I voted yes as I believe if the situation arises in Valencia that if Stoner is in front of Dani and if he lets him pass, Dani wins the championship, then I would let him pass. Thats the advantage of having a competitive team mate.

Is this how Dani would want to win the championship and is it in Caseys nature to step aside? of course not, but, that's just my opinion on it

He can forget it in Philip Island though. Casey will be gunning for that one.

while there is a chance dani can still win the title then stoner will be asked to by honda, they are a team they will want to win the riders and team championship.

its probably in their contracts somewhere

If Stoner can, then he should. He's a Honda rider, leaving at the end of the year. He can't win it now, but he can leave Honda with a present.

Of course, he has to first get in front of Lorenzo, which is probably not that easy anyway, but with a damaged ankle it might be asking a bit much in the first race back.

It'll be Jorge v The Hondas again for sure, just like last year, when he had 4 to contend with for most of the season. I reckon that CS will help DP no question and with George being an engine down (due to a Honda rider) he'll have his work cut out. Heart says Lorenzo for the title, head says its Dani's to lose.

@sasha I think you underestimate the top level riders. People had same doubts of casey after his diagnosis of lactose intolerance but he made an emphatic return. He was on podium position in Indianapolis until the painkillers wore off.. If stoner races, he will aim for pole and win..

Why on earth would Stoner help? Pedrosa said last year that he wont help him and he also chipped points from him last year making it even tighter. I say NO help. This isnt F1.
