MotoGP » Honda decided against Stoner MotoGP return?

Yearby...most definitely. Comebacks never work. Stoner fans, both of them, should be happy with the memories of him that they have now. Stoner haters....should be relieved that he doesn't come back. To make my position clear, I am not fussed either way but I do agree that the cons outweigh the positives of a return. If, however, Casey wanted to come back next year then that's more than acceptable. I'd be surprised though.

MotoGP » Honda decided against Stoner MotoGP return?

Why on earth would a retired rider be allowed back anyway. Who is next on the list Spencer, Lawson, Phil Read ? If Casey, or anyone else, came in and scored points all that would do is spoil the final points table. If he did badly and couldn't break into the top 15 then what would Honda gain out of that ? All speculation.....anyway Stoner said only 3 weeks ago that he will never come back to MotoGP. (remind yourself of the reasons he gave for retiring, all those reasons are still there!)

MotoGP » Honda decided against Stoner MotoGP return?

bikenut.....I do realise that. Honda chose against him so I see it as a non story anyway. I can understand his fans wanting him back, and I can understand a few posters wanting to stick the knife in but it is difficult to believe that Casey really considered a couple of rides anyway. When he retired he gave a long list of reasons why. All those reasons are still there, and some are worse, so it would need a massive climb down on Stoners' part to even think about it. As I said, maybe next season would be more likely for a full comeback, but then he also said he would not consider riding 'dumbed down' bikes. A non story blown up by and Casey's fans. I heard a rumour that Gardner turned them down as well.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Ducati has done an amazing job

Realist & Joesky.......can I comment that negative things can sometimes have a positive outcome. I feel that it can safely be said that Rossi and JB's failure to improve the bike was what made the higher-ups think differently. So that is probably the input that Rossi had on future iterations after he left. Do you think, like me, that Rossi would have stayed longer to see the project through had he been a younger man with more years to play with ? Rossi, Dovi, and Iannone and Gigi ?? There's a thought, lots of potential podiums there.

MotoGP » Helmet issue 'cost Lorenzo chance of victory'

Logically speaking if Jorge had vision problems which adversely affected his projected lap times, and his times show that he did not slow down........then the only conclusion to draw is that up to the lap where the lining slipped, Jorge must have been holding back. Without entering into whether he had helmet problems or not, it is difficult to believe that he was holding steady up to that point.
