Le Mans MotoGP: Casey Stoner fined after de Puniet punch

Casey Stoner has been hit with a 5000 Euro fine (£4350) fine after he punched French rider Randy de Puniet following an incident in the MotoGP Warm-up session at Le Mans this morning. Stoner was on a fast lap when he had to slow dramatically having encountered de Puniet’s Ducati GP11 on the approach to the second chicane. TV replays clearly showed...

isn't punching someone (and I use that term loosely given it looked like more of a love tap) actually taking action as opposed to moaning about it??? Anyway he's french, you don't need an excuse to belt a Frenchman ;)

Would this be the same Casey Stoner

that marched into race direction, along with two other big girls blouses, to complain about dangerous riding earlier in the weekend?

Fine !!

If Stoner had known that he would have to pay a fine of 5000 euros, I bet he wished he kicked the shit out RDP instead of a handbag slap on the shoulder. Value for money and all of that. Ha.

typical of MCN

Keep the negative Stoner story on your front page, rather than one of the numerous other great stories of the weekend such as, for example, Stoner winning the race by a country mile or Simo getting a ride-through for taking on Pedrosa. MCN's online coverage of MotoGP is so slow and behind the eight-ball at times that it's just tragic.

Anyway a great weekend for Stoner in my books - win a race and punch a Frenchman!

Boxing Kangaroo

One minute CS is moaning about reckless riders and safety the next he's punching other riders out on track! Incredible, they should have banned the boxing kangaroo from the race.

Tiresome

I tell you a word I am getting tired of hearing, "accidental". He rammed his bike into the other bike and sent him flying, but it was accidental. He tried to get off the racing line, were he was playing with his..., but it was accidental. Sounds like these guys are not professional bike riders but a bunch of airheads who apparently make no decisions about their actions, because it was accidental. You run somebody over in your car, you didn't mean to do it, that doesn't stop the police from charging you with a crime. MotoGP a race with no rules and no responsibility. Only the most sadistic amongst us mean to do harm to others, but we all make choices and those choices can result in penalties in the real frigging world.

Yes he complains

about reckless riders and all of that talking never gets anything done about reckless riders, so in a moment after narrowly averting a disastrous situation, Stoner takes matters into his own hands and lets RDp know he really f#4ked up. Stoner gets fined, race direction as usual don't do what they should, that being fined them both. But if race direction ever did its job, the riders would be completely aware that dangerous riding, dawdling on the racing line and all of that cr@p would be dealt with swiftly, nobody would feel the need to take anything into their own hands and we wouldn't have to hear complaints about serious neglect of issues regarding safety.
