Sepang MotoGP: Casey Stoner not worried by Pedrosa’s hot pace

New MotoGP world champion Casey Stoner said he isn’t worried to be so far behind factory Honda team-mate Dani Pedrosa at the end of the first day of practice for the Malaysian Grand Prix. The Aussie was 0.820s adrift of Pedrosa in typically extreme conditions at Sepang that saw air temperatures hit over 30 degrees, with punishing humidity making it a...

Was He ?

Or Wozi ? Aragon is history. Stoner had already hooked up with Suppo/HRC/GabarinI as had Burgess/Ducati and Rossi. Aragon, Stoner had a snap on the grid. Bashed the handlebar. This is Rossi's problem, THE FEEL IS GONE. Neuro transmission ain't what it used to be. Brain to shoulder to clutch. Blame Preziosi. Fellipo is not the problem. The heiraechy within Ducati and their sponsors clearly are.

Questions remained to be answered. Stoner answered it 2011.

I'm not about to blame any rider for doing the best he could on the day. Stoner bombed in Sepang last year. Hell, he might even eat gravel on Sunday. Hardly likely.

hugelean. Face facts. Without Preziosi/Stoner, you would not have a Ducati on the grid and  Double World Champion to MOAN about. Sure Honda are delighted. Just as Ducati were after Sepang testing for 2007 back in late 2006.

Sorry, but there's no way you can use Casey's results from last year to make him look bad in comparison to Rossi this season.

9 podiums, 3 wins, 4 poles, and 3 fastest laps compared to

1 gifted podium, 1 fastest lap, and a best qualifying postion of 7th(or 6th?) .. Stoner didn't DNF a race twice on the bounce either. Rossi will be lucky to break the 160 point barrier, and finish nearly as much as 3 race wins behind Stoner's 2010 points.

Stoner is responsible for the mess Ducati are in, Rossi and JB are responsible for the mess Ducati are in. The GP11.1 design had nothing to do with Stoner. This was a radically changed bike requestes BY Rossi.

'Stomping about unable to communicate'?

What you do in the privacy of your own home Wosi has nothing to do with the finest rider / crew chief combo in the game. Only Stoner and Gabbarini have been able to find the key to the mystery of the D16.

I think it boils down to something like this.

The Ducati has always been a unique bike.. the 'beast' of the paddock. It obviously needs to be ridden a certain way, and the messiah has been proven a hoax, as Rossi cannot. That's it.

I said this earlier in the season, maybe 5 months ago.. It's a shame about the current situation because if they ever do get the Ducati sorted, it will no longer be a 'unique' bike. It will be a red Yamaha suited to none other than Valentino Rossi. Oh, and if others go fast on it, he'll take credit for that too.

Still can't see any difference in the way he rides either bike. Paintshop that Ducati video into Repsol colours and who would know.

The Ducati also looked so much nicer in the all red colours. I miss seeing it as it was one hell of a sight seeing that thing hammered around.

Nobody has talked more shit about the ducati than Casey Stoner(with the possible exception of nostro or captain clueless to give him his proper title) and rightly so it's was his request in the first place that put ducati on this path, and he spent 4 years developing it. He has been quoted as saying that it is capable of winning every race, after 4 years and the entire development program solely to himself, nobody else was doing anything(if that isn't writing on th ewall what is??) he has managed at best less than 30%!!! of the results he has boasted it is capable of, some one more cynical than myself might think that stoner is completely full of shit in this instance..
