And on reflection I would agree he and Lorenzo are both, now at least, quite considerate riders yet they have still managed a couple of championship

@Ausrossi .
my opinion on stoner's preference of how an overtake should be done based on watching him all these years would be along the lines of precision rather than super clean.
he gave other riders a fare race by choosing pinpoint moments to pass hard without contact and without disturbing the opponents concentration , so it is only fare he expected the same in return.
once there is contact in an overtake it shakes the riders train of thought disrupting the riders line and more often than not a moment of anger.
its enough to let the one overtaking gain a few extra tenths rather than a non contact would have them remain on your tail.

@Dacron I don't think it's just about contact either, more about getting in front without forcing them to brake hard to avoid you......I have to stop pedantic posting on here, really just looking forward to the racing starting again!

The fact is . I saw him as a 10/12 year old. Just so skillful to see him power sliding through the corners, throttle wound on foot up or foot down, it didnt matter to him the kid had to win and win he did. Check his results. I think he won 5 aussie titles in one weekend. Even the older boys were a little rattled by his fierce level of close racing and twist grip control....PURE MAGIC.....I was in awe
