League Division 1. Good yes, great nope.
Can you really imagine Stoner in this race?
If Stoner leads from the start of a race then he will do well, if not then I cannot remember a time where he has fought his way through the pack and won, really battling for the win.
He is not entertaining in any way, either on or off the bike. And MotoGP is also about entertainment as well as results. By way of example......
In this 2007 review, he nis either falling o0ff, on his own or going past other riders in a stright line.
Even after Estoril he was whinging about all the issues with arm pump (not getting any after his child being born), chatter, etc, etc, etc,etc.
It is possible that he is in fact so good that no one can get close. However that is often due in large part to the bike, in this case clearly it is.
