Casey Stoner: "I didn't expect it to be honest and he's been riding well. But already a few times last weekend he's been looking behind and when he sees you coming he starts to accelerate to get on the racing line and I have nowhere to go.

Then, Stoner rammed the rookie... That is why Abraham felt the need to go to the Repsol garage to confront Stoner... Yes, Abraham was intending to get a tow... But in order to do so you have to build up speed, and time it with the bike you intend to draft off of by letting it pass you, and then lining up with said bike...

Only instead of going by, Stoner rammed him... Honestly, Stoner is so great he can create his own lines, after all the Ducati taught him that...

"EXCUSES" he should write a book, "A Million and One Excuses" by Casey Stoner...

It's Abraham who rammed into Stoner. Not the other way around. Abraham who unprofessional when he could simply follow fast rider to learn the line. If you want to learn something from others, ask first before go out to the track. You can't simply just prepare you gas pull it when the rider passed by. What happened if the rider suddenly slowing down on the brake for whatever reason?

How Stoner learn or figure out his line?

Has Stoner get a tow from anyone to learn his lines?

Why Abraham can't figure out his own lines without getting a tow?

Stoner dosn't own the track, but he thinks he does.
I don't know how many racers are out there making comments, but if you want to lap faster you have to try & hang onto the back of a faster rider to get your speed / confidence / track knowledge up.
Abraham gets out of Stoner's way, but then Stoner blocks him when he is in Abrahams way. I know Stoner dosn't like to be followed, but that's racing / practicing / qualifying.
No wonder fans don't like him.

Testing, practice, qualifying, even the race itself, Casey can't deal with anyone being around him.

I wonder how long it'll be before we see a 'Baby on Board' sign hanging off the back of the number 27 Honda.

The issue is not Abraham attempting to get a tow from Stoner... The incident which Abraham takes issue with, is the fact that Stoner came from behind and deliberately rammed him, causing fairing damage to both bikes...

That is the second time this season, Stoner has maliciously lashed out at a fellow pilot for a perceived affront to his person...

Stoners conduct is not only unprofessional but it is also dangerous. At least with Simoncelli its a true accident, unlike Stoner who does it on purpose...

Karel should have done a Melandri when Stoner pulled that stunt... zoom to 17 seconds to see how do deal with bullies on the track

Karel's right to try and get a tow and try and learn something, nothing wrong with that. Just as there's nothing wrong with Casey letting people know he's not up for handing out free lessons to anyone. It's the rider behind's responsibility to not hit the rider in front and if you're testing it doesn't make sense to be right up someone's chuff because they could shut off at anytime they think they know what's going on with the bike/tyres/tested parts, they're not racing, they're testing.

So, IMO, Karel got a fright playing with the big boys and didn't like it. Casey'd just come in the pits, got off his bike to be confronted with an upset Karel having a go at him, how would you react? I'd tell him to go dry his eyes and worry about his own pace.
