racing is not only a matter of speed but there is an element of luck. we have to look back to hayden-rossi fight in 2006 wherein after rossi crashed in the last race of the year, hayden won the championship title. had he not fell, rossi may had won the championship considering a small point gap between the 2. hayden by that time was so consistence, though won a few races.

it would appear that there are more uncertainties on who will win the championship title for 2012, among the 3 lorenzo, pedrosa, stoner (granting he is fit to race up to last race). it is still a long way to go. stoner is considered by some as the fastest rider of today, that is not all to win a title, competitive bike, luck and consistency count a lot. u may run as fast as fast rocket but end up on a broken ankle,so gambling to much on pride diminishes chance for a title. have a good day mate

Stoner s career in summery :

1 only quality= fastest rider

uneasy in duels(head to head)

Ducati 1 title only

Ducati Many falls

Honda 1 title only

unable to defend his title

Constantly unhappy with everything.....................

Announces retirement at 27.
fall on a Honda and goes for surgery.

He will be remembered not as as STAR but as a METEOR by the name of SPEEDY GONZALES (the fastest mouse in MotoGp)

He will be remembered as a fast rider who told it like it was and didn't clown around like a gimp !
Ducati ...1 title ?? yes and he won it !
Was criticised for throwing the LCR Honda down the road a few times when he was learning yet when the GOAT does it for 2 seasons on the Ducati it's the bikes fault ??? (mind you the GOAT has stopped crashing now he has started to settle for finishing)

Is that the move where Rossi went in too hot and needed to use the dirt in order to make the pass ?

How come the doctors in USA didnt even realize he would require surgery?? I dont take this bull. Itz only this doc in australia who's realized casey shouldnt have ridden in Indy. ha ha ha...funny...good one casey...u knw in 2012 i wud have won if not that crash at indy...any doctor, especially doctors who treat riders at this level would knw if he would require surgery or not...by the way, this australian doc is the same guy who diagnosed casey with lactose intolerence...:)

Greg- you have some points on your summary about stoner-so to get away/avoid from duel, he has to be fast. on this aspect Lorenzo is better than him and more so rossi
