MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test for Ducati?


Codger: Painless.....I'll have a piece of your humble pie. I thought that Rossi and JB would tame the Ducati. Like them, and most of us, we didn't how far that Ducati had deteriorated since 2007. At least we found out how hard Stoner had been trying on it.
I think virtually everyone believed the hype around Rossi and the Ducati and of course Stoner by that stage was crashing out as often as he was winning so Stoner/Honda and Rossi/Ducati results were astounding.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test for Ducati?


classicmotof1: The only reason why teams would want him as simply a dummy rider because number one, he is cheap. Hell, he would even do it for free believe me. Second and most importantly, stoner is the only rider ever dumb enough to push beyond what little ability he has. When honda says, "we want you to crash". Casey answers, "You want the slide or the ragdoll?"
Just mention Stoner and some of the Rossi fans start to choke, very hard to rationalise Rossi's poor performance on the Ducati, I struggled with it and I don't even like the doctor

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test for Ducati?


H4TE: Stoner was fast, but in 2007 the Ducati was the best bike on track. a bunch of stuff came together to make that year happen. as soon as Honda and Yamaha started making steps with the bridgestones it was over for Ducati, he wasn't "magical" as a lot of people in here seems to think racers and races are about.

MotoGP » Honda postpones Sepang data - again


No doubt that the request to not release has been made, no doubt that the data shows the crash occurred because of an impact to the brake lever but it will not conclusively prove Rossi kicked it unless they also have a camera shot. We saw him look at MM then his leg move out. Coincidence or kick we will never know - nothing new here!

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test for Ducati?


I love motorcycle racing and ALL the riders that compete fairly regardless of what bikes they ride but Stoner and Ducati pairing was a good one for a number of reasons. Definitely the underdog and even when he went to Honda no one really thought he would have an impact - it was all going to be about Valentino on the Ducati and to a lesser extent Lorenzo on the Yamaha........just go back and look at the news reports prior to the end of the year testing.

Codger: Have to be careful here, Casey's fans are very sensitive, and I don't mean the one's that are just using his name to bash Rossi. At the moment it is a non-story. Little more than a rumour, probably something in it but nothing substantiated as yet. We should assume that he won't return to racing because all of the reasons that he gave for retiring are still there. As for testing I cannot see what he could achieve, after all Dani and Marc have wildly different riding styles, requiring different solutions.
Genuine MotoGP fans will be happy to see a proven winner return to the sport, the more real competition the better. It is an advantage in testing to have a rider that can push the bike to the limit regardless of style, then the individual riders can make the call. Most of the test riders are nowhere near this.
