"He had his 25pt failure, same as the others, but it was HIS fault. The next race he blobbed it..then he wrote himself off under presssure. This is the story of Casey. Fast, but fragile..the same as Freddie."
He's had 1 self-fault race crash in 2 years & 1 injury that's forced him to sit out races... who's the only other rider out there with that record... Jorge. Last year was Stoner's year, this is Jorge's. Dani binned his chances with a crash that was entirely his own fault... what's the big deal?
This is the story of Rossi, Dani, Casey & Jorge. They've all done it... I'll ask you again, have you been watching racing long?
... & wrote himself off under pressure?... you're talking about his 2nd flying lap in qualifying?... that sort of pressure?
Oh, & Stoner's time on the 2010 Ducati still beats JL's 2012 time to take the win at PI in almost identical conditions... so fragile... so fragile he can crash 5 times in a season & still set times like that... shows real mental weakness that does...
He did what he had to do... win or bin... justified his slection for a factory Honda ride & won... 15 races so far... that's 6 more than JL... & 6 more than DP... in other words this entire season's worth of wins for the 2 of them... fragile indeed.
Still... I know you respect Stoner, as a racer, because you've said you do... so you respect him for all of that, yeah?
