Wonder why Honda never got a sniff of the championship before Stoner arrived? Casey got on that bike and went fast from day one. After years of complaining about the Honda Dani obviously got a look at Stoner's data and altered his style. The way to ride the Honda is Stoner's way, MM being similar has no problem adapting. All these years of bull that Stoner is bad for a team because his style doesn't suit development. As for the Rossi fans claiming that he's a great chap who tows people around..remember his 2010 highside was because he slowed down to stop Hector following him and his tyres cooled down.

Lots of people goo-ing and ga-ing over the apparent 'manners' shown between the two riders. I wonder when they remember that MM is an absolute rookie and still outgunning the so-called goat will they be so kind, let alone at the first sign of aggression from the spaniard on the track? Cause you can bet your bottom dollar it will happen, whether Rossi can get close enough in a race to be the recipient, we've yet to see.

@stoner 39##
maybe your not watching moto gp enough, but when you say honda never got a sniff of a championship until Stoner arrived?? what about rossi's two and hayden?

i find it hard to see how people who are genuinely into bike racing get so caught up in riders personalities that they spend their time on here b!7ch'n about them.

Are you serious man? I can't get it, Honda is probably the most successful manufacturer in the history, they had great spells of dominance and not so long ago. I started watching gps in '94. i think, and since than i still believe they had the best bike in like every season and they are the biggest spenders for decades in motogp. The reason they didn't win through out 2004-2010 was Valentino Rossi and you can think whatever you want, but that is a fact. I know, of course, that Hayden won the title, but even in that season it was more about Rossi loosing the title than Hayden winning. All in all, Honda was always a reference bike for everybody and for sure the Honda/Casey combo was awesome and spectacular and we all enjoyed it. So, relax and enjoy the motogp if you can.

@AII
be'fore you all gloat over what rossi has said for compliment to MM,let's not forget what he really spewed to CS back in 2006 which was the cause of all this hate.He's learnt alot from Ducati+27 how to be humble.hence saying those nice words.Lord,Ducati is God!

I think it's going to come down to Honda having the better bike and Yamaha having the riders. That's makes it a 50 / 50 split again. which means who has the biggest balls and who has the best set up.

Place your bets time.

I think what we're seeing is two riders that know they will need to improve to get that last bit of speed to catch Jorge and Dani and expect them to "work together" on track more often to drag themselves up to very front.
