If you want to compare riders of different ages you need to look at the results they got taking age into consideration. So from the age of 21 to 27 (when Stoner retired). Rossi won 5 WC and came 2nd the other two years. During the same age range Stoner won 2 WC and came 2nd once.
Rossi is on a different level. Then you take into consideration the fact that Rossi has won 125 and 250 WC + he came 2nd in his first year in 500s and was the last rider to win the 500 WC. For someone to think that Stoner was a better rider is completely ridiculous.
Stoner won on a Ducati with a big speed and tyre advantage. When he won with Honda both Lorenzo and Pedrosa were injured, that championship was a relative walk in the park.
Then Stoner bad mouths motogp and f***s off to play with cars. Good riddance I say.
Rant over. AHHHHHH.
