MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test MotoGP Honda

firstly dorna has nothing to do with stoner testing for honda , its no pr master stroke , its simply 4 private tests lined up by honda at there own track motege , there will be no media allowed but they will have their own guys taking footage. there could be any number of reasons why stoner is taking it on and just as many reasons why honda are using stoner , but one thing thats clear is honda's main test rider has broken his pelvis and is out for a bit. another thing is stoner is not under contract with red bull Australia next year at all , it was a one year deal to see if he enjoyed it , apparently he is not enjoying the pr work but only he knows the rest.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test MotoGP Honda

codger , i don't think you realise that the onboards soak up the data that feed the engineers not the rider , the rider only need point out what the bike is doing , how it turns and what he thinks of it in general , the ducati was full of problems and getting them fixed was out of the question , so he had to ride around them , at honda it was the tyres that were causing the bikes problems and he had to ride around them because HRC don't make the tyres , that took a bit of time to be fixed , all in all he is the ultimate rider to test there bikes.

you can guarantee he will give the ultimate feedback for the production racer , its the data he produces by pushing the bike over its limits that give the engineers all they need to understand the bikes full potential and therefore go beyond . i see those production bikes becoming popular after this , there could be a lot in all this for stoner because if the grid can fill up with highly competitive bikes he just may be tempted to come back.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: 'You broke my balls over Stoner pass!'

Guna4699 .... it was those early braking manoeuvres that stoner was unhappy with not the corkscrew that so many claim , they were dangerous because stoner had to keep avoiding riding right through him just as he had to go right past him into the gravel and tip it when he couldn't brake in time , but it doesn't matter because no matter what vale does its called genius , and when someone else does it its called stupid and dangerous.

MotoGP » Yamaha to debut seamless shift gearbox 'soon'

tedG ... you would think that would amount to 2 secs going by mathematics , but racing just doesn't add up that way , unless you are out front with the open road you just might grab 2 secs over a race , but being behind others that .10 will mean nothing when you have ride behind someone and will be lost or even reduced to minus .10 when slowing to avoid hitting , all in all ,10 is only a reference mark , a bike can only navigate a corner so fast and everything depends on what a rider is capable of achieving with his abilities.
