His only mistake was leaking to the press that Stoner was retiring thinking that Stoner would be forced to rethink and have to stay but it didnt work.

After years of supporting Stoner he mistakenly screwed it over on that matter and we lost a great rider

Suppo will always be on my sh*t list for sacking Loris in the worst possible way: He told the journalists and Loris lerned about it from... the papers.

That's not the way to end partnership with the racer who gave the team its first wins.

@Roo Shooter.
thats where i think everyone is wrong.
if livio leaked it to the press it was because stoner asked him to , stoner has wanted to get his retirement public since 2011 but honda kept asking him to withhold from doing so in the hope he changed his mind .
stoner was anxious to get it out there because he badly wanted out .
it was a perfect ploy by two old pals that worked.

What a load of horse manure! Suppo always backed Stoner, Stoner delivered him WCs for two different manufacturers, first year each time - and Suppo stood up for Stoner against Marlboro. Those two carried each other all the way.

@big bang

so what?? rossi threw his toys outta the pram when they declared the bike was more than the rider. And he took his toys and joined yamah. now after the ducati incident is it the rider or the bike??
i believe even with the crossplane technology the yamaha would not have been competitive as Rossi on the Repsol. It was Yamahas uber millions coupled with rossi and new design that won the title in 2004...so who poached who again?
