While there's no doubt Stoner was an excellent rider, the Ducati at that time was much closer to the Yamaha and Honda in development. He also had tires tailor made for the bike which helped him a lot. The control Bridgestone used now is proven not to be Ducati friendly and Honda and Yamaha have evolved much more than the Ducati. Stoner was wise enough to leave the Ducati at the right time.
