Le Mans MotoGP: Tyre temperature issue leaves Casey Stoner third

Casey Stoner lost the lead in the MotoGP world championship in Le Mans after temperature issues with his wet weather Bridgestone tyres left him in third position. The Aussie, who announced he will retire from racing at the end of 2012 on the eve of the French Grand Prix, was unable to hold off a hard charging Valentino Rossi on the...

stoner's explanations

I actually agree that it is somewhat a bad look when he makes these detailed explanations after he loses races, but they are usually not untrue as I suspect is also the case with this one, and he does exactly the same when he wins.

It should be obvious now that his motivations are not easily penetrated or simple, and perhaps this is  a process he engages in rather than a claim that he would otherwise have won.

As always a clear concise detailed

analysis from Stoner. This man knows what he's doing and why his bike wasn't right each and every time. I was thinking perhaps he was a touch off with his wet set-up, yet his explaination makes a lot of sense as the conditions varied.

But no you lot just whinge with your eyes and ears closed and dismiss it all as moaning.

Moaning - pot, kettle, black

Is it moaning to just relate some facts about how your race, or practise session, or qualifying went. Or is it just giving an account of what happened. Is it moaning to state that your tyre caused you a problem. Was Rossi moaning when he mentioned his visor steaming up which allowed the Tech3 bikes to close back in. Or just stating what happened. Or was he making an excuse up because they caught him and couldn't give them credit for being faster at that point. Or was he just relaying the facts.

Given the infantile moaning, bickering and downright poisoness verbal abuse that goes on this forum, it's laughable how some of you childish dolts have the gall to complain about 'moaning'

He is right, the tyres were giving him problems. But some of the blame has got to lie with him, because when you are using wet tyres and the track starts to dry out, you start going off line to try and cool the tyres down. I rarely saw him doing this compared to some off the other riders.
