Asked how it felt to have raced for the final time at the legendary Assen circuit, reigning MotoGP champion and joint 2012 leader Casey Stoner gave a glimpse into some of his possible retirement plans.

26-year-old Stoner, who will leave MotoGP at the end of this season, said: "Everyone is going to be asking me how I feel every time I leave a country or track this year.

"I don't think it has to be goodbye forever anyway. I can come and do a track day here. Enjoy myself. Probably look at the track a bit more and enjoy riding it.

"When you're pushing as hard as you can every time you are out on track, you don't really properly enjoy the track and take everything in.

"So I'd say not pushing at 100% I'll enjoy these tracks more.

"One day I might travel the world and follow the GP calendar doing some track days. I don't know yet..."

Stoner won Saturday's race by five-seconds over Repsol Honda team-mate Dani Pedrosa.
