MotoGP » Honda decided against Stoner MotoGP return?


Yearby23.....again. The 07 Ducati had advantages that only Stoner's riding could extract. When the bike progressively lost those 'advantages' ( Yam and Honda caught up ) no matter what Casey did he couldn't regain his dominance. Nicky's performance stayed steady (against the rest of the field not comparing him to Casey, was my point ) The dominance returned with a vengeance on the Honda, made Dani and the rest look a bit silly. Which is why I was, and am, so impressed.

Rick180268........Casey, himself, said that his 07 bike went round corners OK. He also said that he held other riders up in the corners to maximise his speed advantage down the straight. The reason he ran the bike with minimum traction control was because any more stopped him steering with rear. Meanwhile his team mate (and others) admitted that they lacked the bravery required to ride like Stoner did.

Yearby23....I have respect for your fierce defending of Stoner but it has always puzzled me that none of his fans rate his Honda Title as higher than his Ducati Title. His 07 Title was a combination of the Ducatis' quirks gelling with Casey's riding style. The proof is the fact that his team mate was nowhere that year. Further proof is the fact that as the bike went downhill so did Casey, whereas Nicky didn't. In 2010 Nicky was ahead of Stoner in the Championship for half the season. Casey's Honda World Title was a far more convincing indicator of his abilities and it is surprising that neither of his fans noticed.
