MotoGP » Stoner: Rossi has 'done nothing but complain'

Once again, Stoner is the only rider or person in MotoGP to call a spade a spade. Everyone else are too scared to speak their mind and constantly fill us with PR BS. He deserves more respect for his honesty and for the way he races than any other riders in the paddock - at Sachsenring, he could have strolled to a comfortable 2nd place to collect 'good for the championship' 20 points. But he did a brave thing, it didn't come off, but it shows he's got balls of steel...unlike a certain current Ducati rider.

MotoGP » Yamaha confirm Valentino Rossi’s return

"He would have the motitivation to continue in MotoGP now for the right price! What a better motivation than beating both Honda and Yamaha and Rossi with a Ducati again it would be! Posted by Dylan" Stoner is not motivated by fame or money. He could have been the highest paid rider in 2013 if I wanted to, Honda would have paid him a stupid amount. But he chose to walk away. Unfortunately, the passion is gone.

MotoGP » Stoner: A weight off my shoulders

rolling stoner, No one under-appreciates how good Troy Bayliss was. If you want a fascinating read on Casey Stoner and his retirement, read this great blog on Motomatters: "And why does he hate his media commitments quite so vehemently? The truth is that Casey Stoner was never forgiven for the cardinal sin of beating Valentino Rossi in a straight fight."

MotoGP » Casey Stoner: Why I'm leaving MotoGP

I am gutted. MotoGP will never be the same. What a loss. Thanks for the entertainment Casey. To quit at the height of your powers, you could have been the highest paid rider in the world next year and Honda's poster boy. You you made a decision from the heart. It takes great courage to walk away from it all - the fame, money and the show that was large part of your life. My respect for you has grown 100x.

MotoGP » Stoner expects evenly-matched Le Mans

Burgess has dismissed commentary that a supposedly radical seamless shift Honda gearbox is an advantage that will guarantee race wins. Stoner will do that all by himself. "It is not rocket science," "Honda haven't done anything special except hire a new rider (Stoner)," Burgess said. "And I don't understand the fuss on the Honda gearbox -- it is totally standard engineering these days"
