MotoGP » Stoner chasing first Indy podium

@ Nick636 You could put Casey on a Satellite bike, any satellite bike, and he'd qualify on the front 2 rows, and finish top 4 or bin it. He's that talented and that committed to winning. Er, you only have to look at his first year on the 990cc LCR Honda. IIRC he did podium on it and he certainly put it on Pole at Qatar ... and this in the era of overnight specials for factory teams and he in his first year (and LCR's first year), second string bike and third string tyres (I have heard he pretty much had his pick of what was left after exeryone else had made their selections). I believe that is STILL LCR's best premier class season to date.

MotoGP » Brno MotoGP test times - Monday 6pm

@ King Kenny AFAIAA, this is Honda's 2nd test - so how he could have ridden it three times is interesting. Pedro missed the first test because of his injuries, either way 1 sec is too much when Pedro was so dominant in Qualifying and practice. Oh, and just to add, the Yamaha thing is why I only compared the two Yamaha riders, not Yamaha and Honda - and RawDog's earlier post is also relevant too.

MotoGP » Stoner Czechs out at Brno, Simoncelli podium

Its amazing how many people can't work out the difference between being a great rider (which is about skill and the ability to do something better than your contemporaries) and having a brilliant historical record (which is as much about being in the right place at the right time and the depth of competition around you). No wonder politicians get away with so much when so many have such poor logic and reasoning skills. (edit follows) I should add there isn't much in it skill wise and Pedrosa is probably there too. Rossi has the best record of the modern era, but he is NOT as good a rider as either Stoner or Lorenzo, and if you cannot or will not see that truth then it won't change anything anyway. It will still be the case whether you accept it or not.

MotoGP » 'Recharged' Rossi ready for Brno

@some1 I don't know if you are being deliberately misleading with that Min Honda wins = 0 for Stoner or not? FFS it was LCR's first year in MotoGP, it was Stoner's first year in MotoGP. He BEAT Pedrosa to a pole (and Pedrosa was on a REPSOL FACTORY bike). He was on THIRD Pirelli string tyres at the time of the overnight specials and he STILL managed an honest not gifted Podium - which is more than Rossi has managed so far in '11 or even looks like managing. In fact, that rookie year was LCR's best MotoGP season to date. I think Stoner's Rookie year was even better than Spies, and I doubt even you (or TDS) could argue that LCR is a better team than Tech 3! Stoner doesn't need silly exaggerated distorted facts to make his case - it stands for itself, unless you are as deluded and in denial as TDS
