MotoGP » Honda decided against Stoner MotoGP return?


Emotion wanted him back...logic dictated the better option. I am a Rossi fan but had tons of respect for Stoner (even if I disagreed with his reasoning about the 2008 Laguna battle). If he came back and ended up 8th or worst....the vultures on here would not have cared that he had not ridden competitively for over 2 seasons and that he did not know the 2 tracks that he would have to contest. They would all act like he never left and should be competing to best Rossi and Marquez.... Good decision...but would have loved to see him come back

MotoGP » Rossi sets rostrum target in Texas


Reasonable goal in light of past performances and issues. He has not had a chance at this track to evaluate his real strength yet. Last year he had tyre issues but looked pretty good up til then... Anyway we all know that if he can he will go or it. However logically and realistically Rossi and most sensible fans also realize the mountain that is MM at this particular track...I am a Rossi fan but for sure if I was a betting man, my money would be on MM. Dovi was on the podium last year and he no has better weapon at his disposal with concessions... If he is within a couple seconds of MM at the end and on the podium..Rossi and fans have every reason to be optimistic about a 10th title possibility this year.. Go Rossi! Go Lorenzo! Go Dovi! and Go MM!!...Iannone could be the shocker this year!!!

If you believe Stoner would have been on the podium much less beat Rossi.. Short of a mechanical or crash... You have more "blind" faith in Stoner than his own former boss would worked with him since 2007 even at Ducati when it was a POS.... I will even bet money that although Stoner was interested to ride he eventually agreed with Suppo because he knew how ungrateful MotoGP fans were. Some would be happy to see him back on track without judging his results...most would be waiting to stick a fork in his back if he underperform...which Suppo and Stoner obviously came to the conclusion would be the case because of "the cons" His return might have been possible if it were at 2 familiar tracks to him...

TheHorseWithNoName:
Garry: I don't blame him.....
Your pathetic h@te has impaired you ability to read. The story seems to point to stoner being keen to ride. Don't forget this is a rider who beat Rossi more often than Rossi beat him, while spending most of his time riding the pos ducati.
Not sure why you are mad at the previous poster....yes Stoner had an interest to ride...Suppo and Stoner took the decision not to because his return would not have been judged as just for fun and people would have a pound of flesh if he were to finish off the podium which is almost certain... Livio Suppo said so....Stoner has no experience of these tracks and he has barely ridden this new bike...or any competitive bike for that matter for over 2 season...neither expected a competitive result hence the decision...

"He still would get better results than the rider they got anyways. So the argument doesn't hold water to me." The results would not be compared to Aoyama's result. Casey would be expected to perform at a very high level...where Aoyoma would get Kudos for finishing top 10...Casey would be crucified for finishing outside top 5... a very real possibility considering he does not even know the track nor has had much time on the bike. Casey would want to do it for fun and to see where he is at after so long away...he would be ok with top 7 but would want more...problem is the fans would not let him live down any position worst than 5th...and some would slate him for that. This is why Suppo said they talked and decided against it. PS. MM would have zero concern about Stoner...particularly at COTA where MM seem to have a certain love affair with this track!

UserM4: Btw, remember Valencia 2006, Troy Bayliss rode a wildcard Ducati for injured Sete Gibernau and won the race! #anythingcanhappen
Really??? Come on.... Troy also was the WSBK Champion at the time... meaning he was in the best shape of his life and riding competitively for the entire year, plus he had 2 years of MotoGP experience under his belt on the ducati as well.... Stoner has not competed on a motorcycle in over 2 seasons!!!! and almost every lap/race record has fallen since he last competed by MM and others....and you expect he will come back and win??? WOW....

vlady: So, why suppo thinks that aoyama will do better?? Stoner can practice on playstation or other virtual machine.. Copy ME's settings.. Or something..
He does not think that....jeeezz! Honda and Aoyoma will look great if he finishes in the top 10....Honda and Casey will be slammed and slated if Casey finishes 6th or 7th...better than Aoyoma but not better than his own reputation!!!! "Cons outweigh the Pros" because he would not perform up to expectation due to lack of track time, fitness and new bike....5th or lower would not have been enough for Stoner....and the fans would not let Honda or Casey forget it!! it already started with fans talking about MM is worried about Stoner (talk about expectation and reputation)....and he is not even riding in the race!! Could you imagine if he ended up 10th in the race? They would burn him at the stake! So Suppo and Stoner said "ok not a good idea"

The above statement is probably why Suppo told Casey not to return... because of that unrealistic outlook by both fans for and against him. What ever he accomplishes, which would most likely be outside of the top 5, he will be stabbed and poked as a loser by many and the expectation of wins and podiums from a retired champ is not realistic...hell Stoner even said he was going to "begin" training for the 8 hr Suzuka scheduled for JULY!!!!!...which probably means he is not in racing shape for MotoGP...this weekend... As great as his return would be...PS I want him to ride because he does not have the burden of pressure with me and it would be effing great to see him on track again...but let's just say he could only surprise me because in this field and at COTA where even Smith seems quick and Cal was pretty dang good on the Tech 3 as well, I would be surprised and happy for him if he placed higher than 7th.... just an opinion

MotoGP » ‘Concessions’ continue in MotoGP 2016


“In 2016 a manufacturer achieving six Concession Points in dry or wet conditions will immediately lose the right to test with contracted riders and will lose all concessions from the following season. "In general the concessions will be easier to get (no podiums in 2016 = full concessions for the next season), but easier to lose." These 2 statements should alleviate your fears. 6 points and with immediate effect they will lose the unlimited testing with contracted riders. That is only 2 wins in wet or dry or 3 second places, easier to get if they fail but easier to lose.. I think this is an excellent compromise even though I still think the wins for loss of concessions should only be if accomplished in the dry.
