Poll: Will Stoner get bored and return to racing?

Next weekend out at Valencia sees the last race of two-time world champ Casey Stoner, after he announced his retirement earlier in the season. However, still only 26, many are predicting that Stoner will soon grow bored of a sedate life, and that we could see him back racing before too long. What's your opinion?

Got to agree with ginganz13's comment regard Clarckson's comment, did you watch the last race at Philip island?? even the other riders admit that he's in another class, you only need to watch him to see that. When did a light hearted poll become an un-provoked chance to slag off an amazing rider. The time he spent at ducati doing what Rossi couldn't i.e. winning means nothing either i suppose. Where has his reputation for moaning come from?? the biased one sided journalism? Good luck to him, he wont have to listen to any of this shit any more.

Give him...

two years max, once your ride or race bikes you cant stop, especially if your young and know how to do it well. He just needs some time off to 'find himself' and he will be back I am certain of it

It'd be ironic

if after 2 years of not winning he came back and started winning straight off. I doubt he'd get much respect for that either though.

I'd love it if he came back after a year just to piss off all the pricks on here that keep slaging him off

Yes...But

Yes, but I do not see him returning to MotoGP to scratch that itch unless it is a prototype class (unlike where it is going now). I think the Eurosport boys hit the nail on the head at the weekend when they said he might just take up the car racing in Australia.

I know, how about we ask Casey rather than a load of randomers, and/or wait and see? What a waste of effort.

Return to The Island 2013

He will go - most likely stay gone.

Casey is a very strong and directed individual, he wont sing along to a tune like most racers - and be very open about it too (much against a generic popularity figure, eg V. Rossi).

I do still remember reading the rumors of a possible return, something he might want to do - try and get 7 continuous wins at Philip Island - and be the rider with the highest number of "home race" wins in the 4 stroke generation. And in doing so, knock Rossi of the top spot of 6 at Mugello and his own 6 at the Island.

Im still sad to see him go though

V8 Supercars

He'll be racing in the V8 Supercars in Aus next season. That's the word down here. He tested one a while ago and was quick so he's keen to try his hand at that. As well as the fishing of course.

In his time

In his time in MotoGP Casey Stoner has been a class act and has absolutely nothing left to prove, why would he want to continue in a series de-valued by CRT...?

Looking at his MotoGP record and comparing it with the record of Valentino Rossi, the so-called "goat"...

As of 31 October 2012

Race wins: Stoner 38 Rossi 26

Points scored: Stoner 1799 Rossi 1696

Podiums: Stoner 70 Rossi 61

Race wins on a Ducati: Stoner 23 Rossi 0

 

Random fact:

Stoner has more than four times as many MotoGP wins on a Ducati than all Ducati riders combined.
