TalentFan... nakamoto talks with casey regularly on the phone and is waiting his time to give him another offer , he is a very smart patient fellow who understands stoner well , this testing opportunity came out of the blue by co incidence of the test riders crash and at perfect timing when stoner was missing riding , it makes nakamoto's plan that little more achievable by getting him on the bike sooner than expected , its no pr stunt , honda are keeping stoner close to get him genuinely back in there team the second stoner should decide he wants it,
but its yet to be seen if stoner ever feels the need to race again.

HE SHOULD NOT BE GIVEN CHANCE TO RIDE AGAIN, RACE DIRECTION SHOULD COME INTO ACT, RETIRING AND COMING BACK AGAIN, TO SPOIL THE FUN WE HAVING, THATS ONE PART OF IT - other part let him come will see what all happens as he showed strength wen vale was weak - its a waste

Basically honda is finalising its 2014 kit well ahead of everyone else if Stoner starts working on it as unofficial test rider. Thats what i meant by honda going around testing rules. They are lucky to have Stoner do this if it is for the long run. The only thing that will throw it off balance is Dorna and their rule changes.

I know Nakamoto is a big fan of CS.... but a bit surprised that Honda would be so keen to tempt him back in MotoGP fully.

Not because CS isn't worthy - far from it. Rather because they have the 2nd coming already in the personable Marquez, and possibly the most consistent and reliable points machine that is Pedrosa already.

Also, Honda seem determined to prove its the bike that does the winning and not the pilot. So having CS who is widely accepted as having THE most natural mercurial talent (reinforced hugely by VR's stint at Ducati) on their bike taking the plaudits seems a bit strange.

What a drama girl this dude is. I bet Rossi is laughing after his outburst on how much he hated MotoGP's direction. (Which is why Stoner quit)

All of a sudden he watched the Laguna Seca Race saw a satellite bike hold 2nd and now wants in after watching MM move on Rossi. Although it was ugly move and he cut the track way more then Rossi did against Stoner.

The point is this guy was talking crap now is thanking Honda for the opportunity. Must be running short on funds now having a baby huh Stoner? I hope to never see him back on the track because of his antics. Learn from the Doc!

Rossi FOREVER!

Maybe the test ride will reignite his passion to test himself against the best again. He could make it a four way fight for the title next year with JL,DP and MM.We can only hope.Can't see it happening though.
