MotoGP » Stoner set to retire between Doohan and Hailwood


@Shamu Feel free to rant as much as you like, this is the internet after all, but your diatribe is misdirected. I know this will come as a shock to you, but I am not Stoner's mate. In fact it is you that has a relationship with Casey Stoner and that is why the news about his position in history is upsetting you. Was it something he said? You can feel free to discuss your problem here. After all you are among friends.

MotoGP » Stoner set to retire between Doohan and Hailwood


Just to repeat myself. The 'championship', that some posters seem to think is so important, is a result of applying whatever the ruling bodies formula of the day is. In 2006 the field was decimated at the 7th round of the year and Hayden went on to win the 'championship'. Was he the best rider of 2006? In any case, whatever fries your burger, but do not think that we all subscribe to your view. I, for one, care about race wins. I am not interested in who wins the championship. That is just some arbitrary points system.

MotoGP » Stoner: Wait and see...


You can't argue with statistics, is that what the argument was? Well here are some. And now for your enjoyment, I once again dig up my old posts . . . Rossi vs Stoner - Head to Head - Part 6 2007 to 2010 In head to head, when both of them started the race on factory bikes, but only to the end of 2010 as Rossi is scared to ride the Ducati fast, for fear of having an accident. Therefore, it may not be fair on the Chosen One to be expected to compete under such harsh conditions. Stoner defeated Rossi 33 times and Rossi defeated Stoner 30 times. As usual my posts will not receive a response because facts cannot be argued with. Best to say that once upon a time Rossi won something, and that the Ducati that Stoner rode was not only better than everything in the field but it also had the most traction control.

MotoGP » Fresh hope for Valentino Rossi?


Burgess has reported in the past how they lucked into the setting that Rossi likes with the M1. That being the seat height set very high. This is what Rossi appears to be referring to. The Ducati however has this low attitude and this was reported to be the case by Alan Cathcart a long time ago. All this talk about binning the engine seems ridiculous to me, but I am not an engineer. Preconceptions do not lead to objective thinking. Stoner has indicated that had he remained with Ducati he would have preferred the 'screamer' engine, if you can consider that such a thing even exists with a ninety degree V-four. In any case, Rossi needs to start with a clean slate and forget about how to ride and setup a Yamaha. Maybe he is at that point.
