MotoGP » Stoner: We can still improve the bike quite a bit


Aaaah..that's better. Settled down with a nice cold Strongbow after a proper days GRAFT! The ducofhazard seems to get the drift..Tyres could be an achilles for Stoner. Contrary to the rest of the grid he prefers the code 24 tyre, dismissing the bulk of the preference for the #21 tyre by predicting the other riders would come round to his way of thinking once the racing starts and they push a bit harder. This prompted Lorenzo to scoff that Stoner must be a psychic if he could predict how other riders' tyres would react. What he should have said is.. "Casey..you've only done 3/4 lap stints and haven't even experienced the drop-off in performance of the new construction Bridgestone..what makes you the expert pal? This ain't qualifying it's testing and btw, have you sorted that chatter out yet?" Expect HRC to go backwards this year under the direction of Stoner and Pedrosa.

MotoGP » Stoner: We can still improve the bike quite a bit


Haha..take it easy lads. I may not be Caseys biggest fan but, there is no questioning his talent and pace. What I am questioning is his commitment and work ethic..he's an Aussie after-all? The bike has documented issues. Stoner himself said they needed to work harder yet, the lowest lap count of anybody all winter? ONE third distance race simulation at the death? These are valid points are they not? Casey is great when he's happy/winning..let's hope for your sakes he DOES know what he's doing, because if it starts to go a bit pear-shaped, he can't ride around the problems in a RACE and the dummy starts to re-emerge..it will be very interesting indeed. He's odds-on favourite, you should be loving life..just saying I'd think twice before putting my house/kennel on him..and there could well be a few homeless #27ers by November.

MotoGP » Stoner: We can still improve the bike quite a bit


Stoner said the same thing after Sepang II, when the chatter was causing a major concern and it still is. He said they would have to 'work hard' at Jerez to get a handle on the problem. Yesterdays 10 lap sim. was the longesst string of laps he's put together ALL winter, typically he's been doing 3 to 4 laps. When he says WE..I think he must mean Pedrosa and the HRC engineers because it's clear Casey is not a grafter and rides around problems. Doing ONE barely third distance race sim. on the last afternoon of the last day of winter testing is NOT working to fix problems or improve the bike. This kid is a prodigious talent but he's lazy and smug. His skill will be tested come Sundays, as his tyres will be shredded by half distance and the computer will stop him from using the throttle to save his ar5e to save fuel, on this evidence. Last year at Mugello gives us a clue.. HRC MUST be worried by Jorges metronomic race pace and his ability to judge a race.

MotoGP » Stoner topples Lorenzo for testing clean sweep


Hi there Southerner..still got problems with your punctuation I see? LS11 epic?..were you watching the same race as me? To all you guys/gals posting on Stoners 'race simulation' 1:55.240 - lap 30 1:39.411 1:39.285 1:39.491 1:39.753 1:39.845 1:39.872 1:40.113 1:39.777 1:39.645 1:39.781 - lap 40 Drops off a bit towards the end, just like JL said about the new tyres. The race is 27 laps and Caseys simulation was just 10 laps..the longest run he's done all winter. I foresee problems over half distance come Sundays, at least to start with.

MotoGP » Stoner topples Lorenzo for testing clean sweep


@THE FAN.. Crikey! I, for one, will wash my mouth out if indeed I have offended a #27er.. I wonder if when Caseys at home on the farm..when his Dad sets him a task, say, getting some bales of hay from out the shed..I wonder if he gets three out, then two, maybe four next..having a good rest in-between of course..then just before Colin gets back he gets ten out in double quick time, to get a bit of a sweat up, making it look like he's actually done some graft? No offence..just saying.

MotoGP » 'Positive' pace from day two leader Hayden


THE FAN.. That's a good point Pal. AFAIK, Rossi and Hayden have only tested at Sepang and this weekend @ Jerez. Ducati were going to set up a test for Hayden on his own earlier this year, at Jerez, but he had to have some snagging done on the shoulder. I was hoping Rossi would take his place but he had the pin out of the broken leg so, it was just the test team. It does surprise me we haven't seen them out..maybe if todays results are bad, we'll see them sneak one in before Losail?

Aaw..don't be like that a-hole star? Come here and give us a hug..xxx. There, feel better? I had this conversation with some of the #27ers @ MCN.. Where do you think Stoner would have finished up last year if he'd stayed at Ducati, with Rossi on the Yamaha and 4 works Hondas on the grid, say Spies riding for HRC? One or two even convinced themselves Casey could have won it?
