Disclaimer: I see Stoner as a top rider, highly talented, as Lorenzo or Pedrosa, but no more no less - but with a more spectacular riding style and a peculiar character.

His final race was pretty much a corollary of his career: it was a creditable and gutsy race (even if he said he wouldn't be taking any risks, everyone knew that he would try to get the best result possible).

Congratulations, Casey for a good final race and a career to show for.

However, his voluntary inability to extend it further doesn't merit a more profound admiration.

Shame he started on the wrong tyres and lost 40 seconds in the pit stop, otherwise he could have won, even with his injury.
And to all the Rossi-sheep, Stoner dominated Dani by 4 wins to 1 before his Indy injury. Without that inury this seaosn would have been another 10+ wins.
Dani is a level below Stoner but he's still 3 or 4 levels above Rossi-the-fraud.
