MotoGP » Official: Casey Stoner returns to Ducati


I'll caveat my below statement first of all by saying that I think it is brilliant Casey is making roads back to Moto GP. He was an extreme, raw, and amazing talent. However, the Ducati got progressively worse when he was on it. And even though Honda love him, for obvious reasons, the bike was pretty crap at the start of this year, when he was their test rider Just saying. A much better rider, than a test rider. Obviously, some people think he is totally infallible though and will vehemently disagree. So, you know, thats just like your opinion, man. Saying that though, If he can get some wildcards, and maybe a contract to race in a while, that would be amazing. Would be great to see him on the grid again. A wild card in PI would obviously be amazing next season!

MotoGP » Official: Casey Stoner returns to Ducati


@asefi Fair enough. I wasn't slating Casey though. I just think he rides a bike in a way that no one else can. He did such a good job on Ducati, Ducati probably thought, oh, we'll get a world champion like Rossi to jump on, and we'll win consistently again. However, it was Stoners unseen ability which hid the ugliness of the bike. Same with Honda. They developed a bit of a pig, Casey rode around it, they thought it was fine, but it wasn't. Hence, why I think he is a better rider than a test rider, but, in many ways, thats a compliment.

MotoGP » Jarvis: Enough of the polemics, let's move on


I think Yamaha did, for the most part, a fantastic job this year. The last few races have thrown up some ugliness, but I guess this is what happens when you pit massive ego's against each other. I've always said that whoever wins a championship deserves it. I think JLO would have won the championsip without Marquez's influence so I think Rossi needs to suck it up a little bit, but I can understand his frustrations with Marc. Roll on next year, Rossi's final year in Moto GP im guessing, unless he announces an early retirement in the off season. I hope to see him win it, (although I would say he is currently the fourth favourite to do so). Hopefully we see most of the talking done on the track.

MotoGP » Lorenzo denies title 'pact' with Marquez


@Giveaway Fair enough. I've been quite critical of Rossi since Sepang. Mostly because of his expectation for people to step aside. That is an arrogant expectation of Rossis and this is what disappointed me most. It is especially arrogant to expect the current world champion to just step aside. As if Rossi would ever reciprocate. However, I think most people who were on the fence, are now swaying back in favour of Rossi because Marc and JLO have not covered themselves in glory either.

I cannot argue what you've said. We agree.
Ha. Careful now. I think Crash might.....crash. People can't agree on here.
