A conversation between HRH and her personal adviser.
PA Your majesty I believe a young AUStralian called Casey Stoner really deserves a gong for his services to sport.
HRH And what sport would that be.
PA motorcycle racing ma'am, he won two WCs.
HRH ONLY two we've had British racers who won more WCs than that who received nothing.
PA That's correct ma'am but he won a WC on a DUCATI.
HRH What is so special about that.
PA The reason ma'am is no one else can ride the beast. For two years they had an Italian chap called Rossi on it
A former NINE times WC and they paid him a fortune.
HRH And tell me how did he do.
PA Well ma'am he did get a second and a third, Casey in his 4 year tenure got 23 wins and many podiums, ma'am I believe had Rossi got half of those wins he would have received a Papal knighthood.
HRH The Ducati is that hard to ride.
PA It is ma'am it's a proper beast.
HRH Perhaps we should give him another gong, for bravery above and beyond the call of duty. lol.

At least there's one Brit who knows a champion motor cycle rider when she sees one. Well done your Highness.

The sport isn't the same without Stoner around antagonising all the Rossi fans. I'd give anything to see him make a comeback on a Ducati and win his first race back. He's the only rider on earth capable of doing it. Wouldn't that throw a cat amongst the pigeons?

What a load of tosh!!! If it only takes someone winning a world title twice to receive this type of honour, then what about all the others that have done the same????!!! Also, if Stoner makes a comeback with Ducati then he will prove what a big hypocrite he is as he slated Ducati when he left them and blamed their treatment of him as being the reasons. Stoner walked and slagged off MotoGP in the process so he is best staying away in my eyes. Anyway, who needs Casey Stoner when we have Marc Marquez !!

And, who really thinks Stoner would want to race with Marc Marquez ? Stoner wouldn't be able to stand it when Marquez went flying past and would have to rack his brain for all his usual excuses! Nah, we have seen the last of Casey Stoner - comebacks never work anyway so he would be a fool to even contemplate it!!
