MotoGP » Stoner leaves door ajar to MotoGP return


Nicho last time I checked no one forced Casey to get married or have kids. Also look a Colin Edwards 83 yo, 2 kids and wife and clutches on anything in MotoGp for grim death because he LOVES it. As for leaving because it was being dummed down easy for Casey to say, a full prototype class would mean 4 bikes plus Ducati 1.5 seconds back. Also this coming from the great Australian who was approach by the organisers of PI to do a 30 sec piece to camera while @ PI and refused to promote his home GP WTF. And sorry the reference to Simoncelli is hypocritical.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner set for V8 Supercar deal?


@Bo I am not the first and this includes professional commentators, ex racers etc to observe that Stoner wants super clean passing etc, like Lorenzo which is why it was these leading the spray at Simo (RIP). It will be interesting to see Lorenzos view of Marquez who doesn't mind "aggressive" riding. As for V8 Supercar there is paintswapping often so it is more how he will react rather than the other drivers, which is not to question his skills purely his mentality. As for Rossi wining a race or consistently standing on the dias you may be right but it sounds like what you want rather than the likely reality.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner set for V8 Supercar deal?


Stoner does not seem to like the close racing as others have mentioned. Equally, there are a number of fiery characters in V8s who don't pull their punches (pity Skaifie aint still there) so I don't expect that Casey will be able to shoot his mouth off without getting a blast back. As for on the track all I can say is I think it will be an education. But I would pay a large amount to watch Rossi at the mountain that would be gold...

MotoGP » Ducati won't ditch Desmodromic system


@Oops mate didn't you get the memo the only acceptable viewpoint is that Rossi has no idea about what makes a winning bike and that the Yam situation in 2004 was all Yam and the situation with Duc was all Rossi. See if it wins it is the manufacturer if it loses it is Rossi. As for Stoner, in 2010 he had 5 DNFs as Yam and Honda marched on. Testing is testing but I am confident that while he would have done better than Rossi on the Duke in 2011 and 2012 in 2012 particularly he would not have won a race, Yam but particularly Honda had improved markedly pushing the Ducs further down the order. And with Stoner his agreeable gutsy riding left him with a buggered ankle on a more user friendly bike imagine what would have happened on the Duc (and people wonder why Rossi didn't push it).

MotoGP » Ducati set to kick-start post-Rossi era


@TalentFan once agains a rather skewed interpretation. By all accounts it was him or me because they sought to cut his wage to give to JL after having won back to back WC. And as for running scared, back to back in 2008 and 9 against JL, Dani and Casey (only rider to defend title in 800cc). in 2010 the year he ran scared he won the first race of the season, dislocated shoulder before second race came 3rd and second in the next leaving him second and nine points behind JL, then fell off bike broke leg (season over). Came back in record time and won in Malaysia and came 3rd ahead of CS who had an upset tummy. Yep scared of JL he was.

MotoGP » Ducati set to kick-start post-Rossi era


As for Rossi walking away. How many times did Ducati promise parts only to delay by a considerable margin and then there was the debacle at testing where they didn't even have a replacement ECU suspending testing all togehter. Compare this then to Honda who brought multiple frames for Casey and Dani to try early to mid season due to a tyre switch which Dani then used to hand everyone else (inc Casey who can ride around anything) their rsays. Mate I don't know about you but I would have been on to Carmelo also. And it was not just money to my mind it was clear that Ducati felt they new best. If they had really wanted to change then they 5 year since their WC to do it. Also I think the brining in of a German to oversee design says much about Audi's confidence in Duc to right their own boat.

MotoGP » Ducati set to kick-start post-Rossi era


MD mate you have absolutely not evidence to suggest that persevering with the CF frame would have netted any advances they had 2 years with Casey and one with Rossi and under both it got worse and worse as the others wit their Alu frames marched on. Having a frame where the rear and front wheels are not connected via a frame to me always spells disaster As the capacity issue engineering confirms that for a given capacity more cylinders produces more power hence why an four will produce more than a twin and a V12 more than a 6 of the same capacity (all other things being equal). The limit should be set at 1000 and everybody brings their best game. Tradition is for suckers.

MotoGP » Rossi: Stoner 'started to hate me' after Laguna 2008


As for Stoner better on the Duc, overall he was able to ride the Duc better, but as shown, 10,6,4,3 (with 5 DNFs in final year). I still maintain extrapolated out and given the improvements of Honda especially this year (Pedro 7 wins most in his career), and they efforts to improve the bike that wins for Stoner would have been just as elusive. As for the testing you had a guy who had ridden the bike to one coming in cold. However I also think Rossi when "Effa diz, this bika fkd I no breaka anuda bone for Duca". And Duca cannot or will not revise their bike which is why Stoner left. As for stoner saying you shoulda seen the trellis well he would say that. a 40% drop in wins the following yr would indicate it was more than just stoner in 2007.
