Casey Stoner: “I've lost the passion for MotoGP”

Reigning world champion Casey Stoner will retire at the end of 2012, the Australian saying he’s lost his passion and love for racing at a time when the Repsol Honda rider is arguably at the peak of his career. Disillusioned with constant rule changes, weary of criticism that he was a prolific crasher and rumours that the lactose intolerance issue he...

Stoner I think you have great courage and will inspire others to follow what you enjoy. Money cant buy "the best things in life which are free". Simoncini can not enjoy any money where he is now. Life is for living. Vinnychoff

Bit of a bombshell to some but not for me. Like he says he has been pushing all his life to get to the very top in the sport he loves and the very top of the sport he loves is about to be dumbed down to a level that he will not be happy with. Stoner doesn't use the collective "we" like the bloody Queen does. He uses it because he knows he is in partnership with others to make his bike the best it can be, from his mechanics and team manager to the suspension and the tyre manufacturers. He finally got his factory ride and it all came together and he/they blew everyone into the weeds, he'd finally proved himself to all those who'd had it easier than him all those years. Found himself a family as he thought, said family then shit on him though. That stays with you and when his present family shit on him last season and forced him to ride at Motegi I think he made up his mind then.

Not a Stoner fan

But my impression of him has changed alot after his MCN interview. He expresses some feelings that nobody had the slightest clue of.

We knew he fell out with Ducati but he was really hurt by them and i really can relate to wanting to watch your family grow up and relax, not putting up with shit you no longer really like.

I've never said this before but good on you Casey and all the best. Still glad your going though lol
