Interview with Casey Stoner

It is something that will let the fans learn more about what goes on behind the scenes and what I think about various subjects. It isn't something that I would have done before, but thanks to Repsol I am going to give it a go this year and see how it works out. I think that it will be something interesting for the fans to read.

Q:
The old rider saying is that you lose a tenth of a second per lap when you become a father. Do you agree with that?

Casey Stoner:
They also say that you slow down when you get married, but in my first year of marriage I won the title and when I found out that we were having a baby I won it a second time. I don't think that it is the case.

Q:
If one of your children were to say to you in the future "Dad, I want to be a rider!" how would you respond?

Casey Stoner:
[Laughing] We would definitely teach them from a young age, but the decision to be a rider or not will be completely down to them.

If by having a child, slows you down by 1/10th of second, then Casey doesn't have to worry until his sixth child based on the Sepang test.....
