Quote from Stoner on his retirement announcement, "And except from my competitors around me, they are the only ones that give respect to each other. ". What Casey has always said, and shown, is that repect among the riders themselves is there. Many times he has said he hoped that the Ducati improved, not for Ducati's sake but for the spectacle of MotoGP and having Valentino competitive. Same when he expressed hid frustration with CRT. De Puniet should be up near the front, not battling for 13th. Of course the Stoner haters say he is not popular in the paddock, which is a load of ******** and certainly not true amongst the fellow riders. Fact is, Casey is just as thrilled with Rossi's ride as any fanboy and the mutual respect has always been there.
