Australia MotoGP: Casey Stoner dominates to take championship

Casey Stoner was on dominant form to win his home race at Phillip Island with a 2.2 second lead and secure the 2011 MotoGP world championship. The Repsol Honda rider made a strong start and led throughout an intermittently wet race to take the championship win with a 65 point lead over Jorge Lorenzo. The Spanish Yamaha Factory Racing rider was...

Sad Ducati

In all this Rossi/Stoner rubbish there is one thing that really make me loose respect for Ducati. No where on there website or any press releases I have read is there any congratulations to Stoner. Other manufactures and riders have paid the respect, shame ducati are so small minded.

Boring Boring Boring

Did I miss something on Sunday or did I not watch the world’s most boring world motorcycling champion winning the world’s smallest and most Boring MOTO GP race ever with 9 finishers, winning the most boring World Championship ever.  I am not in any way saying Casey is not a good rider, he is up there with the best of them, but let’s keep it in context. Really small fields with only two fully funded competitive manufactures do not make a worthwhile championship.  Moto 2 is now the real star of the Moto GP scene featuring good racing with a diversified field and that’s what has been keeping the MOTO GP circus going this year. Let’s not forget that what we are supporting is not just motorcycle racing but a global entertainment business. Stoners,  and others, just don’t understand this aspect of what they do.

 Why is it boring well besides the above, when I watch a race I expect to see close competitive racing and if it is a bit one sided to be entertained the way Rossi did at his peak.  I seem to remember him passing his rivals in impossible places just because he could, didn’t he once pass Max Biaggi after following him for a few laps  in front of a Grandstand of filled with Biaggi fans just because that was the place to make the greatest impact.  In a reference to Rossi’s quote today bring on the snow, would Stoner even understand that comment? The only person to come close to really entertaining has been Simoncelli who between Honda, Dorna and the Health and Safety crowd has had much of the fire forced out of him.  Next year’s regulation changes had better be good and work well, but a Fireblade engine against a full 1000 works Honda – I don’t think so.   Moto GP will not be getting my hard earned cash through the gates next year.  The only thing that often makes watching Moto GP coverage worthwhile and entertaining is the Moody/Rider commentary on Eurosport.  I really fear for the future of the sport, or is the really entertaining World Superbikes the way to go.:wacko:

I seem to remember one of Rossi's most heralded races was at this very track in 2003 where he did very little overtaking... in fact he set pole & won it by over 15 seconds in what must, for you, have been one of the most boring races in history... a shame the major overtake of note was a dangerous one under a yellow flag earning him a 10 second penalty... perhaps you'd enjoy it more if Stoner was equally as foolish.

Blame game

Aquarius mate seeing as how Casey had been asking for changes that were never forthcoming and the Ducati front end has always been the problem on the 800cc bike then the blame lies squarely at the feet of Preziosi. Or at least it does up to the point where they started making changes at the behest of ze yellow peril. From that point on Rossi must take a fair share of the blame.

Perhaps the vague front end is a part of Ducati dna? We know that Yamaha always have a bike that turns better than the others and Honda have a bike that out accelerates everything that's not the space shuttle.

I wondered what had happened to The Pog. How different history could have been if he hadn't lost his mojo. He was on the grid at a gp a few years ago (probably Misano) and he looked happy (I think he was working as a personal trainer).
