it's easy to put them both in the same class (and Hailwood is my hero). But don't take my word for it - ask Agostini - he says so too. 15 WC titles says so - you ride a keyboard.

To all the negiative clowns on this site, read this,
“I'm not completely satisfied because I wasn't as consistent as I'd hoped, but to be on the podium is a great feeling and a good reward for all our hard work. I also want to pay tribute to Casey today because he delivered a brilliant performance. Physically he wasn't in the best shape but it was still very hard to beat him."
Dovi says it like it is, if you disagree with him you better have been one of the riders or your a complete tool head

@ ME

This is racing. EVERYONE falls. Have you seen some of the spectacular offs JL has had? Or Rossi? Or Hayden? Or Pedrosa (Who until this season has missed out on championships due to injuries from CRASHING, so that's a flaw in your argument about them) or RDP, or Cal, or Spies or ANY other rider. If you're not crashing at least SOME of the time, you're not trying hard enough.
